Although the professional alarmists would never tell you this, world population growth is flattening out rapidly. In perhaps two decades, the western hemisphere will reach zero growth or close to it. And the main reason for this flattening out? Modernization. If we want to "save the earth", the worst thing we could do is deny developing nations the chance to be affluent.
Many more seats would be open on the metro if some liberal environmentalists had their way. Left-leaning politicians, pundits and activists have often encouraged population control, for what they say is the solution to climate change and other planetary problems. In a recent interview with StarTalk Radio host Neil deGrasse Tyson, HBO Real Time host Bill Maher offered his suggestion.

"The planet is too crowded and we need to promote death.”

Maher isn’t alone in his extreme view. Here are some other like-minded personalities who think we need to control the number of people.
