Depopulation is straight up murder, and anyone who supports it is a genocidal eugenicist.

woah woah woah over populated??
I have driven across texas many times and there is TONS of free range there. No one to be seen. On some stretches maybe a town with a gas station and a handful of people.
That brings up a good point, I remember seeing somewhere that Jim Marrs had said there was enough room in Texas alone to fit the population of the U.S. I will try to find some links but I can't seem to remember where I have heard it from. Has anyone else heard this?
There are 171,904,640 acres in Texas. With the Earth's population at almost seven billion, you would have 41 people to the acre density in Texas. Thus each person could have 1,048 square feet of land, if we brought all the population of the world to Texas.

You are most welcome.
You also have such places as Wyoming and Montana and others with very few people.
The world is not overpopulated.
The fact that some go hungry in the world is a fault of distribution not overpopulation.

I usually agree with you, but that was a little over the top, and certainly more sensationalist than I'm used to seeing in your posts.

The world is overpopulated in certain regions, ie big city centres with rivers and sources of water.... people don't all want to live in texas....
Advantages of Vertical Farming
Year-round crop production; 1 indoor acre is equivalent to 4-6 outdoor acres or more, depending upon the crop (e.g., strawberries: 1 indoor acre = 30 outdoor acres)
No weather-related crop failures due to droughts, floods, pests
All VF food is grown organically: no herbicides, pesticides, or fertilizers
VF virtually eliminates agricultural runoff by recycling black water
VF returns farmland to nature, restoring ecosystem functions and services
VF greatly reduces the incidence of many infectious diseases that are acquired at the agricultural interface
VF converts black and gray water into potable water by collecting the water of evapotranspiration
VF adds energy back to the grid via methane generation from composting non-edible parts of plants and animals VF dramatically reduces fossil fuel use (no tractors, plows, shipping.)
VF converts abandoned urban properties into food production centers
VF creates sustainable environments for urban centers
VF creates new employment opportunities
We cannot go to the moon, Mars, or beyond without first learning to farm indoors on earth
VF may prove to be useful for integrating into refugee camps
VF offers the promise of measurable economic improvement for tropical and subtropical LDCs. If this should prove to be the case, then VF may be a catalyst in helping to reduce or even reverse the population growth of LDCs as they adopt urban agriculture as a strategy for sustainable food production.
VF could reduce the incidence of armed conflict over natural resources, such as water and land for agriculture
