quote: If you take ever single person on the Earth right now, give them a 3,000 square foot house to live in, you can place all those houses side by side and fit them all on the land mass of Greenland. That leaves the entire rest of the Earth to use to grow food to feed those people.
quote: To triple the population you have to have every male/female pair produce six children, but at the end of each generation you will also lose an equivalent number of people so you must sustain that birth rate to sustain the growth
quote: Think of it, if two million people(50% male/50%female)produce 6 million children you have 8 million people until the first generation dies then you are back down to 4 million, but the second generation has 18 million children but when they die you must subtract 6 million leaving only 12 million, so at the third generation you have only had a 4x growth in population.
quote: Since three generations is usually equal to 60 years then to quadruple the Earths population you have to have ever couple produce six children for at least 40 of those years
quote: There is no amount of money that wouldn't be worth it long term.
