Overpopulation: Not a Problem Now and Never Will Be (Video)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Daily the mainstream media bombards us with news articles reinforcing the idea that humans are infesting the planet and overpopulating it like parasites sucking it dry of its resources.

These bureaucrats have managed to convinced millions of their scheme, when in fact, it’s all a part of their plan to shove the ‘mass death’ agenda down people’s throats all while claiming they are ‘saving the Earth!’ It’s absurd!

The truth is if all 6.9 billion of us stood shoulder to shoulder and gathered together in the same general location it would fill only the state of Los Angeles. Or if everyone in the world was given a small house and yard and were once again gathered together in the same general location, it would fill only the states of Texas, California, and New Mexico with room to spare. 

Don’t believe me? Let’s  do the math. Texas has 171 million acres, California has 101 million acres, and New Mexico has 77 million acres, which is a grand total of 349 million acres of land. We can safely assume most households house two persons, (usually it’s more, but we’ll stick with two) If each household was given 0.10 acre (or 20 people per acre because there are 2 persons per household; which leaves plenty of room for a house and land); then we would have the total number of occupants at 6,980,000,000 persons (349 million acres x 20 people per acre). Which is more than enough room to house our 6,900,000,000 population. Keep in mind this doesn’t even take into consideration people living in apartments. The demographics can change based on how people are concentrated. See the map below. 

Thomas Malthus’ Overpopulation Lie

Thomas Malthus, who is the originator of the overpopulation lie, was a British mathematician. His most studied work, “An Essay on the Principle of Population as it Affects the Future Improvements of Society, with Remarks on the Speculations of M. Godwin, M. Condorcet and Other Writers,” was first published around the late 1700′s. In it he stated, “Overpopulation would destroy the world unless war, famine, and disease rose to check human growth.”

He theorized that when population increased and food production increased only arithmetically, then food production would no longer be able to keep up with the populace. He then declared that the world would be out of food by the year 1890. Obviously he was dead wrong and yet we still see his principles applied today.

But how realistic is his belief that food would not keep up with demand? Consider this, it takes about 300 sq. meters to feed one person for a year. Since a kilometer is 1,000 meters, we could feed 3,333 people per sq. kilometer, but let’s use 3,000 people per sq. kilometer to make math easy.  Meaning it would take 2,333,333 sq. kilometers (or 3000 ÷ 7,000,000,000) to feed the entire population for a year.

The total farmland in the US is about 922,000,000 acres of land.  There are 247.1 acres per sq. kilometer, meaning there is a total of 3,731,282 sq. kilometers (or 922,000,000 ÷ 247.1) of farm land. That’s more than the 2,333,333 sq. kilometers needed to feed the entire population. In other words, the farmland in the US can fee us all!

So why does the Government Continue to Insist we are Overpopulated?

That’s simple….MONEY, MONEY, MONEY, MONEY, MONEY! Along with many major corporations, they seek any opportunity to be billionaires. But even worse,  these power elite –per the Georgia Guidestones– desire serious population reduction. Instead of the 6.9 billion population, they desire 500,000,000 people. Ultimately their end game is EUGENICS!

Al Gore, Bill Gates, Ted Turner, and others like them, are using their power, wealth, and influence to manipulate the masses. They believe they can decide who is worthy to live and die. Their eugenics agenda lives on, and the bought and controlled media continues to churn out propaganda telling us we have to die so that the Earth (and the elite) may live on. What a load of crap! 

In conclusion the world’s population is declining not increasing. As I see it fertility rates are rising, abortions are skyrocketing, contraception are in high demand, governments are limiting the number of children in China, we are eating sterilizing foods, and drinking fluoride water, which are all preventing us from any major population growth. Eventually we’ll enter a new paradigm in which the elderly outnumber the younger. In 30 years or so well see the full effect of what the power elite have in store for us.

      but it’s still alotta poop..

      It’s not the area required to hold this many people but the world resources is takes to support 6.9 billion….food, water, shelter etc…..

      • Amaterasu Solar

        The point here is that We have PLENTY of room for food and housing – statistically, Humans don’t exist on this planet. Water is vastly abundant and with free energy (it DOES exist; I have personal knowledge of this) added to Dean Kamen’s water purification device, water is no issue.

        Add free energy and We can also eliminate the need to exchange to survive, eliminating the profiteering that gives Us “planned obsolescence” and distributing food by profit and not need (We throw out enough to feed ALL of Us and have food left over!).

        Waste – which now is very high because of profiteering – will shrink to virtually nil.

        So… Yeah. This planet can support VASTLY higher numbers of Humans than are now present.

      You can put every person in the world standing up without touching one another (6.5 billion) in less than one half the area of Jacksonville, Florida. All the worlds cities, farms, man made strutctures, houses, etc comprise less than 1% of the worlds livable land surface. We produce enough food to feed presently six times the worlds population, and if farming methods were adopted like the German ones, with just the existing farm land, we can produce enough food to feed 12 times the present world population. If we open new available farm land, just another 5% we could feed up to 200 times the world present population.

