Agreed - but judging from the past and current events, I'm not holding my breath for an intelligent and fair solution, although if we ALL held our breath this problem would be solved .

Or the ocean, or bore down a ways into Mother Earth and you reach a nice comfy 70F all year round. A few grow lights and tanning beds and we are all set. Seems easier than accelerating a lot of mass beyond our gravitational pull. There WILL be technological solutions, until the next limit is reached. Rinse/repeat.

I've always believed that overpopulation was an issue that should be dealt with in some form. That was one of the main reasons I never had children. But I have 15 nieces and nephews who are now starting their own families. I came to the conclusion that it will only be controlled with disease, pollution etc. All I can do is hope to live the best I can through it all. The Chinese may have more than solved their problem with one child only. When I was over there in 1993 I saw mostly little boys!

I watched all the clips. As I was watching the students' faces I had to wonder if anything was sinking in? Thanks for bringing them to our attention!
