Should people adopt rather than have children of their own?
The human population is already too high.
The planet can support a great deal more people than what already exist (estimates are around
). Especially if humankind were to focus on more sustainable materials and power sources, such as nuclear power.
If everyone adopted instead of procreating, after 18 years there would be no more children left in the world, and a generation or two after that the human species would
, including Japan, Germany, and Russia, have declining populations. Further limiting the population would exacerbate the problems of labour shortage and overburdened pensions that underpopulation already causes.
