Population Growth

#1 is about consensus and it would be the most desireable solution.

#2 *is* about imposing rules.

#3 is what I suggest will happen if we do not address the problem -
if we do nothing.  I think it is the most likely outcome.

A more affluent and educated population will undoubtedly have fewer
children but the population would most likely still continue to
grow.  The big problem would be that individuals will require more
resourses (bigger footprint).

Just look at the North American/European lifestyle.  I see no sign
that we are willing to reduce our patterns of consumption.  Should
developing nations expect to take less than us?

Can we wait 15 generations?
