Florida decrease in population a good thing or bad?

In my humble opinion this could be, in the long run, the best thing that has happened to our state in decades.  The reality is that no society can live on growth forever.  it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that we live with limited resources.  Food, energy, water, all are limited.  We have been living beyond our means for half a century now.  It is time for Florida, the US, and the world to stop counting on growth to pay for everything and for everyone to realize that there is a certain population that is sustainable.  We passed that level a very long time ago and the continuing degradation of our environment is the result.

For Florida, 'end of an era' of population growth - USATODAY.com
Last month came the most jaw-dropping announcement of all: The state that made population growth the linchpin of its economy for more than 60 years lost a net 58,000 people this year, according to newly released estimates for April 1.

"It's the end of an era," says Robert Lang, director of the Metropolitan Institute at Virginia Tech. "Florida represents an entire postwar vision of the good life — palm trees, low cost and no taxes, just easy living. They could turn it around, but in the short haul, it's paradise lost."
