That would work.

Although the remaining half million might all be wiped out suddenly by a particularly virulent disease contracted from a dirty telephone.

Remember to take two of each animal.

(Note: Last time we did that it worked.)

The big difference between us and the bacteria referred to, is that we are capable of continueing to think out and implement improvements to how we use our resourses and "waste" to overcome the crowding that would otherwise lead to our demise. To infinity and beyond!

You may well be right, but I have seen little evidence of it yet. Actually I am confident you are right, I just think it's a shame that we will surely have to wait until after some (probably) minor disaster to change our ways.

Capable of, sure. But much like bacteria we don't until something forces us, so in a way it's quite like evolution.

There's global warming and there's local warming. Look at the statistics concerning California warming.

We'll sorely miss glaciers once they're largely gone

Aah, who needs 'em?

Seriously, please tell us how your solution will go about achieving a total worldwide population of just 650,000 people.
JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - South African workers striking over pay and benefits have a new complaint -- they no longer have the energy for sex.

Monroe Mkalipi, a regional chairman of the powerful COSATU federations of trade unions, complained that work conditions are so tough workers can't perform in the bedroom.

"The harshness that we have in all our workplaces is so severe to such a point that when you get home at night it becomes a problem expanding our families," the SAPA news agency quoted him as saying.

Public sector workers are negotiating with the government to increase pay for the first time since 2004.

Maybe it is just me, but if work conditions are so bad you can't perform why would increased pay be the stated goal? Shorter work days or week, more mechanized help, better environmental conditions or something similar seem more in line with the stated problem. Or maybe that really isn't the problem and is a NEGOTIATING TACTIC.

That was my first thought too. But then I started wondering if maybe there's a language translating deal here. Maybe the workers complained WE NEED A RAISE. And it came across as WE CAN'T GET IT UP.
