If you think about it, the horrific genocides of the 20 th century, could have started to decrease the population. I don't know, what do you think.
    I think you need to find a source that actually understands sustainable farming. The fact is that as technology increases not only is it possible to grow more food with less people it also becomes possible to grow more food in less space. Those who claim that we are overcrowding the world already quote us as needing 5 miles square per-person for providing sustinance. The fact is you can feed a family of 5 on a 10x10 foot square of land. Personally I see a huge dicotamy in those numbers.

    Don't worry though, with declining birth rates in industrial countries, wars, and plague, the world population is no longer replacing itself. All we have to do is export technology to all the third world countries and your wishes can come true.

    I'd say that Natives are an endangered race among humans and their culture and language will pretty much be forgotten in a few decades, which is sad.
    I would agree that it will be sad if the languages are lost, fortunatly there are those that are doing something about it. The best way for them to preserve their culture however is to share it. Let the rest of us know about it so we can appreciate it as well.

    As for the first part, much like the illegitimacy rate amoung blacks, it's a problem that only they can fix themselves. You can't tell someone they have a problem with alcohol, drugs, or suicide and expect it to fix things. They have to change on their own. Own up to their own mistakes and fix them. Sad, but true. And yes, there are similar problems in the US amoung the Native Americans.

    Humans will be responsible for their own downfall in the end. Species dissapering is the first step to something bigger I think. Sure we can do something about it, but human nature will never change and that's the big problem. Humans will always want to expand, have more power, and control more things, that includes nature and animals. Of course, nature always turns on mankind, but he still doesn't get it does he....

    You've got a point there Electrastar. Its in our nature to want more and to be greedy sometimes at the cost of the natural environment and the endangered species.

    You never know when we wake up the next morning finding ourselves in the next World War...............................

    I think you all need a better understanding of renewable resources and bussiness.
    renewable resource

    n : any natural resource (as wood or solar energy) that can be replenished naturally with the passage of time
    Bussinesses like to have a constant result. Surprises are to be avoided if at all possible. If your product is based on a natural source and it is harvested wild then your results will vary from year to year. Natural ecology works in cycles, one thing will be plentiful leading to an increase of another which then reduces the first, and so on and so forth. That's bad for bussiness. So when ever possible bussiness will "farm" their product allowing them complete control over output and reproduction. Not only don't they use up their resource but the wild resource tends to increase as well as production moves away from "gathered" resources.

    There is a natural cycle to resource management in bussiness as well. When a culture is agrigarian they are dependent completely upon natural resources and are at the whim of nature in entirety. When they "evolve" to an Industrial society that resource initially increases greatly. They have the means to use the resources but not to make them. This is when most pollution and damage occures. As Industry increases and moves into a technologically based user system then there is the ability to repair the damage done and to produce renewable resources for consumption. As Technology increases there is even an increase in non-use natural resources above what there was when the society was agrigarian.

    The greatest boon to natural reproduction is not a lack of man but an increase of technology. In countries that are primarily agrigarian there is a constant struggle between natural resources and filling need. Supply and demand. But when you add technology to the mix then that changes. A good example of this is a country in Africa where they are losing (if they haven't lost) their forests because of a need for cooking fuel. The woods are literally being carried away one stick at a time. This forest is within spitting distance of a city. All they would need to stop the deforestation would be an electrical transformer connected to the city grid and a bunch of hotplates....but the country is in the beginings of industry and while they can provide electricity for their few main cities they are as yet unable to provide it to the rest of the country due to a lack of structural basis for such an undertaking. Given time that should change. They can replant their woods and rebuild. Just remember, there are more woodlands in the US now then there were 200 years ago.
