Overpopulation is a big issue. It is something we should consider.

However, that's the sort of thing we each have to think about BEFORE we start running around reproducing.

In this case though, I am thinking more about personal pollution creation, or per capita pounds of garbage.

While there are more than enough people in the world, some of us use far more than our fair share of everything, and create a disproportionately large amount of waste.

If the average American used as much electricity as the average European or ate as much meat as the average Asian, are part of the world would be very different than it is.
