I just don't get it George, could it be that Malthus was on to something, and that the population control measures of Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, and Planned Parenthood are the reason more haven't "shown up". What is the significance of "showing up"? Do we need more "showdowns"?

Maybe the question is:

What is the sustainable carrying capacity of Earth?

How long will it take for demand to exeed supply with 7 billion?

What happens when demand exceeds supply?

Is it happening now?
