Of course in the ME it is not unknown to be a granny in your early 30's as you can take a 12 year old wife. Though most people that have to work for a living have to leave it longer these days, certainly in the western world as we want the nicer (materialistic) things in life only working can bring.

Have you guys all seen the opening to Idiocracy? The middle class couple, both working, putting off kids till they are beyond fertility age, whilst the underachieving, low-IQ family keep producing sprogs to keep their lineage going, leading to a future run by morons?

The current birth rate in the UK is something like 1.8 now? Imagine a UK without immigration or single mothers. How many generations is that exactly before we become barren? When schools are closing down due to lack of pupils (as they've been doing already)

This concept terrifies me, but it's a not topic that you can discuss with many people.

The world is over-populated so fewer births overall is a good thing. Just a shame that it's not equally distributed.

......... and even if we could somehow uniformly bring the birth rate down to a sustainable and manageable level, the population is still in the wrong place. 86 pct of the world's population lives north of the Equator.

It's unequal even with some 65% of the landmass being North of the equator.

No ideal solution, but people still need to stop breeding so much.

When looking at population issues, you need to take a global approach. If you are going to argue that the world is over-populated, then you need to ask yourself in relation to what. If you argue that it is over-populated in relation to available resources, then you are wrong. There is plenty to go around. It is the unequal distribution of such resources that is the problem.

But then I've got 5 kids, so I would say that.

You need a TV in your bedroom.

Once you pull people out of poverty , give them access to education and work towards gender equality, issues like overpopulation work themselves out.

This is so true. Look at Kerala in the early nineties... one of the poorest states, yet they managed to reduce infant mortality and morbidity rates significantly merely by increasing female literacy rates.

Interestingly, it was the only place in history that had had a democratically-elected Communist government.
