Paul Ehrlich, author of the famous apocalyptic vision, The Population Bomb, has released another book, The Dominant Animal, and despite the inaccuracy of some of his previous predictions his beliefs remain pretty much unchanged. Our Civilization, now global, is headed for collapse unless we do something. So what can we do?! Well there are many things we can do; kill millions of people in Nazi-like fashion, systematically eliminating populations in strategic areas such as Africa, mass sterilization, or wait for the Earth to take care of it, which wouldn't be much prettier. Modern science suggests that something needs to be done, but what? Europeans have enacted successful progressive policies which have led to population decline in those countries, such as France for example. On the more extreme end, China has placed a one-child limit on couples, and hits them with a prohibitive tax if they produce more. Of course the problem is much worse there than it is in Europe. But what can we do? Give women what they want - reproductive rights. Provide Birth Control to everyone. Keep abortion legal. Otherwise we're headed for disaster. The Nazi-like vision outlined above is not far from the reality we would surely experience if the food starts to run out, which it has in places like Sudan. Need I say more?
