Debate of the Day 14
Back in the beginning of April, in our "What's the least green thing you do" thread, there was some conversation about how the least green thing you can do is having children. As of right now, the world population clock is at 6,663,607,254 (probably increased by at least 100, as I was typing that sentence).
I imagine most of you know about China's one-child policy which was instituted to curb their population growth (although, as we've seen, it's certainly helped in raw numbers...but it's caused other issues, such as China's missing girls and the bare branch phenomenon....and of course, population momentum is another thing).
So what do you think? Should governments step in and limit population growth?
You can really answer that question with just a yes or no. Or you can explain your answer. It's up to you.
