By means of voluntary birth control and a halt to immigration.
We certainly do not hate children, but we dislike their increasing numbers.
As long as this country cannot support its inhabitants in a sustainable way and as long as we are dependent upon the import of food, no new people should settle here, not even from the EU.
Immigrants strive for a lifestyle similar to ours and will therefore contribute to a further depletion of the earth and to the pollution of the environment.
All people with a residence permit are allowed to stay. Illegal residents should be remigrated.
We never mention the ethnic background of people, but only their numbers.
Europe as a whole is overpopulated too. Given the carrying capacity of this area, one out of two Europeans is one too many.
We do not want to force anyone to carry on living, if he or she does not wish to do so. In the future the freedom of a voluntary end of life can have a small effect on the population size.
We do not commit ourselves to a political party, for there is no party with population policy on its political agenda.
Theoretically it is possible to transfer food surpluses to countries with food shortages. This would however require a huge amount of fossil fuel and lead to further pollution.
The best way of fighting poverty is birth control, whereby the number of people is adjusted to the natural carrying capacity of an area.
We certainly do not just focus on developing countries. The people who exploit the earth the most live in rich countries. The number of inhabitants of those rich countries should go down significantly as well.
It might be possible to increase the food production for an ever growing population, but if population growth continues the way it does, the limits of agricultural production will be reached.
A growing global consumption is the main cause of the depletion of natural resources. The best way to counter it is to reduce the number of consumers.
Actually it is rather the other way around. More and more we have to create work for a growing number of job seekers.
The money we don’t have to spend for schools and education can be allocated to care for the elderly. Anyway, the problem cannot be solved by the immigration of young people. They will grow old as well.
Certainly, but not when an unrestricted implementation of this right leads to overpopulation and the oppression of other human rights, such as the right to a certain standard of living for posterity.
Nobody really knows how much the world population will grow in this century. Even if the medium estimate turns out to be correct, these 10 billion people will exceed the carrying capacity of our planet.
We certainly do not wish to deprive women of their right to bear children and to take on maternity leave. However, in a situation of overpopulation, conceiving and raising children should not be financially stimulated by the government.
Each additional child will add about 9,000 tons of CO2-emission to that of its mother, at least in the US. Individual measures to save energy can only reduce this huge amount by 10 to 20 percent.
