The overpopulation myth is annoying though. It's not that we are overpopulated, it's just places with large populations can't properly handle themselves and now when places like China and India are starting to do that, it's much better. We need way more people to try;y be overpopulated. Scientists worried about overpopulation in the 70s and 80s but new studies show the faults lie elsewhere when we used to blame overpopulation for those

It sure is annoying.  The world is not even remotely close to having too many people.  If the growth rate continues as it has, maybe that discussion will make sense in a few thousand years.  

For those of you that haven't seen it, check out this article, explaining that the entire human race can fit inside Tunisia, New Zealand, or even a small US state.  https://www.fastcompany.com/3016331/think-the-world-is-crowded-you-could-fit-the-entire-human-race-in-new-zealand
