This idea is that the world should not be so precious about the topic of overpopulation. Overpopulation occurs when a species' population exceeds the carrying capacity of its ecological niche. This is pretty much what has happened with humans. Unfortunately the impacts have been and continue to be even bigger on other species than ourselves. Overpopulation has been a taboo topic in political discourse for too long. As we have proved with other sensitive global topics, nobody will touch it unless the people are having the conversation. This idea is not the start of the conversation, but over coming months and years, if this site and app become more used, it can be one of many wet fingers in the breeze as to whether people think it is an issue that needs more attention at all levels of global conversation.
