I am writing in support of J. Gilbert’s excellent and insightful letter. It’s fairly easy to distance oneself from others if there’s only one other person in the elevator with you, but if there are 10 other people, you can’t help but be cheek-by-jowl. The same is true of sidewalks and restaurants and buses.
If you have more than one child, you’re compounding the problem for future generations.
Every child born will add to the destruction of our planet, because trees are going to be removed to make room for more housing for that child and his/her child(ren). Just like an elevator, there is a limit on the number of people our tiny planet can support, and we’ve passed that number already.
Overpopulation – how dense can we get?
