What do 7 billion people look like?

Quote:
As the world population explodes, so does the growth of cities, especially in Asia and Africa.
Globally, one in two people lives in an urban area, a milestone reached in 2007, says the United Nations Population Fund, the agency that predicts world population will reach 7 billion on Oct. 31.
In about 35 years, two out of three people will live in cities and towns, the agency predicts.

Right...but just like the market..it will correct itself. It's said that females are in high demand at work and generally due to this. Soon they will be the preferred gender...etc.

And sometimes we've to pick the lesser of two evils. Overpopulation creates serious problems as we know. The gender bias will only serve to lower the population with less females to give birth.

I say we send our females over in return for them canceling our trade debt.

I think it's better stated as there are too many males for females in China. It's not like they are underpopulated over there.

China grows because they want to engulf the world and steal trade secrets.

The rest of the countries grow because their Catholic handlers tell them birth control is evil.

The only viable solution is to fling China into a space colony. Pretty sure that's about right.