      Our problems are regional and man made: Famine in certain parts of the world, fraud and theft of food. Foreign governments steal and sell on the black market donated foods, and even “dump” thousands of tons rather than give it away if they cannot sell it in the black market. Famine, fraud, politics, and especially wars, contribute to food shortages in vast areas, but in all we, especially the western world produce enough food to feed over six times our present population.

      On another note: The Muslim clerics and Imans teach, rather demand their women to have “10″ children or more, and multiple wives. The rich and middle class have resorted to birth control and abortion to limit their families in order to have a more “pleasurable” life, with an abundance of material goods. So, we see the Muslims emigrating to all the Western countries and taking advantage of the liberal welfare that is dolled out on from the hard work of western man, and then they demand “shira law” and more handouts, free medical, free everything, although Islamic countries are the laziest, and least productive of all nations. If it was not for the oil, that was discovered by western engineers, their factories and processing that is built by and managed by western engineers and business men, they would be living off their goats milk still. But they are a threat to our Western civilization. Every five minutes Christians are being attacked and killed by Muslims worldwide – think about that – daily you hear of Muslim attacks on Christian churches, cities and towns, villages, and women – non stop.

      Wake up America – or soon we will have what Catholic and Protestant mystics have been warning from their visions: Civil War and Revolution in America – followed by a Russian/Chinese attack while we are in the middle of chaos and turmoil and these mystics warn that they have seen visions of all this including – the most severe famine and starvation in American history where over half the population of America is to starve to death – coming soon. Obama’s mission was to prepare America for a Marxist Dictatorship on the heels of a civil war and revolution exasperated and instigated by this Marxist Administration.

      It is not overpopulation, it is population density and resources available. Where i live, (rural) my nearest neighbor is 15 miles away. In other parts of the world, that I have been, you cannot walk one step without bumping into someone.

      It’s like saying starvation is a myth because you are comfy and well fed in your little corner of the world.

      Bottom line, everything said here is true, except fertility rates are not rising, but falling dramatically. Sperm counts in men are falling 50% every 20 years. Maybe the below column should be read before going any further:

      What Happens When Some Population is Eliminated?

      Can we overcome the short-sightedness of the current administration? We’ve eliminated 16.5% of the current population since Roe vs. Wade. The effects of abortion–“The George Bailey Effect: Abortion-on-Demand and the Implications for America’s Economic Future—illuminates in one movie. “A Wonderful Life”, dictates any life failing to exist would have affected multitudes had the person lived to adulthood.

      A previous column appeared describing how many abortions have likely occurred in the history of mankind. Surgical and chemical abortions (abortifacients) were included. Chemicals and devices (i.e., Norplant, RU486, IUD, etc…) kill a live embryo, or very young baby with a soul usually before a mother can even see the baby she aborts.

      The number of lives lost by abortion throughout history has been astronomical. All those souls waiting for our arrival in the afterlife, cannot be too pleased with the decision to abruptly stop their mortal life.

      By the end of Obama’s 1st term, there will have been another 5.2 million known surgical abortions. Add the chemical abortions (7-12 million) done every year in the US [Birth Control Pill Causes Abortions -- Pro-Life America, Celebs ... ]. Simply put, over 10 million lives are snuffed out by chemicals each year. The grand total—surgical and chemical–over 11 million each year at 0-9 months are aborted in the US.

      #5 in the 10 Commandments (not Suggestions) is: “Thou shall not kill”. The other side of the coin is not as bad, but represents a major hit our economy cannot take. The Obama administration seems ‘hell-bent’(no pun intended) on population reduction and ‘saving dollars’ with abortion. With a soul’s afterlife, can their outlook be more short-term?

      Obama’s future outlook fails to reckon with the demographic and economic consequences. It’s known the US fertility rate is currently below the “replacement rate” of 2.1 children/woman. This decline is somewhat reduced by illegal immigration. But Mexico’s replacement rate is now at 1.98, when it was 3.2 in 1995. [UNdata | record view | Total fertility rate (children per woman)]

      In [], it shows how painful the costs of abortions in the US are, especially during the 4 years of the Obama Administration.

      Since the typical federal tax revenue supplied by each working US citizen is approximately $8,500/yr, the total US income the millions of “economic ghosts” (no longer earn an income) can easily be calculated. Hence, one can get the cost of abortion and taxes not paid into the system.

      Lawrence F. Roberge – The Cost of Abortion: An Analysis of the Social, Economic, and Demographic Effects of Abortion in the United States demonstrates the steady erosion of US economic competitiveness.

      The Social Security system will begin to go broke in 2017, now that only two workers only support each retiree. In 1945 there was 18 workers for each retiree. The USA Today recently stated: “If only one-third of those who have been aborted were available to start work on their 18th birthday, the demise of Social Security would be put off for decades.”

