Ten Billion People on Earth: Nightmare or Non-Event? - Business News - CNBC
Can someone explain this?
The production of a single cup of coffee requires 100 liters (26 gallons) of water, while a chocolate bar draws upon 27,000 liters (7,132 gallons). Even a simple computer search for www.CNBC.com consumes the same energy as boiling a kettle.
Good excuse for WW3?
Are you one of these Neo Malthusians, then? Or about to be. I do hope not.
Them there fucking climate migrants; coming 'ere, stealing our weather..., Britain will develop militarized borders to stave off mass immigration. “Climate migrant” could become an everyday term, he said.
Interesting piece. Thanks.

We could all sit outside on banana lounges discussing the best way to rebuild a 4WD transmission and agree, through shared stories of conquests supporting our assertions, that there is no basis to the proposition that those least assured of their persuasions are the first to condemn others for theirs.
The human population has increased due largely to our excessive consumption of the planet's resources.
As those resources diminish we will either have to invent new forms of energy and food production or our population will collapse through a combination of wars, which we are already seeing, and starvation of those who lose out.
Our generation are the lucky ones who get to consume the resources; I wouldn't want to be here in a hundred years' time. Is Somalia Mankind's future?
