"We've got to stabilize the population...  We're too many people.  That's why we have global warming.  We have global warming because too many people are using too much stuff.  If there were less people they'd be using less stuff."  Ted Turner.

"The primary challenge facing our species is the reproduction of our species itself... How the hell can we witter on about tackling global warming, and reducing consumption, when we are continuing to add so relentlessly to the number of consumers?...  It is time we had a grown-up discussion about the optimum quantity of human beings in this country and on this planet."  Boris Johnson, British Member of Parliament, 2007.
