    There is a law of ecology that says as populations of any species grow, ecological pressures (scarcities and predation) grow as counter-measures. I know there are some here who believe that human technologies make us an exception to this law. In my perspective, this is like believing that our aeronautics knowledge make us immune to the law of gravity, but such laws are not breakable – the consequences are automatic. The question in ecology is whether we are flying or falling, and if falling, how close is the splat at the bottom.
