   I can hardly believe my eyes, someone insinuating that there are too many
humans in the world! Someone out there thinks that there could be some
connection between numbers of people and climate change!
  Culling is out, can anyone suggest a more humane way of controlling human
population growth, like birth control via a system of pregnancy credits
perhaps, each successful pregnancy ultimately being equivalent to a CO2
output equivalent to 500 4WDs over the child's lifetime?
  Maybe I'm being ridiculous, Science will surely save us, but I don't think
changing lightbulbs will. Every extra human probably uses enough energy to
light up Sydney Harbour Bridge for a decade, and the world population will
increase by about three billion over the next twenty years.
