This may come across as a bit random but I do think it’s appropriate to share the following considering all the “overpopulation” scare in many places, especially in college classrooms.
A lot of people want to paint the picture that 6 billion people on earth is overpopulation…
The world being overpopulated could not be further from the truth. That is absurdity.
We could actually put all the people in the world in Texas and still have more space to move around than there is right now in Brooklyn, NY. Yes, it would be crowded but still livable.
Of course some cities in itself are overpopulated and crowded itself (like Houston, NY, Beijing, etc), but this doesn’t mean the world as a whole is overpopulated. That’s ridiculous.
Let’s do the math.
There’s about 6 billion people in the world and Texas has 268,000 square miles. That’s 23,000 people per sq mile.
There’s 2.5 million people in Brooklyn that is 89 sq miles. That’s 28,000 people per sq mile.
Of course lakes, bayous, etc have to be factored in (so maybe we would have to use a little more than Texas) but we all get the point.
So please, do not get caught up in this hoopla. It’s really sad and pathetic people want to push this issue which is a non-issue. I am not sure of the “reasoning” and agenda behind these lies, but be careful and check sources.
And yes, it’s okay – have another baby. The world is not going to blow up because of it.
