In the next 100 years it will be a problem. You are acting like this is something that is going to just pop up. This is something that has been happening. And at the current rate , in 100 years, it will be a VERY big problem.

?????? WTF are you on about now ?

That is the exact opposite of what I have been saying.

Show me ANY part of my posts that said this was just going to pop up

I said this was not even going to happen, and if it did, it would take thousands of years to slowly happen, if it was going to be a huge problem in 100 years, we'd all be fighting over food today, which we're not

I don't think thousands of years. One hundred years there will be a big change. Energy requirements, pollution, lack of oil, trees, food, so many people, climate change, rising sea levels.

We are already seeing some of the effects.

I mean wasn't it 1950s there was like 3 billion population, now there's 7 billion. How long do you think this is going to on for? People are cutting down forests like amazon. In hundred years without control a lot of it will be gone.

Bees are one of the key areas of life

baloney! you can put everyone on earth within the state of Texas alone and everyone will have a 2 acre plot. LOL

do the math yourselves

1 square mile = 5280 x 5280 square feet = 27,878,400 square feet. So 268,581 square miles = 7,487,608,550,400. For simplicity say 7.5 x 10^12. That divided by 7 x 10^9 is indeed over 1000 square feet per person. So if we made one giant one-story compound over Texas, land, water, and all, we would each get a 1,000 square foot unit.

I think the biggest resource that we need is WATER. This is in very short supply. Yes you cannot count salt water right now and only a very very small portion of water on the planet is non-salt.
