Too many mouths to feed

Published: Friday, Apr. 4, 2014 - 8:03 am

Re "Why must this misery continue?" (Forum, March 30): This tragic story begins with the statement that there are enough resources in the world for everyone. This may be true, more or less, but a subsequent Bee article about an intergovernmental panel report on climate change suggests food scarcity will likely worsen due to climate change.

The underlying theme of this story on world poverty is babies having babies. There will be no end to this misery unless the high birthrates in these countries is addressed.
