    There are four issues which need equal attention.

    Zionism, Islamisation, Globalisation, and Pollution.
    Pollution is very interesting.

    I don't see a problem with globalisation though.

    And at those seeing a problem with population, it's not. The richer a nation gets the less kids they have (higher opportunity cost). So poverty comes before population.

    Global warming is a lie and a hoax.

    9/11 was an inside job.

    I miss being ignorant.

    And as more people become developed there will be more pollution, and a bigger use of resources.

    What happens when/if the 1 billion people in China and India do become developed and demand more food/energy/water etc?

    The Earth doesn't have enough resources to globally sustain US-level infrastructure and consumption. Growing the whole world economy to become as rich as America or Western Europe is out of the question, and it makes the problem of pollution even worse.
    And that's not entirely true. The birth rate goes down relatively, not absolutely. A majority of fertile adults will want to reproduce no matter how rich they are.

    To many people and not enough resources.

    As we are the only animals that insist on keeping everyone alive and not letting nature control our numbers, in the next few years as demand for everything increases and resources decrease, we are going to see massive economical and political problems arise pretty much everywhere and hitting developed nations harder.

      The problem is, I don't think there is a massive issue.
      I feel that we are living in a time when everything is too sensationalised that it lessens the real drama of big issues.
      In the past there have been issues that brought people together to fight it, like racism and the right to vote.
      But now, there is nothing to that extent. Maybe that is a good thing though.

      Sustainability. Currently the world is a very unsustainable place.

      Though I cannot suggest 'perfect' methods of attaining a sustainable world, it could alleviate many of the aforementioned problems (reduce CO2 (though more would need to be done to greatly limit climate change due to the lag from previous generations of unsustainable practice), poverty, pollution, loss of biodiversity, over-population and potential conflict (over resources))
