2. Overpopulation

Every problem we have is caused by one thing—as this piece says—there are too damn many of us.

The world is several billion over its carrying capacity.
This means that deforestation, global warming, and general ecological destruction will continue.

The economic paradigm we operate under—an economy where unbridled consumption is not only encouraged, but is necessary to forestall economic collapse—is utterly unsustainable.

There will be war for what remains—as all beauty is despoiled and all morality is cast aside—while we fight in the ruins.
