How would you deal with the exponential growth problem if you were the elite? 1890 population 1 billion people worldwide 1940 population 2 billion people worldwide~50 years doubled 1963 population 3 billion people worldwide~70 years later 1986 population 5 billion people worldwide~90 years later 1998 population 6 billion people worldwide~108 years later 2011 population 7 billion people worldwide~120 years later 2020 estimation 9.3 billion people worldwide projection~130 years later these are scary statistics to see how much population growth we have had in 120 years. the 80+year olds could tell you how the fish in rivers were so thick you could walk across their backs in the rivers.~now your lucky to tag one in a season. the deer were so thick you could hunt from the road and never leave your truck. i walked many miles and never seen a deer,not even a doe or spike. the produce in the grocerie stores were picked fresh locally~now their shipped from chillie,brazile,mexico,and pumped full of growth hormones to grow quick enough to keep the people fed....even though due to the chemicals that apple has no nutritional value. We supposedly reached peak oil in the 1970's when we were about 4 billion people worldwide.so where does that accelerate us to now for running out? The world is over populated and the people having the most kids are the ones who cant even afford to feed themselves,they live on welfare and have more poor kids that will raise poor kids themselves so what would you do if you seen the oil being sucked up by some welfare mama in her suv?you know she dont pay taxes to contribute for her foodstamps,gas and consumption. you know the younger generation is rebellious,hooked on drugs,making more kids they cant pay for leaving even more welfare for the goverment elite to come up with. so what would you do?how would you propose to thin out the population and preserve the last of the resources? they could live forever on the remaining fuel and water and in 10 years maybe even restore the fishing and hunting to 1960's levels.
