Why Is Population Growth Seldom Discussed? [View all]

When the first baby was born today, the world population stood at about 7.2 billion, according to this.
http://www.usnews.com/opinion/blogs/robert-schlesinger/2014/12/31/us-population-2015-320-million-and-world-population-72-billion
So many important issues are discussed on DU, but I seldom see anything about world population.
Environment--Increased food supply comes with a price--GMO's, energy, agricultural chemicals, water depletion.
Energy needs--fracking, nuclear waste, etc.
Wars--Many of the wars that we see come about over limited resources--water, oil, land.
People are praising the Pope for his new attitudes, but I don't see anything about a change in birth control rules
Infrastructure-transportation, river pollution.
I could go on, but you know about this.
These issues are interrelated. Mother Earth can only hold so many.
