Australian offers million dollar reward for solution to population control
Australian businessman Dick Smith is offering a million dollars to a young Australian who can come up with a solution to bring the country's population under control.
He's launched the Wilberforce award in Sydney arguing that Australia's population doubles every thirty years and that growth is not sustainable.
Mr Smith says he 's not confident the major political parties have the answers to population growth , but a young Australian might have the solution.
"Well I suppose I'm looking for something like a modern Bob Geldof or a Gandhi or a someone who's going to become famous around the world in communicating the basic fact that you can't always have exponential growth and the of resources in a finite world."
