_DSC0069There’s too many people on this planet and something needs to be done about it. I know – lets start an online petition and send as many signatures as possible to our world leaders and presidents? Please click here…No? Okay, lets get Bono, the Dalai Lama, Nelson Mandela, Jordan, Bill Clinton, Bill Gates and Tony Blair on the case to raise awareness to the plight of world overcrowding and the unsustainable demand on resources that will lead to wars and starvation? No?! What about Bono on his own then? Hmmm. I know, the Pope could get involved – but he doesn’t like contraception and his way of curbing over population is telling Africans that using condoms spreads AIDs…Banksy, are you reading this? Can you start stenciling the relevant messages and graff in urban areas, we know the yoof will listen to you? Oh, come on, Sir Bob Geldof – pull your finger out, it’s time for Feed The World 2065!


Okay, I’ve got it, I’m going to start an email campaign. If you send this to ten of your friends we can raise awareness and people eveywhere will have less kids, plus Microsoft will send each and every one of you $100 as a thank you for taking part in a small survey at the bottom of the email. No okay. I give up. I’m starting up a Facebook Group and Twittering 12,000 of my closest friends my concerns. 


It does seem glaringly obvious that there are too many people on the planet but not is being done about it. India had the voluntary snip in the 70s. China had the policy of one child per family to cope with over population. Shouldn’t something be done now – and everywhere? This planet is only a certain size and cannot cope with billions and billions more people consuming like it’s 1999. If it wasn’t so overcrowded we wouldn’t have to worry about global warming for starters – we could all drive Hummers and take as many long haul flights per year as we liked. But that’s the least of our worries when there’s not enough food and water on Mother Earth to go around. 


Something needs to be done. But everything seems futile and, ahem, impotent. Even this post is as useful as a nun’s tit. Click here if you agree and would like to get involved.
