Thanks to Dave Gardner for sharing his PSA calling for population decline. He has submitted it to ABC News for their program, Earth 2100. Here are the pertinent links:

The website for the ABC News special, Earth 2100: www.earth2100.tv I recommend playing all of the trailers. The network’s description of the program includes: The world’s brightest minds agree that the “perfect storm” of population growth, resource depletion and climate change could converge with catastrophic results.
Best wishes for the New Year,
