Oh my goodness. Can't pull one over on you can I. My point being though that one isolated 'branch' of science cannot be used to justify a complete understanding of the larger scientific picture. In this case, the statistics presented by that UN report do not present the full picture of human habitation, just an isolated statistic used to further a specific argument.

To examine solutions, we need to have all the variables of a problem - including statistical analysis.

But more to the point: I believe the answer is off-planet colonisation, and, here on Earth, is vertical growth. Vertical farming, tower housing - anything to take less horizontal space. Which will lead to more space for reforestation, thus absorbtion of CO2.
Additionally, turning to green energy needs to be done, like, NOW - I know Big Oil corps are dominating the market but we really need to stop burning fossile fuel, right now.

These 'fact's are not scientific. They are only statistical


Statistic is a branch of Science, genius.

I'M greedy? You're off your rocker.

You misunderstood - I was saying "stop being greedy" not to you personally; I was saying it to the whole of Mankind, with special sustained glances at the big corporations part of it.
