What do you think about this talk?

This is such an important topic that impacts all of us:

I love the opening:

"The Earth is full. Full of us, full of our stuff. Full of our waste, full of our demands."

Yes, it seems the earth is full.

The problem is, what can be done about it? Many people won't use contraception when it is given to them free.

Wars lower the population but that is a hell of way to go about it.

I don't know what the answer is.