      The link with the cost tabulation on lost revenues shows [$350 billion/yr x 16.5%] = $57.8 b/yr lost to the government in taxes. Add to that, another [$185 billion/yr x 16.5%] = $30.5 b/yr lost on interest on debt not paid, do to missing taxes from those aborted. But wait. The list was ONLY for known surgical abortions.

      If you add both surgical and chemical abortions in the US every year, one gets >11 million abortions/yr in the US alone. Including all the abortions in one year, the above dollar amounts should actually be multiplied by 10. That calculates to [$57.8b + $30.5b]10= $883 b/yr, that’s not getting put into the US economy.

      In the next presidential term, SC Justices Ginsburg and Kennedy will likely retire on the Supreme Court. If Obama is re-elected, RoeVsWade will not be overturned for at least another 4 years. If Romney gets elected, he will likely choose a Republican nominee. That nominee will likely vote to eliminate Roe, but it will likely be left it up to each state to approve abortions.

      The results of one vote, by 9 people, in 1973, can be decimating…

      No such thing as over-population! Is lack of population grooming, through Family Planning, Allowing of only one or two genetically selected offspring per qualifying family unit, as China does now, that will count very big in the very near future! All others will be sloughed off! U.S. does this now not by humane Family Planning Programs, but by curtailing or limiting food stamps, military enlistments, holding a minimum wage, poorer schooling, improper medical care, to the socially undesirable, ‘useless eaters”, bags of skin, their mongrel populations. These useless mouths have become a burden to even the U.S. Super-power’s economy.

      Do we really want to rely on future technologies and trust scientists with our lives and lives of our children and grandchildren? As it turns out, technologies and progress are not playing a significant role in improving the efficiency of resource allocation. On the contrary, they are exacerbating the problem. Dan Brown, a well-known American writer and the author of “The Da Vinci Code” dedicated his latest book to the problem of overpopulation. He provides us with striking facts several indicators that are accelerating at terrifying rate now through the words of one of his antagonists. The writer even puts a chilling picture of this dynamics in the book:

      We see that overpopulation indicators like a number of vehicles, water use and paper consumption increased more than tenfold for the last 50 years. As a result, other related rates skyrocketed. Unfortunately, there are no reasons for a slowdown of this exponential growth. Modern technologies and policies could not suppress soaring consumption and they won’t succeed in future when we reach a point of no return. If we want to live and raise our children in comfortable conditions, we need to ponder over this problem right now.

      Secondly, already existing local overpopulation threatens our planet. E. Erle briefly recounts us about some parts of the world history. Well, duh…. This story neither disproves the fact that overpopulation nowadays is a problem, nor it reveals any curious facts. However, E. Erle purportedly mentions China which
      demographic history of the last 50 years doubtlessly confirms that
      overpopulation is a huge issue. Anyone with a teaspoon of knowledge of Chinese history might argue that furious numbers of famines there occurred as a consequence of enormous population growth. Despite having strong technological progress, China could not work out the overpopulation problem. Alon Tal, a well-known biologist also notices such controversial aspect of E. Erle argument. He observes that “that China’s most recent food crisis, between 1958 and 1961, led to the starvation of over twenty million people, in part due to the erosion of China’s natural capital.” Indeed, uncontrolled population growth results in an impoverishment of many people since the technological growth does not necessarily manifests itself as fast and evidently as the increase of number of people per square kilometer. Over the years, millions of Chinese were exterminated by a disastrous plague called hunger. Such famines could easily be shared by other countries with high population growth which overtakes the technological progress Nonetheless, modern Chinese government found a mechanism to prevent such destructive effect of overpopulation. Is that a reform based on the acceleration of technological progress? No! Chinese one-child policy which rapidly decreased women fertility, consequently, saved millions of people which could be born from a death from starvation. Thus, the existing local overpopulation
      might easily transform into global one if people do not start worrying about
      overpopulation issue.

      Overpopulation is a problem and we cannot ignore it. The data clearly shows that our consumption is growing at an alarming rate and we cannot ignore this as history has shown on the example of China that this problem cannot be solved by technological advance alone and requires a more direct interference. One solution to the problem is the one-child policy, which may seem harsh, but at the end of the day it is a small price to pay for a higher quality of life.

        China has basically insured a dramatic decrease in its population when mandatory vaccination became party policy surely, they were aware of the sterility factor and genetic mutations passed on to future births, and infants that do succeed have tremendous immunological deficits. The spike proteins alone cause myocarditis. Who in their right mind would want to bring an infant into a system that has so utterly failed its people anyway as China has?

    • infamousgrizz

      It’s hard to take an article like this seriously when it is so full of mistakes. There is not a sentence in the first 3 paragraphs that doesn’t contain some sort of error. I’m inclined to believe articles such as this are released by the very entities they speak against to discredit their detractors. This is a sound argument ruined by its poor presentation.

      p.s. some of the comments on this are just insane!
