From what I understand, all of the current Earth's population can live comfortably on a 1/4 acre of land in Australia, and the territory/state of Queensland would still be 1/2 open/free. As for the rest of the world, it would be desolate of people. In my opinion, we just need to take better care of our surroundings (i.e. litter control, recycling, and whatnot). I don't know about you but a 1/4 acre isn't really huge, but it is big enough to build a small house, have a small yard, and a tree swing (hehe).
