I have always thought population growth as an eventual problem on a finite planet, however I do agree with Ian Angus and Simon Butler that the larger and more pressing problem is; corporations and armies polluting the world and destroying ecosystems in a mad grab for short term profits.
They suggest an "action plan...cease all military operations at home and abroad; begin phasing out fossil fuels and biofuels and replace them with wind, geothermal, wave and solar power; bolster efforts by farmers to convert to ecological agriculture; eliminate factory farms and agribusiness; support local food production; increase public transportation networking; regulate corporations to eliminate waste, planned obsolescence, pollution, and manipulative advertising; and ensure that women everywhere have access to birth control and abortion."
Seems like the proper direction from here.
