Hence the machine guns and wood chippers on the border. Kids that never should have been born, and adults, too.
The big problem is that they tend to become high emissions in lifestyle, in addition to all the trash and graffiti.
Of course, the long term overpopulation will lead to a crash, inevitably, before mid-century. Far too late to reduce emissions the NECESSARY 90+%.
Cascadia, or LaPalma, or Katla are all due and could induce an early crash. So would Yellowstone, along with the needed minimum 7 1/2 year or more global volcanic winter for a "Toba-like" bottleneck and return to late interglacial cycle.
Hopefully, underground stocked fortresses will have only the strongest, best looking and smartest along with the realization it was greed that started it.

In environmentalism, we find so many who are wuss save the whale or something types, who go a little green and think they are clean when they are filthy.
Climate change's health toll: 'We can save millions of lives, even now'

"While the effects of climate change on the environment are gaining wide attention, there's a lack of awareness about the impact on human health. The WHO's Diarmid Campbell-Lendrum tells DW how both can be adressed.

DW: How much of a threat is climate change to human health?

As the earth warms, it makes it easier to transmit diseases in many parts of the world - diseases like malaria, which kills around 600,000 people every year, or diarrheal disease, including cholera and other forms of diarrhea, which also kills almost 600,000 just children every year, particularly in developing countries. And as we get more frequent precipitation, perhaps more frequent flooding and drought, it makes it harder to supply safe water sanitation services to populations.

We are also going to get more frequent and severe heat waves, particularly in the cities. And we know that heat waves can kill thousands of people, even tens of thousands of people: The record heat wave that occurred in Europe in 2003 was responsible for about 70,000 deaths. The more that we let climate change progress, the more that we find that parts of the world are unfit for safe human habitation."

When the Earth is about 8 times the long term sustainable population, and with pollution and depletion rates 100 to 1000 times regeneration rates, it doesn't help to save people. All it does is make it worse. :x
