there is plenty of room to depopulate cities by spreading the population more evenly across the planet. population density is the problem

So you want to implement a socialist/communist doctrine of forcing people to have a certain amount of kids? And exactly what is your evidence that the world is overpopulated and "we are a threat to the world"?... Why, because some leftwing source told you so?

How about this. instead of trying to sequester atmospheric CO2, which is proven to increase the productiona and harvest of ALL green biomass on Earth, how about we allow atmospheric CO2 to keep increasing, which in turn will make the Earth GREENER, like it has been doing for the last few decades?

How about we allow atmospheric CO2 to keep increasing, and instead try to stop the real toxins, and the REAL pollution?...

With more atmospheric CO2 than exists at present there will be MORE harvests WORLDWIDE and which can be used to FEED the world...

It is a known FACT that with atmospheric CO2 levels at 1,200-1,500 ppm ALL green biomass increases their growth and production from 25% -60%...


Successful indoor growers implement methods to increase CO2 concentrations in their enclosure. The typical outdoor air we breathe contains 0.03 - 0.045% (300 - 450 ppm) CO2. Research demonstrates that optimum growth and production for most plants occur between 1200 - 1500 ppm CO2. These optimum CO2 levels can boost plant metabolism, growth and yield by 25 - 60%.

Crazy idea huh?...

that's why we need to make it a global effort to eliminate the current energy paradigm and fully research zero point energy. it would be the answer to all our problems

This is the main thing right here. We are a social species so people tend to move towards the more populated areas (Use New York or LA as an example). We could spread the population so thin that you wouldnt see another person for hours or even days, but being the social species we are, most of us tend not to want to live in the woods by ourselves.

With that said, what troubles me the most about some of these posts is how quickly people are ready to jump on the bandwagon without looking at other solutions. Even if over population was a problem (which its not), there are other solutions to it such as colonising Mars, our Moon, or other near by planets. At some point this species needs to seriously consider the fact that this planet will not be here forever and that at any given moment our entire species could be wiped out instantly. The universe is a very hostile place and so to ensure our survival eventually (sooner rather than later) serious steps need to be taken. This may seem Sci-fi to some people, but it is indeed reality.

As to your mention of Ron Paul what people need to understand is that freedom and liberty is the sign of an intelligent civilisation. Tyranny however is the norm for our species and has been throughout our entire history. To those that cant seem to figure out why people like Ron Paul so much its because there is no alternative. He is founding father material. Not one other person on that stage will end these pointless, illegal and undeclared wars day one. Nobody else is going to secure our borders. And nobody else is going to move our country and this world back towards true freedom and liberty. I think though that most people honestly fear true freedom and liberty because with it comes great responsibility. There will be no bail outs for you or the banks. And I think thats what people fear the most. That you actually can fail without a Government to hand you everything.

We have two paths to choose. And for those who are into the Bible and the good books heres your sign. Tyranny or freedom. Hitler or Washington. Look around you at America. Look at the TSA sexually assaulting 85 year old women. Does that sound more like America or Nazi Germany to you? As much as you want to plug your ears and scream no, the reality is we're falling back into our old selves again. The tyrants want your life. They always have and always will. We as a species need to move beyond this or simply extinct ourselves because trust me world war 3 wont be fun.

Over population is not a problem nor will it ever be. The war mongers will see to that. However, as much as we spend on war, could be spent to bring water in to arid lands, which are all over the US, and other countries. Desalinization and pipes to pump water into the desert. What a great way to create jobs too. Another poster says it is the system that is the problem. True...Greed over shadows any positive plan, or idea or invention that could be good to solve our problems, so the system won't allow anything that is not profitable monetarily. Until we can dismiss with that paradigm, then most of our problems will not be solved. But if you think about it, we are the system, and can effect change.
No, I think this world was created for us, to sustain us. Not the other way around, and over population is not even an issue no matter how you look at it.

there could be all variations on how to thin the density. You can have smaller cities, villages all the way down to living in a self sustaining way in the wilderness. I'm sure there has to be some optimum size for a "city" to be self sustaining with near zero or zero impact on the environment. I see pollution and population density as going hand in hand as far as being very serious problems today. Any of the current cadre of political "leaders" will just plod us down the path to ruin. I see Paul as a potential saviour of sorts that is as long as they don't assassinate him. In that case all hope is lost. Appropriate that this election comes in 2012 don't you think?

Nail on its head. I love you... In a way... This is why I'm vegetarian. Not because I find it sad for the animals but because it's narcissistic and egoistic to believe you are a meat eater.

