Overpopulation Dictum? Better Change the Carrying Capacity of Earth!
Be sure annotations are enabled. The carrying capacity of the Earth has a proximate limit because we think of that limit as something that we can't change, but we can, if we change our exponential growth into sustainable growth.
This is not meant literally but understand what it signifies.
Couldn't we all be traveling the world in solar powered ships with automated hydroponic farms in them? self-sufficiency, energy costs would be zero, no pollution, water would be recycled or minimal amounts would be required (desalinization), waste would be stored/disposed adequately (yes, that could happen in an ILLUSORY WORLD, BUT keep it in mind when thinking of change) And what would people do mainly? Science and Arts perhaps
