For those new to resource depletion and the issues surrounding the subject, a good related book to read would be Jared Diamond's Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed. Or you may also go to the dieoff site listed/linked over off to the right of this blog.
I don't really believe in killing us all off intentionally either, as this professor also agrees. Likewise, I just recognize the fact that we humans are like bacteria in a petrie dish. Once it gets too crowded in the dish, the bacteria start to turn on one another and eat eachother until they all die-off. Think of the world as the petrie dish. It's either this or try to willingly and collectively control our population rates. Let the elderly die peacefully and comfortably if there are no cures, and those of child-bearing age avoid pregnancy unless it is planned! It's quite simple and would take some time but it could work. I simply don't believe that war nor abortion is a desirable means of population control. However, each avenue seems to be used more than anything else. "Are humans smarter than yeast?????" Thanks for the quote Bob.
