Solutions to The World's Population Growth
“What can be done to curb the human population growth in order to prevent the world's population from exceeding the carrying capacity of the planet?”
If the world's population is deemed a problem, then the obvious solution would be to reduce the world's population. Now, since rush hour traffic is such a bitch, I would say that the world's population is a problem. Hell..., if you have ever looked at people as obstacles, then you know what I'm talking about. Let's say you are ready to check out at the super market. You see a short line. You make a beeline for it and someone beats you to it. Well..., as far as I'm concerned, that's a world population problem ;)
Do you want an actual answer? cuz I've got one, but it's pretty drastic.
As an actual answer, we do what China has done. Limit the number of children each family can have, and impose penalties on those who exceed the limit, just to enforce it.
That would do a great, albeit constricting, way of actually limiting the number of people populating the world. Now to deal with the actual over populated world. I say in all honestly, we start killing people. Drastic I know, but if it gets to that point we'd be doing that anyway, at least this way we can control who we want to have killed to maximize human efficiency.
I say start with the death row inmates, those who are on trial. Just skip the trial, they messed up at some point way to big to go back now at this point we've come to.
Next if the population isn't low enough, the for life prisoners. They were in it for the long haul, at least now we've saved money, we've saved food, and we've reduced the population.
After that, we make a very subjective decision. We kill off the prisoners who were imprisoned( for any amount of time) for crimes we've deemed too unfit to be in modern society, just as a suggestion, I'd say those killers, and at least the rapists. Not all the rapists, just the ones having non conceptual sex, with someone under 16. That's just my opinion though.
A practical application seems unlikely to get global consent, making it less practical than it seems on paper.
The thing is, carrying capacity is its own limit. We won't ever get much above it because the very nature of it means a percentage of people equal the percentage above the limit will soon die off due to lack of resources. These kinds of culls happen naturally in the wild all the time.
Of course, most species aren't as globally destructive as we are....
Find more life sustainable planets.
If we can safely colonize Mars and the Moon, we'll be able to split up the population.
Imagine going to some other planet that could sustain life.
I believe a planet like this exists, because Earth can't possibly be the only planet with life. If another planet has life, then it can sustain life. If it can sustain life, then there's a possibility we could move some of our population to that planet.
A more practical solution is to make an artificial environment on Mars and on the Moon.
This would still serve its purpose for the time being...
We wouldn't have to kill anyone. Instead (obviously already implied), people would just move. We could have 3 billion people on Earth instead of 7 billion.
1 billion could go the the moon.
3 billion could go to Mars.
1. ruin the environment (this it not my recommended method)
2. build a fuckton more cities in every place possible
3. start killing pregnant mothers until the ratio of guys to girls is 2:1.
4. congrats, you just immorally slowed down the population growth
