It has been predicted by climatologists that India, Pakistan etc, will be near the level of survivability within the next 100 years. India will have one if the largest populations in the world! What is going to happen. Our grandchildren will see the result of the disaster.

Bangladesh is near that now, isn't it?

Perhaps we have reached a point where governments/people are realising this; more women being educated, not just about family planning, could mean a limit on family size and perhaps crisis point will soon be reached and populations will begin to decline.

? Not sure how limiting the population is going to help people survive.
