Which is the real problem: Overconsumption or overpopulation?

I would say that overpopulation is, because if it wasn;t for overpopulation then overconsumption wouldn't be a problem. If the population was halved then the amount of agricultural land/individal would double. The average amount of each fossil fuel per person would double. Also you have to remember that countries like Japan and England only produce about 60% of the food that they consume, so if the population in both these countries was halved then they would both be self sufficient with regards to food at least.

Overpopulation is worse by far than over-consumption.  People are living longer and having more children a lot longer in life.
