The world is not overpopulated. Take every human that is on the entire planet, and put them shoulder to shoulder. It wouldn't even be a speck on the
Mismanagement of resources is the reason for people starving, not overpopulation.
You want proof your theory is flawed? People have ALWAYS starved. When there was only 1 million people on the face of the earth, people STILL starved
You reduce the population to half a billion, people will STILL starve. There is absolutely no truth, whatsoever to the false idea that the earth is
It is IMPOSSIBLE to over populate the planet. You know why? Because, people will only live if they have food, water, and air. Obviously there is
enough of all 3 for 7 billion people, or else THERE WOULD NOT BE 7 BILLION PEOPLE. Get it? It takes roughly 5 minutes to die without air, 3-4 days to
die without water, and roughly a month. to die without food.
If, as you say, the earth is overpopulated (meaning, not enough resources to support the current population) then within a few months the earth's
population should start dropping. Do you think that will happen? No. Then you are wrong. The earth is not overpopulated.
Once the population gets so large that there is no longer a way to support it, IT WILL STOP GROWING.
Does this not seem obvious to you? You say population started booming because the industrial revolution made more resources for people. So, you admit
that the population is limited by available resources. The population CAN NOT be growing right now if we don't have enough resources. It is growing,
so in fact the world is not overpopulated.
And to say the current population grows isn't natural is just silly. Do you understand the concept of exponential growth? Google it, you might learn
