Man Should Not Be Blamed for Climate Change

Climate change has been bothering politicians and scientists for the better part of the last few decades. However, should all the blame be pushed to Man only? The main cause of climate change is largely attributed to the fact that mankind has been using too much of the Earth's resources, and like all things, these resources are limited. As of 2012, the total human population is 7 billion. From 1999's total of 6 billion as compared to 1804's 1 billion to 1927's 2 billion, the growth of the population is growing rapidly fast. So fast, that the Earth may not be able to handle the growth. As the population grows, the demand for everything rises, including Earth's finite resources. So is this rapid growth Man's fault? Everything has an "expiry date", and when the time comes for Man to be wiped from the face of Earth, who are we to say no?
