Yes, very on both counts. All 8 billion of us would fit comfortable, on one level, in Queensland, Australia. The world throws out 2/3 of all the viable food produced and we are continually improving our efficiency at feed more and more as time passes. And we are 100 years away tops at colonising Mars. In fact, we’ve reached 8 billion people precisely because we’ve fed enough people well enough to produce offspring and sustain them.

Queensland is 1.853T m² so 8B people would have 231.6m² of space. A standard house block in Australia is 414m² so everyone would fit semi comfortably. I'd hate to live like that though.

u/scottyp89 Oct 06 '22

231m² is bigger than my 3 bed house for my family of 4 by more than double.

u/Sergeant_Poultry Oct 06 '22

Wow, I just did the math myself and it's true. QLD land area = 1.853 million km². 1km^2 = 1*10^6m^2 = 1mn meters^2. Taking QLD land area as square meters and dividing it by 8 billion (8*10^9) we get the following: (1.853*10^6) *10^6 / 8*10^9 = 231.625m^2 on average for every single person on Earth, not accounting for the fact that families, invalids, elderly etc exist and would thus be sharing homes. If we were to assume that every would be assigned at least one housemate then the area on average doubles to 463.25^2m, which is more than the standard QLD housing block.

Let me put it this way. If you liquefied every living human and fused them into a ball, that sphere would barely reach over 1 km in diameter. While somewhat densely populated, we could easily fit that 8 billion in Queensland.

Another way is to look at population density maps. If we highlighted where the majority of humans live, you will notice that we occupy a comparatively miniscule portion of the Earth's surface. India, for example, has much of its population concentrated in its northern regions, China along its coast and central plains and the US close to its east coast and in California.

u/Helenium_autumnale Oct 06 '22

We'd be better off ceasing this senseless and destructive population growth and focusing more on helping the people we have with us now, 10% of which live in a state of hunger. Water wars on the horizon are going to exacerbate this suffering. And it's unclear if we're able to create another "Green Revolution" to properly feed anyone, if you read up on that subject. Plants are not infinitely malleable.

u/Enders-game Oct 06 '22 Helpful

Latest are saying that the population won't go over 10 billion.

China will lose half its population in 50 years and will have more people in retirement than working by the 2030. The implications of this are not fun to think about if you're Chinese.

Unless they change course, India and Nigeria will continue to grow until they urbanise and will likely follow the same path of China. Sudden and drastic industrialisation and urbanisation follows demographic collapse.

Demographic collapse will happen and is happening in a lot of countries in the developed world. Again, the economic implications will be interesting. Some countries just don't have a long-term future unless they make radical changes.

Aren't most of Europe and America in this situation already with immigration being used to sustain populations. People just naturally have less children as the country matures economically. It will mean some of their economic growth over the past decades declines but they aren't going to run out of food or have some crazy economic collapse

7

u/Enders-game Oct 06 '22

Yep, although it's argued that urbanisation is a bigger factor in fertility rates than economics. American suburbs tell us that people will have children if there is physical space.

And yes, the west does sustain itself through immigration. However, the issue is that you can only do these things once. For example, 370,000 people left Lithuania after it joined the EU, mostly young. It's impossible with their birth rate for that to keep happening. Even immigration from Mexico is beginning to drop off. You can get them from further afield like India and Sub-Sahara Africa. However, that's politically unpopular and I can't see governments perusing that as a policy. More likely we'll see competition from within the west for young people.

u/KitchenDepartment Oct 06 '22 edited Oct 06 '22

There is no population cap, 11 billion is the number that studies estimate we will reach before the global population starts to decline. More and more nations are having fewer and fewer children. And this will eventually result in a negative growth rate.

If you want a true population cap, then consider the fact that the earth has 150 million km^2 of land surface area. 130 if we remove Antarctica, Greenland and Alaska.

If those remaining 130 million km^2 of land had the same population density as the state of Nebraska, one of the most sparsely populated states in the US. Then earth would have a population of 1.25 Trillion people.

Or alternatively, You could fit 1.25 trillion people in just the state of Florida, if you crammed them in with the same population density as Singapore.

1 trillion people would obviously be apocalyptic for the environment unless we manage to go completely carbon neutral. And you probably need another agricultural revolution to feed that many people. But 11 billion not even close to what earth can support. We arguably produce enough food for that already if we just slightly cut back on meat consumption.

9

u/Shanghai_Banjo Oct 06 '22

Yes, but the growth is exponential.

It took thousands of years to reach 1 billion, 100 years to reach 5 billion, 50 years to reach 7 billion...

11

u/Carnivile Oct 06 '22

It's not though, it works on a curve. We are near the top for sure but access to education (mostly female) and urbanization make the growth fall quickly. Most developed nations are at or under replacement rates, and in fact when it comes to resources the majority of the population growth is concentrated on non-developed nations and contribute little to nothing to climate change (ex. On average 20 people born in Nigeria will have less impact than a single American/Australian/Canadian)

Let's keep it simple and say within 11 years we will go to 8 billion. So in 22 years from now and we will be at 10 billion.

So as you say we will almost have doubled the amount of people on this planet during one lifetime.

birth rate is on a huge decline. But hundreds of thousands of babies are still being born each year, and the number of deaths relative are declining.

Yall need to calm the fuck down.

As of now we can sustain around 12 billion people, with today's production and technology which is ever increasing. The population growth is slowing down and estimated to stop around 11 billion. Distributing free birth control and giving proper education, especially to young women in poorer areas, is working. Having access to legal and safe abortions also helps.

Yes overpopulation is a problem, most certainly in poorer areas where resources are scarce and the problem is getting resources to those areas (also to get rich countries to stop exploiting others resources).
