  1. Mr. Gladstone is doing a great service to the humanity, democracy and human rights by focusing on population explosion and demography, which are virtually a taboo in Indian public discourse at present. The world needs more Gladstones. I feel inspired by Prof. Gladstone’s work as I am myself advocate population control as the key to sustainable development and prevention of transformation of a democracy into anarchy. I wish Indian Parliament implements the Agenda for India that it unanimously approved in 1996 and that has forthrightly dealt with the issue of population explosion- n. minocha (nareshminocha.com) an Indian journalist.

    Ladies and Gentlemen,

    Scientists warn of a rapid collapse of the Earth’s ecosystem.
    The ecological balance is under threat: climate change, population growth and environmental degradation could lead even in this century an irreversible collapse of the global ecosystem.

    The cardinal reason is the sudden development of human population that threatens to devour all our resources.

    Since 21 August there is therefore a petition at change.org for the introduction of global birth-controls, also in HINDI!

    If you want to support this or publish it on your website, here is the link:

    Please continue to spread the link or the petition as possible to all interested people, organisations etc.

    Thank you and best regards
    Achim Wolf, Germany
