Overpopulation myth — Having kids will not destroy the planet. Perhaps it can even help

Posted by in categories: climatology, cryptocurrencies, habitats, sustainability

On January 2023, 60 minutes interviewed Paul Ehrlich, the author of the 1968 Population Bomb.

Although I agree with some of the points, like the destruction of habitat, and climate change, and those points indeed need addressing. the overpopulation arguments in the book and the interview have already been proven wrong, repeatedly.

The 18th century Malthusian catastrophe predictions never materialized. Thanks to modern technology, new clean energy sources, and modern agriculture, our planet doesn’t have an overpopulation problem despite having more people today than at ant time in history.

It’s okay to have more kids. Kids will not “destroy the planet”. They may actually help.

This video explain why.
