Worry about overpopulation of humans, not cats [Letter]

Kudos to Becky Robinson of Alley Cat Allies for writing about the Anne Arundel County's lethal policy toward community cats ("Anne Arundel's cruel cat policy," Sept. 5). However, why do we expect humans to do anything so kind as to spay, neuter and release cats when we can't control ourselves?

In 1900, the human population was 1.5 billion. In 2000, it was 6.5 billion. We added 5 billion of ourselves to the planet in 100 years. Everyone thinks that this was wise and that there are plenty more resources to go around?

California is now going to start building desalinization plants using ocean water for drinking water and crops and, of course, the politicians and "experts" are going to tell us this won't continue to destabilize our environment or effect the oceans in any way.

Are we going to start killing ourselves? Since when did Planned Parenthood get moved to the back burner?
