12. Both issues are important, but, ...

population will need to be reduced regardless. Reduction of population to sustainable levels might not be problematic after the reduction if institutions reorganize so constant growth is not a necessity. However, requirements of a surviving population after a reduction, will require a living environment that a resulting civilization can depend upon for agriculture and limited commerce. If AGW produces 6*C rise of global mean temperature within a century, no such environment will exist. Few scientists believe these levels are survivable for long.

On this basis, for me, the AGW is far more important that overpopulation. One has an avenue to correction, the other, maybe not.
