Brief thoughts on population question

Some of the people who are against lowering world human population also complain about overcrowded places. I am on neither side of this argument but I find both sides to be a bit hypocritical in their approach. For me before we even have this debate, we need to have better management of our energy and food resources. To have better control of what position we are in, assess our situation and then see what is the best way forward. For me, this is also a each to their own, regional problem with their unique solutions. Not a clear cut one size fits all global matter.
