We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.

Blokes, it's time to man-up and face the snip - the future of the planet could well depend upon your decision, argues Dr Paul Willis who is the director of RiAus, Australia's unique national science hub, which showcases the importance of science in everyday life. The well-known palaeontologist and broadcaster previously worked for ABC TV's Catalyst program.

At first glance it appears to be a very long bow that would need to be drawn to connect something such as global resource consumption to a personal decision to have a vasectomy.

But these and many other critical issues are linked via global population directly to your genitals and your personal choice in how you use them.

Although 7 billion sounds a lot, in relation to the land mass of the earth, it is a small number.

Yet humans are not the only life the planet needs to sustain. =(

Our planet has a livestock problem.

Consider the sheer weight of the industry: In the last 100 years, the biomass of cattle across the globe has increased by almost250 percent. Compare that to elephants, whose biomass declined by 90 percent.

Actually, the cows are the real biomass hogs

7 Billion: How Did We Gt So Big So Fast?

Uploaded on Jul 9, 2010

http://www.ted.com The world's population will grow to 9 billion over the next 50 years -- and only by raising the living standards of the poorest can we check population growth. This is the paradoxical answer that Hans Rosling unveils at TED@Cannes using colorful new data display technology (you'll see).
