World Population


QUESTION: Do you think the world is overpopulated and that is the problem?

ANSWER: Anyone who has flown around the world and looked out the window knows that there are vast areas where humankind does not exist. We actually only occupy about 3% of the landmass, and 29% to 40% of that is just wilderness. If you took the 7.2 billion people living on this planet and put them in a pile, it would not even fill the Grand Canyon. Even if we took everyone who ever existed and threw them into the pile (106 billion people) it still would not come close to filling it.
