i do believe that the population increase will be the main reason of the doomsday.

i realized that when i saw another website which shows how many people were in the world the day you were born.
mine was around 5 billion, but then my mother asked if i could check it with her birthday. she was born in 1963, and population was something like 3.2 billion. can you imagine, nearly 2 billion people were born in just 24 years.

 :o i don't think there will be enough space or food for our grandchildren.

Apparently the 7,000,000,000th person was supposed to be born tomorrow, or today, depending on your timezone.

I believe we will adapt. We could grow a LOT more food than we do, and we could do it while allowing much of the land we use for farming to return to its wild state.

i'm pretty excited about the helium 3 and moon mining they are talking about now.

farming on the moon wouldn't be impossible, either.

also, the food problem we have isn't a yield problem, it's a transportation problem. by the way, 70% of the world's crops end up rotting in the fields.

don't worry - I wasn't sure we were talking about the same thing, because I didn't look at the actual link in this thread or the other one.  :buck2:
