This is silly: 1 - there are large inhabitable areas: mountains, deserts, etc... Of course no one is living there. 2 - every human being in a city still requires a large amount of farmland, large forests to produce enough wood for building and furniture, large ocean areas to provide the fish, etc... the land used is just no where you live.3 - hopefully after all this is counted there would still be space for a lot of wild areas.4 - the current population is already overshooting the earth capacity on a lot of variables. Oil production will start to decrease within a couple decades. Most fish species are overfished. Most large animals are threatened with extinction because of lack of space. The current population is fed through intensive mono-culture requiring massive pesticide usage, etc, etc...All this for what? So we can keep growing a few more decades? Wouldn't it be better if the population was stable and smaller?
China, India all have way more people than US. And now US is sponsoring Africa to grow.
That is true. But each person in US have 10x if not 100x or 1000x global footprint than people in those countries.
