Not a single mention of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malthusian_trap#Malthus.27_theoretical_argument

The Malthusian trap is about to snap shut and take the undeveloped world with it.

We will not listen and begin http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Optimum_population measures. We will continue to feed r-types far outbreeding us with evermore hungry mouths to consume Western productivity. When the East rises, they will die regardless. You think China will care anymore for an African peasant than one of its own?

Strangely, the UN expects the world population to have drastically decreased by 2300, without explaining how.
