How many people do you think are in the world? I think we're pushing 4 billion now.

What about America? 300 million, or so.

How many people are too many? There already are too many. But we still can feed them all.

Have you seen any signs of overpopulation? The Front Range is certainly overpopulated.

Is China's one-child rule a good idea? It may be a good idea, but who decides? That's the hard part.

How many kids do you have? None.

How many kids do you want? Two.

How many people do you think are in the world? Five billion.

What about America? I'd guess close to a billion.

How many people are too many? More than can be adequately sustained.

Have you seen any signs of overpopulation? I guess there are signs, yeah. Depending on your location. People not being able to get enough to eat ...

Is China's one-child rule a good idea? I think by choice, but I don't think you could enforce it.

How many kids do you have? None.

How many kids do you want? Maybe one. A dog is good for now.

How many people do you think are in the world? Eight billion, maybe.

What about America? 250 million.

How many people are too many? I don't think there will ever be too many.

Have you seen any signs of overpopulation? Some of the big cities are pretty crowded, but overpopulation? No, not really.

Is China's one-child rule a good idea? No. I think you should be able to have as many children as you can take care of.

How many kids do you have? None yet. I do have a step-daughter.

How many kids do you want? Two, I think.
