They already have. 

They already have.  Starvation and lack of shelter is a good start.  Every 10 seconds someone on the planet dies of starvation. 6 people a minute.  360 people an hour.  The next time I spend an hour feeding my face at lunch time I'm going to think about that.

Yes, telliottmbamsc, but not

Yes, telliottmbamsc, but not just in the U.S. Unchecked population growth everywhere may - almost surely will - kill the planet. I've thought that cash payments for vascetomies worldwide (but particularly in those countries with inordinately high birth rates) would be a good start. In the U.S. a sensible policy would tax parents heavily for having children. That policy would include an escalating tax penalty for each additional child. Such a policy would be far more sensible than the present one of granting tax credit for children.
