calm down, i get it.

just understand that if your tsundere attitude at me again you will regret it.

be honest.

and admit that the worlds population wont fit in texas.


here is no over population issue, every person in the world could live comfortably in the state of Texas. I'm not kidding, don't even try responding to this without doing your research first, please, even a theory based largely on nothing would suffice, but just don't think and s*** out an answer, because I will probably clown your argument in a second if you tried.

Ohhh, I see. If you simply google "square feet in texas" you get this drivel:

http://www.citizenreviewonline.org/Population.htm

When people are talking about overpopulation on the planet, they aren't simply talking about livable space. They're taking into account the most important variables like food and other precious resources. It's a shame we can't all thrive simply by standing around on 1,000+ square feet of land. I mean, if we all regressed to a simpler lifestyle, eating only what we needed, farming for our own food, using no fuel or electricity to prevent further pollution, then sure, this might work out. We'd probably have to stop exporting or importing as we wouldn't be farming / producing goods outside of necessity, so our global trade and economy would completely destabilize and the modern world as we know it would cease to exist. Let's try to get the other seven billion people on board with this. On a side note, the average house is 2,000+ square feet.

My cousin has a degree in marine biology, aquaculture and such. It seemed pretty interesting and perhaps a worthy career path for some of you to consider, if you're still young. Seems like better exploiting the ocean is perhaps in our cards for the future on Earth.

I mean, there's plenty of the world besides Texas for us.

I would like to quote a wise man: "Human beings are a disease. A cancer of this planet".

Overpopulation right now is a myth, we can fit everyone comfortably in Texas if we wanted to.

The problem is borders, our current use of finite resources (oil, coal, natural gas), unequal spread of wealth, and waste. Waste is our biggest issue since it doesn't seem to be improving, compared to our use of non-renewable resources. America alone throws away half of the food we produce every year, that's $165 billion dollars worth of food that can feed every developing nation twice over.

Our planet can support much more than 7 billion, but only if we go about it the right way.

yes and no.
and jobs would be exploded atleast when you also think how long shall thing last..
as much is quite litterly "gone" but if you want a fantasy then yeah take all of them in there, build 5 or more floors and 5x bigger roads and busses XP
Your grammar is broken, not saying that as an insult, but its difficult for me to understand what you're trying to convey.

My statement about fitting everyone in Texas was just a figure of speech, I didn't mean we should but that we could without issue.

North America and Europe are not overpopulated and produce far more food than they need, not sure about South America though.

Asia and Africa are the problem. If it weren't for them the Earth would not be over populated and we would be fine.



^ Btw this is a projection but the best relevant image I could find. The general idea holds true today.

We need an epidemic of a disease that only kills stupid people. Someone should really start working on that

What I expect to happen is the rich will hoard the food and starve the competition to speed up the process, then the only people left will be too selfish to try to rebuild civilisation.

Or we live in boats and occasionally get hunted by hungry orcas and keep the numbers down that way.

With the overpopulation issue i think that the earth itself will solve it. Give it time, it will come up with a new plague or we ourselves will solve the issue with another world war.
