A country like India manages to feed and clothe its whole population (though meagrely) with its own resources, with virtually no help from the developed world. The developed world consumes far more natural resources and pollutes the environment to a much greater degree than the populous developing world. So how are we a great drain on the world's resources?
If Professor Calne is genuinely concerned, maybe he could influence the politicians of the developed world to supplement the excellent work being done for population control in many parts of the developing world, through education and better child care.
