3 Celebrate more people

It is now seen as an article of faith that the world suffers from overpopulation but exactly who are there too many of? You, me, my friends? For World Population Day 2009, we should be celebrating our increased numbers and looking forward to more not less of the earth’s richest resource, humanity. Volunteers present the case in this inspiring riposte to modern Malthusians.

It’s refreshing to see a video which celebrates the population growth. The more people there are, the higher the chance we have to solve the major world problems. We are human beings, no matter how many of us there are, we will always find a way to adapt to any problem. If these ‘natural’ resourses ‘run out’ as scietists think will happen, there will be always a solution, and that can only happen if there are more minds trying solve the problem.
