The denser the population the faster a disease can spread... I'm so happy I was born in a time when we still have clean water, air and forests.
I don't think I'm gonna make a child, I'll be too sorry for him.

the size of the dry land is 31,419,990,675km2 (31 billion)People ever lived in the world 107,602,707,791 (108 Billion persons)it gives 0,280 km2 per person and more than alf km2 per couple. So if we all still lived in the same time there were enought space for every one of us, in the planet. we are not to mutch, we are just simply to close to each other.

It didnt really explain anything though did it? "1 day there was 1 billion people, not theres 7 billion"

So "7 billion: how did we get so big so fast?" The discovery of oil

Interesting, North America is the smallest of all.
We are a small country, Hungary, with 10 million people and declining. In our thousand year history of our state and kingdom, we've not reached more than 20m (except when we were an Empire, 'twas 53m.)
How on Earth could we, for example, compete with India and China in any sector of the economy with 1-1 billion each? They can produce everything much cheaper, half the products on the shelves etc are from there and the trend is only growing.
If food was forced to be local, every nation would have to take better care of their resources...

Now so much food is exported to China and Japan that it's a major export source for the USA (they feed them) but it can only support so much..

The other sad thing is that the portion of POOR people is huge in those areas, so while they suffer, the world has to feed them and it doesn't make any sense. I'm not cruel, but at least they should have good lives like us...

#5 It has never been about space. It's about resources, pollution, our capacity to consume.

And that's why they use millions and millions dollars exploring the space instead of helping people in africa.

It's not our problem, just push it onto next generation. That's how humans work.

#11 It will sooner or later be about space also... Look how much we destroy forests just to build new homes, cities and other buildings..
One thing is for sure, we ARE and WILL be extinct in a matter of time thanks to the way we live.
