Wendell Berry gave a wonderful (because I agree with it) response to a
question about this issue at the NOFA Conference the other day. In this
country we must be extremely careful about raising the spectre of
overpopulation as a contributing factor to environmental destruction,
since our per capita impact on global ecosystems is so enormous by
comparison to most of the rest of the world. Despite all the qualifiers, I
am always wary of the social assumptions/agenda of folks who look to
population control (and/or elimination) as a means of "saving the world."
