How can the world population increase be handled?

    There a few approaches to treating overpopulation problems that appear with the growth of the world population. The idea of extraterrestrial settlements is, at the moment, still more in realm of science fiction than a reasonable possibility – NASA is planning a permanent settlement station on the Moon by 2024, however that’s still only in planning stages and will not be able to alleviate overpopulation at such a size.

    A more realistic approach has to do with limiting the growth of the population. That includes either strict measures like limiting the allowed number of children (such as in China) and more relaxed measures like education on family planning and birth control, and easy availability of the latter. At the very extreme is forced sterilization.
