The problem isn't the numbers of people in total, as is shown here, the overall numbers could fit, if spead out properly, into just one country (not
using the OP's rhode island example, but the entire USA mainland)..there would probably be enough room to fit every person with a few acres each.
(maybe someone could crunch the numbers on that, to see how much space there would be in the US, for everyone in the world)
The overpopulation 'problem' is an invented one. I say invented, but it's really a case of overpopulation by design, with profit as the
Cities and large towns.
This is where the overpopulation problems lay. Not in rural areas, but in ultra-urban areas.
Too many people, squeezed into small boxes they euphermistically call 'homes', all connected to overworked and overburdened sewer systems,
electrical grids, water supplies and other utilities.
Yes, there is overppopulation in the cities...but not on the planet. When teleworking takes off, and reliable remote communications is put in place,
people will no longer be required to be all in the same area to do their work, apart from large scale manufacturing, most people, especially in
service sectors of business, can migrate back into the countrysides the burden will be lifted from cities.
