This episode was inspired by something my wife showed me from a campaign called "One Planet One Child."

From Thomas Malthus in the 1790's to Paul Ehrlich in the 1960's and beyond, some economists and scientists have feared the doom of humanity. This doom is mass suffering and starvation of millions of people ever at the door.

The cause? Overpopulation.

We look at Paul Ehrlich's predictions in the 1960's through the 1980's to see if they came to pass. You could probably look around you to figure it out.

But is an overpopulation problem still on the horizon? What does the Bible say?
