Thing is: I simply do not know.
I personally have held off on conceiving due to my concerns of being able to give a child the life they deserve. I am not sure if the world provides a soft and safe place for any new soul.
My mind may change.
There needs to be a great revolution in how we think and live in this world before it can sustain a population greater than 7 billion. Everything is unstable right now,
Time will tell...

In history a great time of population expansion and prosperity is followed by war and food crisis to lower the population again and keep it in control.
We humans distorted this balance so yes, earth is becoming overpopulated.

the baby was awarded with cash, scholarships, some plans, I think life plan i'm not entirely sure and many more. I watched it in TV and was quite happy to see the relief in the faces of the parents of the baby. At least they won't have to think about paying the hospital bills anymore. 7 billion people is a huge number in terms of people. I bet for the next 5 years 300-500million more people will occupy earth. I believe that there is adequate space in the world, that is if we start living afloat in the air, in deserts and even underwater if we are capable. 7 billion is a really big number in terms of population. Squatter areas are already in the boom and with the constant increase in population, governments and the people really have to think for themselves looking on how it would affect them in the long run. More people, more mouths to feed, more pollution, and also considering the ever so yo-yoing of the economy.

The problem is what to do. When the problem is too many people there is no answer I really like the taste of. Well I take that back. There is always space. I do like that idea. I don't know if it could work. The way things are now, it seems like kind of a stretch we'd ever be able to work together like that.
I wonder about education, I don't think it would work to educate people about the problem. Making babies is more or less genetic prerogative so educating people past that may be a bit of a push. What to do what to do.

Yes, I think we're overpopulated.

Yet in another sense, the world has gradually been adapting to increasing population. When I say adapting I do not wish to imply that there have not been problems associated with population growth. Nor do I wish to underplay the greater problems looming ahead. But it can't be denied that even Malthus could not have imagined a population of seven billion. But it is a reality. Somehow or the other we've reached this number, and for better or for worse, we are surviving.
With projections of double this population in less than a century from now, it may be said that the world is not over populated. Not just yet. Not to the point of total disaster. Whether it will reach that stage is another question. But right this moment, we are still on this side of an emergency.

Perhaps that is part of the problem. The obsession with accumulation of things has exacerbated the poor usage of our resources. I do not think we are overpopulated, but governments have done a bad job managing our resources allowing dollars to make decisions.

Number one issue.
