Glad to see that Ted Turner and other propaganda works on people like you, but I'll ask you to consider how narrow minded and wrong this really is. Lets ask a few pointed questions to see how well you grasp not only the complexity of the problem, but how you are wrong.
Pollution is a major factor in climate change, loss of agriculture, availability of water, availability of fish/game, and causes decreased health. We live in a pollution based economy and who among the wealthy is willing to give up making assloads of money burning oil and dumping garbage for the benefit of society? Many of these people pay to lobby to do these things for profit, while claiming that population is too high. Many of these people have 5+ kids (Ted Turner is one of them) telling you that you should only have 1 child because population is too high.
How many wealthy people have given up all their wealth to improve society? Many will tell you that you should give things up, while again they bribe people in governments to pay less in taxes and hold more and more wealth. Some people are obviously worse than others, but none of the wealthy people telling you that population is a problem make any changes that benefit the whole of society. They make changes that benefit themselves and their buddies. Members of society to them are simply tools to get more and more wealth.
Sure we would agree that to some extent and in some locations population is an issue. At the same time, getting all of the blame when people make money strip farming, strip mining, dumping garbage and toxic materials, and deforesting huge swaths of land is a much, much, bigger problem. Population is not the root cause of the problem, greed and immorality are the root cause.
