Absolute nonsense!

FROM what our government tells us it would appear the greatest problems we, and the world face, are producing more food, building more houses, and increasing GDP so as to employ more people, and of course climate change. Does that mean population can increase indefinitely. Nonsense!

Realistically. Population growth is the first, foremost and overriding problem, exacerbated by migration.

We already have too much land devoted to agriculture. Too many conurbations. Too much exploitation of natural resources and pollution. GDP is not the same as wealth, which is created by technological innovation. Whilst employment has no direct correlation with GDP, it is an ethical problem about sharing resources.
