Population and the United Nations

The UN's 2001 State of World Population Report contains a lot of useful ammunition to use against the complacent who want to believe that the rest of us are just alarmists. Sadly, it incorporates Mother Culture's fundamental teaching on the issues, that the way to deal with catastrophic population growth is to throw food at it--exactly like trying to put out a fire by throwing gasoline on it. We must make policy makers understand that the food race (like the arms race) is one that CANNOT be won, because every "win" on the side of food production stimulates a "win" on the side of population growth. Like the arms race, the food race is one that must be walked away from, and until world leaders understand, accept, and deal with that, our future will remain bleak.
