"Overpopulation! Overpopulation!"

We are constantly told of how sad it is that people are dying of starvation in Third World nations–it is.
We are also told of how this is due to “overpopulation.”
According to an article on Yahoo! Green, however, Americans throw away 25% of the food they purchase.

When Grandma and your elementary school teacher said, “Think of the starving children in Ethiopia,” they had a point.
However, my usual response to that comment also applies: “Why do you serve us kids more food than we can eat? Give them the food.”
