These are just some of the serious problems fouling the environment and ruining the health of our home planet. We haven't even touched on many other quality of life concerns: education, medical care, traffic congestion, waste disposal, crime, war, violence, and many others.

 (By 1975, world population increased to over 4,000,000,000.)

What is the cause of all these societal problems and global degradation? What can be done to reverse the destruction and set the planet on a course of life-affirming renewal?  Some people might examine one issue at a time--global warming, water and food shortages, etc.-- to look at causes and solutions. More astute thinkers might discern answers by reading between the lines. In this brief essay, you merely need to read between the parentheses to understand the major contribution to all these problems.

(This week, in 2011, world population reached about 7 billion.)

It shouldn't be hard to grasp, but for too many it is: humans have been and will continue proliferating at a far faster pace than the Earth can handle.When the consequences of overpopulation are widely understood--and when human impact is acknowledged and resistance to population control overcome--only then can we begin reversing this dangerous course. Only then will there be a realistic hope of healing and saving the only planet we have. The longer we wait, the harsher the consequences.

 (By 2050, the population of the world is expected to be about 9,300,000,000.)
