Are they're any solutions to the world's biggest problem?
Severe overpopulation and over consumption. It might seem like a dumb post, but most of the world's problems can be traced back to this. There are just too many people and not enough resources to go around. I just can't think of any real solutions to this. Anybody have anything to comment.
The world's population has gone from 2.2 billion in 1940 to 7 billion today. It will probably be 10+ billion by 2050.“People just do the strangest things when they believe they are entitled...But they do even stranger things when they just plain believe.”

I think we need to look to Logan's Run for the answers to our problems.Buying "Broder" unlicensed sets and singles.

If over population is your biggest concern, I would say go after conservatives and the Pope telling them to shut up about "abstinence only. no contraceptives. make abortion illegal. etc"
That would be a major step. I mean, we have the Pope going to Africa and telling them condoms help spread AIDS. Stop that crap and you might get somewhere."He's gone crazy," "You have to snap out of it," "Take your meds," or, "Don't be such a downer" serve only to mock, belittle, and make light of mental illness. Such phrases only continue the negative stigma and keep those who suffer from getting help. If these phrases, or phrases like them, are part of your at-hand vocabulary, you are part of the problem. #STOPtheStigma

I honestly don't think overpopulation is a problem (right now) nor is it the cause of most of the world's current problems. The majority of wars that are going on or conflicts have to do more with religion or somebody different than somebody instead of attacking a country for food or water. Will this be an issue in the future? Yes but not now.Trade Bucket: Hidden Content

As for a solution, I hate to say this, but populations do have a way of rebalancing with the ecosystem. It won't be pretty, but it will ultimately work.

if the majority of people actually cared about others and/or themselves, our issues would be much different. but liberals will always attack the conservatives(had to throw that in their for you wickabee), the has nots will always attack the has, and people will continue to covet and depend.
call it want you want, but how many people having abortions would listen to the Pope to start with?
abortion has been legal for how long now? no matter how much people complain it will always be here and be legal, there is no stopping it.
prevention is a better plan, but why aren't more people figuring out a better way to handle all this? the conservatives may be pro life (well most) but no one has cared about them for a while now. look at gay marriage, immigration, and marijuana laws, the ultra conservatives have been ousted and just make a lot of noise in the background now.Jay Shrewsbury

"if" should be capitalized
"but" should be capitalized
There should be a space between "conservatives" and "(had".
"their" should be "there"
The accepted terms are "haves" and "have nots" but I'll let it slide.
If the ultra-conservatives have been relegated into the background (which they haven't, really) maybe ask why? Is it because liberals are evil and eat their heads? Or is it that ultra conservatives, by definition, are against progress. So while the world progresses naturally as it does and should, they hold onto old, outdated and archaic beliefs about society?
