[quote:Anonymous Coward 832834:MV85MzU4NjBfMTQ1MTU5MzVfQzJGNEQ4RTU=] The earth will never be overpopulated. This is someone's fear mongering. There is currently enough food to feed all those on earth. The problem is multifaceted. One is that there is corruption in high places and the food that should get to people in times of need is not given out but the food or money is used for other purposes. Do your research. Also, disease plays a large role in keeping the earth's population down. Medicine will never "cure" disease. It hasnt get and it may not really want to... I believe one reason why space exploration is at a standstill is because of warmongering. Countries around the globe are very focused on killing, making killing machines bigger, smaller, better, you name it; more ways to kill those on this earth. If countries were to focus their resources and energy on the future of humankind, instead of warmongering, and finding better ways to kill humans, then maybe we, as a species would explore space. But, right now, the way I see it, it will never happen. [/quote]
And I`m not talking about the half-hearted attempts by the space agencies involved with such projects as the international space station, but a truly concerted effort by the whole world to seek out life-sustaining planets upon which to colonize.
Earth has a finite amount of resources and the six and a half billion of us are using those up at an ever-increasing rate. Isn`t it time we all pulled together and reached for the stars?!
In the 21st century, I`d love to know what`s stopping us. Is it technology? Is it a lack of will?
