According to that ever-useful global political body, the U.N.:
If fertility rates remained unchanged from the 2000 rate of 2.83, there would be 134 trillion people in 2300, impossible to sustain.     - CNN
Yes, you read that right, if we keep having babies like we have been lately, the world population will be over 22,000 times what it is today. Say hello to moon colonies, underwater cities, and Soylent™! Actually, that doesn't sound so bad. I've always wanted to visit a moon colony, or an underwater city. And as long as you stay away from the green variety, I think Soylent could probably be pretty tasty.

But I digress. Unless the sound of bunking up in a 100 square foot flat with about two dozen of your closest friends sounds pretty good to you, I recommend that you stop having so many babies. Learn to control yourself. Seriously.
