The 7 billionth person is reported to be born sometime at the end of this month. The world is populating at an alarming rate with the 8 billionth living person predicted in the next 11-13 years.

With the depletion of resources and lack of dwellings, jobs, world recession, combined with the fact that people are living longer these days, The old Sci-Fi movies like Soylent Green and Logan's Run may have to become a reality.

What are your thoughts about it?

So, you are a land owner? laugh We have to get allotments as soon as possible to grow all these things! But then, how we will fertilize these allotments? laugh Seriously, when I was a child, we had allotment of 600m2 and our grand aunt had one besides, so we did grow everything. Apart from meat and dairy and grains, of course. May be everyone can have small piece of land, fertilize it by their own waste and be self sufficient thus? dunno

Not the nicest climate there, but we can probably get used. After all, the cradle of civilization is in Africa, but people have gone to live in most inhospitable places!
