The World Overpopulation Myth

NM 156 4,761 197 January 20, 2013 at 08:28 PM


Is the World Over Populated?

No. Overpopulation is a Myth. The world is not over populated. New York City has a population density of approximately 27,500 people per square mile. Everybody on earth (7 billion people) could fit in the state of Texas at a density of approximately 26,500 people per square mile (that's a population density 1,000 less than New York City).

There are over 57 million square miles of land mass on earth. There is plenty of room and there are more than enough resources for the development of life. The world is not over populated, it's very poorly managed. The concentration of wealth is handled by a small elite network. Man is always finding innovative new ways to utilize resources and solve problems. When new innovative techniques don't compliment the New World Order agenda, they get suppressed.

The only problem is that people around the world dont want to live in cities so they go out and buy land on what were formerly farms. And they dont farm either. So now we have more land devoted to houses, and less farmland devoted for food production.

Thats the main problem. I dont think we've overpopulated yet, and nature will probably find a way to slow our growth and/or kill off a bunch of people if we do get too large.

The problem is that it takes thousands and thousands of acres of farmland to feed NYC.

The leather, cotton, stone, steel and concrete is all produced somewhere else, all in places with far less population density.

Effects of Overpopulation.

Quote :
Overpopulation: Environmental and Social problems

Human population is growing like never before. We are now adding one billion people to the planet every 12 years. That's about 220,000 per day.

The list of problems this is causing, or at least complicating, is a long one. It includes shortages of all our resources, war and social conflict, limits on personal freedom, overcrowding and the health and survival of other species.

The key word was "managed". Not that I am advocating this, but one could cram population in a small area so long as the remaining land is managed to maximize production. That means that areas fertile for certain crops (or production in general, like mining) are dedicated to those ends, nothing else.

Yeah, no need to worry about scarcity of resources or manufacturing of goods; those kinds of problems are just conspiracies too. People don't need to eat either - that's just a giant conspiracy created by Kraft, Kellogs and General Mills to sell more of their product.

So you're going to grow crops in the Sahara desert, the Outback, or the upper mountains of Nepal and Mongolia? laugh out loud

I don't know if the world is over populated yet or not but I'd say that it's getting close to it. As it is today we're being fed genetically engineered crops (that do who knows what to us, if anything), cloned fish/meat (that again do who knows what to us, if anything). Water is a resource required to grow food and many areas are running out. Even the fertile midwest regions are running out of water. You can only suck water out of a well for so long before that water is gone. Then get it from where??

How exactly are you going to transport the food to this New Texas you speak of? So now we get to have fleets of aircraft and ships transferring food all to one area. Talk about inefficient logistics.

Lastly, you speak of this small elite network but where you utterly fail is that the small elite network is in it to make money. They make $ of off what you ask? US! The more of us there are the more they can make. The more of us in a confined space there are the more they would make as well. It's long been known that more people in an area leads to more health issues so it would actually be in their best interest to over populate the world in a confined space so they can supply the medicines and treatments.

There really should be a test people are forced to take before they can post something on the internet. hug

What inefficient logistics?... NYC is already at 27,500 per square mile... They seem to get food and supplies just fine...

You're somewhere between stage 1 and 2...

I'm not sure why you would think land area is the limiting factor for a sustainable population.

And their food is made what area?



And where exactly is the definition of overpopulation based solely upon population density? Don't you think it also based upon the availability of resources?

Of course they do, duh.

So you think that if all the worlds population is in one state that it would be a good idea to ship food halfway around the world to feed them? Sure today that happens somewhat but nowhere near that scale. Hahahaha. Apparently someone hasn't heard of the whole buy locally campaign.
