Up until fairly recently, the majority of the population was in third world countries, but the majority of pollution and consumption came from first world countries. I think that is beginning to shift with demographic changes and changes to international consumer power.
Ok. So when you spoke of 'overpopulation' in your first post, you were referring to third world countries then?