Should you discover there is gold under your backyard, would you complain about it that its too much of wealth, or will you try to find ways to tap such wealth? I am sure all do know what the answer will be.

Similarly too, with 7 billion people on Earth, fully capable of supporting tens of times that number. Human capital is resource for every nation. It's only how one plans to ensure everyone is provided for, with the bounties of our planet that had not run out of resources, nor humanity's ingenuity to improve upon learnt knowledge for advancement in all sectors.

We need not even look to the stars yet, for 70% of our planet's surface still remains UNDISCOVERED and UNTAPPED - our oceans. With our current technology, we can harvest such wealth from the seas and seabeds if we only try.

Africa alone has the resouces to provide for the world for millenia, but selfishly kept by a few corrupted leaders there, hurting and harming our fellow human brothers and sisters there. Education is the only answer for them, and UN had failed miserable to level up the education to that of the western world.

Instead of centralised planning of education for the precious young of africa, they are kept in unproductive farms separated from each other by hundreds of miles, making education difficult for the kids due to lack of transportation. As they do not improve, so too will their society be forever left behind, kept dumb and stupid by their corrupt leaders, and wasting further resources including human capital that could have helped it progress and evolve.

When you hear cries of 'over-population', you will only be hearing the failure and ineptitude of such persons making those cries, if not absolute unconscionable selfish intentions of hoarding and not sharing wealth.

All I can say is Al Gore sure did a good job at propaganda. Stop breathing too much CO2. Stop breeding, humans are a parasite. A bunch of lies couched in half digested truth made so many people believe.

Just yesterday I received an e-mail from the end poverty group started by Bono the lead singer. Guess what the e-mail said. Help the starving people, send a letter to the Climate conference to get the nations to agree. WTF?
Gore's fruits were bad, yet he hooks everyone into thinking they will save the world. One man or one groups agenda will NOT save the world. Do you think climate change causes poverty? Why was there so much poverty before the climate change agenda was set forth? I will no longer support them. Their agenda has been tainted by lies.

I say think for yourself, do what you can based on your OWN beliefs in your OWN cit, county, state, nation. We need a leader, but Gore and all his quack brained cronies are not the leaders we need. Believe nothing, question everything, follow your heart.

As far as the ones advocating population control, I say take your own medicine. It's easier to tell others what to do and then do the exact opposite yourself.

I agree that people are not using their brains when procreating. But controlling others is not the answer. Believe it or not there is unity in diversity.

Just a comment, but of all my friends, most all of them have had two children, and of that one third have had only one, only my sister has had five. I had two, and they might be likely to not have any, and I believe that is a concious effort.

5. You can put everyone in the wolrd in Austalia alone with room to spare.



Australia?? Try Jacksonville County Florida. Every person in the world could stand shoulder to shoulder with room to spare.


uhm simple math... Say each person takes up one square foot while standing.. (some people take up much more) that would be 7,000,000,000 sq. ft WAY more land than jacksonville county florida...

All the people in the world can fit inside the state of Texas, so where is this overpopulation???
what you have is megawealth dictating what should or should not be, i say liquidate these big mouths that control everything and let nature take its course as it has for millions of years.

The earth will never run out of natural gas, solar, tide,wind,hydraulic, magnetic, hydrogen,plant,or man power
Turn off the meter and quit enslaving the people, create more harmonic cities and cheaper more reliable transportation,refine industry to its safest standards, focus on education and teach the world conservation and employ the world to advance to the stars.

If everyone and everything was focused specifically around space technology and colonization instead of trinkets and leisure, the human species would have a future, as it stands it will become extinct due to its selfishness and greed, only through peace and a common goal will man survive

Jacksonville County, Florida is 885 square miles:

5,280 feet in a mile.

1 square mile is 27,878,400 square feet. (5,280 X 5,280)

so, using your "simple math" how many square feet is 885 square miles?

*I'll give you a hint: 750 square miles is 20,908,800,000 square feet.*

Texas is waaaaaaaaaaaay too big to prove the point we're making good Sir. In fact, using the state of Texas, we could fit the entire population of the world more than 50 times over!!!


But, why listen to me, I can't even do simple math?? (see above) lol

I am a tad saddened though that we stopped this thread dead in it's tracks weeks ago, I see it still has a tiny pulse though.

Silly NWO puppets.

The depopulation agenda - pretty much only aimed at the West and best compliance in the West. Compliance and stability is rewarded with....

Replacement by groups that do not adhere to population limiting and stabilization.

Yep. That's worked out well. Thanks. Lesson learned: compliance = replacement.
