    From a layman's perspective, those are five that I'd start with. Experts in the field may have others.

    Reduce energy consumption by household to pre-1900 levels
    Forced steralization & euthanasia
    Raze the suburbs & replace with trees
    Move remaining populations back into concentrated areas

    The list goes on and on.

    Speaking of "triggered". No one needs a "safe space" from posters without the backbone to identify their political leaning in writing.

    Those are expert opinions, just like the ones you provided. They are under the umbrella of population control, which is one of the least talked about solutions, even though its the "best" solution.

    Nobody wants to talk about it because its icky, but if you are serious about altering the planet's ecological and climate makeup, you have to engage in population controls.

Oh that's right, you're pretending not to see my documented example of hypocrisy. So when you work up the courage, please address the documented hypocrisy of fox news and how that affects your trust in them.
    Unlike you, I don't read Fox News, I don't watch Fox News, I don't listen to Fox News. Fox News isn't running for office or wanting to control policymaking in this country. I could care less what Fox News does or doesn't do, especially on an issue like this.

    Pathetic deflection, attempting to divert from the hypocrisy you've just displayed. All I did was mirror your posting, and you got up in arms about it. Next.

    Unable to address my post? No surprise. You are dismissed.

    Address what? "Tree huggers want to kill people?" Why would I address that?

    Well said. That's exactly the problem. Unless we get population under control we're all goners. I read recently that the CURRENT global population exceeds by 50% what earth's resources can sustain. We also need to get away from the idea that the only successful economic system must be based on continual growth.
