Overpopulation is self-adjusting. It's not pretty, famine, war and diseases comes in to play, but it is still self-adjusting.
We are not going to see the end of the world because of it.

As the technological level of a civilisation increases, the birth rate decreases. So population does tend to be seld adjusting.
