I'm not entirely sure that population explosion is a lie. Look at the forrests that are burned to farm beef in So. America, rainforrests that are
being lost in Africa. This is the current population using-up areas that are very hard to re-grow.
Food-wise, we do have enough food for now, but give food over to Monsanto or large corporations where you have to buy from them and the crop seeds
cannot be saved for the next year and you have even bigger problems.
I have lived in a 3 billion person earth (1964) and 6.7 billion person earth now. Both seem to work but both have their problems. The best way to
control population is to limit births to 2 per couple. Not kill off existing people but stop future population that is not yet here. China is high
populated and still have a 1 child per couple limit - couple's 2nd children and beyond are just not documented or put up for adoption by overseas
I've visited Hong Kong - very populated, NYC - very populated. I've also flown across the USA and of course to Hong Kong over vast, barren lands or
huge farmlands. We have room for people but the resources used per-person is high. If we lived conservatively, used fewer "things" and got along
well, we could easily sustain 10-billion on this planet. I bet this will happen in this century - but at some point it will snap and the idiots
running things will throw down a big war and end up dropping a sizeable population quantity - just like WWII. That will be a sad time.
In my family - I have two children. Perfect size family, just enough for my resources available. For those families who have 6 children on
low-income - this is where education is needed to help them see that this is not a great idea.
