China and India are overpopulating the planet and destroying the atmosphere.

Almost 40% of the world's population comes from China & India, as does almost 40% of the world's pollution.

Western governments need to take action against them, they are causing a lot problems for the world!

What do you want them to do? Start executing their citizens?

I am pretty sure they have been doing their best to promote contraception and limit childbirth (see China's one child policy).

The problem is no longer Asia, it's more towards Africa where the birth rate is still sky high.

Remember China and India's pollution is mainly producing goods for the West.

No western governments do not need to “take action against them”. Each country should be responsible for their own pollution control. There simply needs to be more education in the matter and prevention of mass production of unnecessary luxuries, which are often sold to people in western countries. Also the amount of travelling people are doing isn’t helping, going on holidays via plane every year isn’t necessary nor good for the environment (especially those who fly very frequently throughout the year).

Just about every industrialised country needs to do better, and once more start doing it others will follow (besides those obsessed with their nuclear weapons 😑).

Your post doesn't really make sense. You say 40% of the world's population is in India or China but then that they contribute 40% of the world's population? If they are polluting relative to their population that seems pretty fair. You fail to mention that the USA pollutes a lot more for its population size. Also you fail to mention than both India and China manufacture a lot of goods for other countries so part of their pollution is based on the demand from other countries'.

2.2 children per woman on average in India. Close to most western countries. In China it's lower.
Their emissions per person are much lower than that of the US, or UK...

I know this is a troll thread. It's a new account. But this is just in case someone sees this thread and believes this ****e

If you look at this chart China is 12th and India 20th in terms of pollution per person

India is kinda a concern yes

China isn't its population is already starting to shrink due to the one-child policy,

But the one everyone is really looking at is Sub-Saharan Africa. With women in countries like Niger, Nigeria, DRC, Tanzania and Uganda having 7 children, which Africa infrastructure cannot support
