I think it is high time to put the "over-population lie to rest! I am sick and tired of hearing the same old rhetoric of how the earth is over populated - when it is easily proven it is not even close to ever being over-populated.

Based on the information provided below, how can the earth be pverpopulated when the entire population would fit on under 12% of the earths available land mass? SO what exactly is the agenda here? Read on and find out the truth to the overpopulation lie.

Putting the “over population” lie to rest

These are actual calculations based on all available information to date. Granted Australia or South America (examples given) could not sustain the earths population with their resources alone – but it does put the “over-population “ argument to rest insofar as the size of the earths land surface and the amount of people on it.

In calculating with only 12% of the world’s available land mass surface (using the South American continent alone); then the remaining resources from earths available land mass would equal 88%.

Bottom line, it comes down to a question of exactly what the agenda really is! Is it a matter of perceived over population? Or is it a question of too many people to control? Either way, the facts are that this earth is NOT over-populated.

WORLD:

7,071,773,789 people as of 19:59 UTC (EST+5) Mar 12, 2013

Australian Continent = 2,967,892 square miles

Calculating that 1 Square Mile = 27, 878, 400 Square Feet

2,967,892 square miles X 27,878,400 square feet = 82,740,080,332,800 sq ft
82,740,080,332,800 sq ft / 14,520 (1/3 acre) = 5,698,352,640 (1/3 acre parcels)

World population as of date indicated = 7,071,773,789

Australia (by itself) could potentially house 5,698,352,640 people (on 1/3 acre parcels ) by itself, leaving just 1,373,421,149 people to find a home elsewhere while using just 5.2% of the earth surface.

South America Continent = 6,880,000 Sq. Miles

6,880,000 square miles X 27,878,400 square feet = 191,803,392,000,000 sq ft
191,803,392,000,000 sq ft /14,520 ( 1/3 acre) = 13,209,600,000 (1/3 acre parcels )

If you wanted to raise the stakes a bit and allocate ½ an acre to everyone on the earth (man, woman and child) then based on the below calculations:

6,880,000 square miles X 27,878,400 = 191,803,392,000,000 sq ft
191,803,392,000,000 sq. ft / 21780 sq. ft (1/2 acre) = 8,806,400,000 ½ acre parcels
8,806,400,000 (1/2 acre parcels) – 7,071,773,789 people (world population) = 1,734,626,211 available
this shows that in South America alone, there is still room for growth of yet another 1,734,626,211 people to be put onto ½ acre parcels and still only use 12% of the earth’s land mass.

South America alone could potentially house the entire earths population on 1/3 acre parcels and have enough room for growth by 0.535351% and only use 12.0 % of the earths surface area.

USA

315,479,883 people in the USA as of 19:59 UTC (EST+5) Mar 12, 2013

USA = 3,794,083 square miles

3,794,083 square miles X 27,878,400 square feet = 1,057,729,307,200 square feet
1,057,729,307,200 square feet / 315,479,883 people = 335276.412887 square feet
335276.412887 square feet / 43,560 = 7.696887 acres per person

This would give every US citizen (man, woman and child) almost 8 acres of land to live on.

LAND MASS PERCENTAGES OF THE EARTH

The World 57,308,738 Sq. Miles (148,429,000 Sq. Km) 100%
Asia (including the Middle East) 17,212,000 Sq. Miles (44,579,000 Sq. Km) 30.0%
Africa 11,608,000 Sq. Miles (30,065,000 Sq. Km) 20.3%
North America 9,365,000 Sq. Miles (24,256,000 Sq. Km) 16.3%
South America 6,880,000 Sq. Miles (17,819,000 Sq. Km) 12.0%
Antarctica 5,100,000 Sq. Miles (13,209,000 Sq. Km) 8.9%
Europe 3,837,000 Sq. Miles (9,938,000 Sq. Km) 6.7%
Australia (plus Oceania) 2,968,000 Sq. Miles (7,687,000 Sq. Km) 5.2%

One acre equals = 0.0015625 square miles,
4,840 square yards,
43,560 square feet[1]
or about 4,047 square metres (0.405 hectares) (see below).

While all modern variants of the acre contain 4,840 square yards, there are alternative definitions of a yard, so the exact size of an acre depends on which yard it is based on.

Originally, an acre was understood as a selion of land sized at forty perches (660 ft) long and four perches (66 ft) wide;[2] this may have also been understood as an approximation of the amount of land a yoke of oxen could plough in one day.

A square enclosing one acre is approximately 69.57 yards, or 208 feet 9 inches (63.63 metres) on a side. As a unit of measure, an acre has no prescribed shape; any perimeter enclosing 43,560 square feet is an acre in size.

Re: “New PPP Poll Shows Ducey's Job Approval at 27 Percent”

Unfortunately Ducey is a McCain stooge - or clone (take your pick) You have one you have them both. He is bought and paid for by APS and the scandals under his administration just keep on going - so, no surprise here at all!
