I'm not sure if anyone has posted this yet, but all the information you need to know about the "overpopulation" conspiracy is right here:
Overpopulation is a lie invented by Thomas Malthus back in the late 18th century when the global population was under 1 billion people. It was an
eugenics ideology he spread to get rid of so-called "undesirables", like the poor, those of other ethnic groups, the diseased, those with mental
illness, etc. In other words, overpopulation is the lie of bigots who should be subjected to the treatments they would show others, i.e. starvation,
holding back of cures to illness and disease, sterilization, etc.
There is no food shortage, but an unequal distribution of food and other resources. The US grows most of the world's food, but we also "consume"
about 50% of it, too. The reason consume is in quotation marks is because a good amount of that food is not actually eaten, it's wasted. Rich
countries like the US and Britain throw away 1/2 of the food we have because we let it go to waste sitting on store shelves. The reasons countries
like India and those in Africa are "scrambling" for resources is because they have governments who take food away from their citizens to feed the
wealthy. In India, because of their caste system, the poor don't get food because they're so low on the scale. The rich won't go near them, not to
help in any way. Anyone who does gets to starve to death, as well. They're called "untouchable" for a reason: they believe that if you touch them,
you catch some sort of "poor disease" or some crud like that. In Africa, Joseph Kony and his mooks steal food and resources from villages so that
they can use it to feed themselves so they can keep their power, as well as take down any other areas they decide they want to conquer. In other
words, the lack of food and resources is due to severe unequal distribution due to politics and cultural bigotry.
We don't need so much farmland anymore, as we've recently found how to grow food in multi-level warehouses with minimal water usage. It's called
urban farming, and it uses hydroponics and/or aeroponics. Also, barren land can be made farmable again, like it was in the Cerrado (Brazil) and
Vanashree (Bangalore) by introducing vitamins to the soil, researching local flora, and introducing foods that can be grown in that climate and soil
content. It takes a little work, but it can
According to the U.N. Populations Division's low variant prediction, which has shown to be correct time and time again, global population will peak
at 8 billion around 2045, and then fall from there. Unless Torchwood: Miracle Day
happens to come true (by some freak coincidence), we won't
