I've invented a machine that eats greenhouse gases but it runs on gallons of human blood at a time.

Any volunteers?


Yep. I heard the volunteers can be found at 35° 41′ 31″ N, 51° 23′ 55″ E. Start there.

The recently passed Hans Rosling was the pre-eminent population statistician for the UN.

See his


"Why world population will never exceed 11 billon."


Carrying capacity is not a static number; it is always changing. And for humans it changes by technology. There is no magic number that equals too many people. Our carrying capacity is elastic...

What changes, as Rosling points out here, is when mothers feel their children are safe, they increase time between pregnancies, and then lower the total number of pregnancies. It's a survival mechanism, and will enable them to survive the population explosion.

Isn't Bernie Sanders irrelevant at this point?
