How can we help mother Earth?
Reduce population levels by introducing a criteria for reproduction & a birth rate check system (see FIGU articles on overpopulation). Earth can support only around 529 million people and today we are 8 billion & rising.
Replace Nuclear Power Plants with Geothermal Power Plants that CAN provide for all our energy needs safely and cleanly (see Germany's investment in this).
Pressure energy companies, leaders & governments to develop 'alternative' technologies that have already been developed to replace outdated fossil fueled transportation systems (see PESWiki.com)

Professors and naturalists on the subject of overpopulation...

Sir David Attenborough OM CH CVO CBE FRS FZS FRA Naturalist, documentary filmmaker - "The human population can no longer be allowed to grow in the same old uncontrolled way. If we do not take charge of our population size, then nature will do it for us and it is the poor people of the world who will suffer most."

James Lovelock CH CBE FRS Ph.D - Originator of Gaia Theory - "Those who fail to see that population growth and climate change are two sides of the same coin are either ignorant or hiding from the truth. These two huge environmental problems are inseparable and to discuss one while ignoring the other is irrational."

Frank Ramsey Professor of Economics, University of Cambridge - "Population growth, poverty and degradation of local resources often fuel one another."

Professor Paul Ehrlich - Bing Professor of Population Studies, Stanford University - "Overdrafts on aquifers are one reason some of our geologist colleagues are convinced that water shortages will bring the human population explosion to a halt. There are substitutes for oil; there is no substitute for fresh water."

Emeritus Professor of University College, London - "Should we now explain to UK couples who plan a family that stopping at two children, or at least having one less than first intended, is the simplest and biggest contribution anyone can make to leaving a habitable planet for our grandchildren?"

Professor in Maternal and Child Health and the first and former (1992 - 2013) holder of the Fred H. Bixby Endowed Chair in Population and Family Planning of the School of Public Health, University of California - Berkeley - "Rapid population growth is at the center of many of the world's pressing environmental, economic and security problems"

Malcolm Potts MB, BChir, PhD, FRCOG, FREng - Emeritus Professor of Natural History, University of Edinburgh - "Looking across the world at present it is obvious to anybody with even slight biological knowledge that human numbers are out of balance."

Sir Crispin Tickell GCMG KCVO FZS - Former UK Permanent Representative on the UN Security Council - "Population was a big issue about 30 years ago, now it's not, but I suspect it will come back because it has to be discussed as one of the big environmental problems of our time, it's one animal species out of control, and the awful thing is that if we don't control it then Mother Nature will do it for us."

Dame Jane Goodall DBE Ph.D - UN Messenger of Peace - "It's our population growth that underlies just about every single one of the problems that we've inflicted on the planet. If there were just a few of us, then the nasty things we do wouldn't really matter and Mother Nature would take care of it — but there are so many of us."

Professor Norman Myers CMG Ph.D - Visiting Fellow, Green College, Oxford University, and at Universities of Harvard, Cornell, Stanford, California, Michigan and Texas - "Many children face a prospect of a world which has been devastated of its forest cover and lost many of its species. Would it not be worthwhile to reinforce that enormous investment in the future, that grand gesture of hope in the future by chipping in just a little bit more, that one penny per day for family planning facilities? To insure that our children inherit a world worth living in. A world where population growth has been slowed to zero, with equity and fairness for all citizens on this planet, and where our environments are safeguarded and restored."

Chris Packham - Naturalist, documentary filmmaker - "There's no point bleating about the future of pandas, polar bears and tigers when we're not addressing the factor putting more pressure on the ecosystem than any other — the size of the world's population."
