What do you think is the biggest issue in Asia and how to deal with it?
Yes, yes. I would say overpopulation is a really important reason leading to many problems in Asia. Firstly, we have to mention pollution and poverty like you said. Next, i would say depletion of natural resources and lack of education, and so on. Many problems are caused, since demand is much bigger than supply. I think the reason leading to overpopulation lies in Asia's culture. They prefer collectivism. They want their family to have as many members, and they believe that indicates the prosperity of their family. Another thing is gender discrimination. They prefer boy to girl. Many couple will keep having baby until they have a boy to keep their family name. Low quality of education worsens that bias as well. So I think one good way to deal with this is through education, even though it will take a long long time.

What do you think is the biggest issue in Asia and how to deal with it?
I totally agree that over fishing and hunting are big problems in Asia. I believe the governments are well aware of these, but they cannot find an effective way to prohibit their resident from over hunting and fishing. It is hard to change their culture, since it has been there for so long. Many of them believe that parts of the animal can be used to make medicine (even though not scientifically proved) or merely as a sign to indicate wealth. For example, they think the horn of the rhino can be used to treat many kinds of illness, or having that horn inside the house is a luck. These reasons make the horn valuable, and many people hunt rhino to sell for a good price. I agree with you that the government must be stricter in this issue to prevent many animal from being distinct. Do you think there is another way to do that, because i think changing culture is technically impossible?
