Clinton 2030: The World Will Come to an End

What these latter-day Malthusians miss is that even you moved all 7 billion people to the U.S. (give the pro-immigration another 27 years), that would only result in a population density of three people per acre. Even if you assume only 20% of the U.S. land mass is 'habitable', that's still only 15 people per acre. That's way below the population density in most U.S. metro areas. Once you throw the rest of the world's land mass in, 7 billion is a very sparse number. The earth can support those numbers. It's only the backward cultures and economic systems throughout the 'developing' world that limits sustainable growth. But these are the Clinton's we're talking about, so logic is not allowed. Just like with the weed he smoked, but never inhaled. Slick Willie may have taken math, but he never learned.

BS your numbers don't add up

Mike,
Here is a little remedial math and geography for you.
USA area = 2.7 mln sq miles (Google "usa area size"), that is 2.4 bln acres. 7 / 2.4 ~= 3. 3 / (20%) = 15.
Urban population density: 2,900 / sq mile (http://www.demographia.com/db-intlua-area2000.htm), which is 4.5 / acre.
I wonder what _you_ did at school?

Sorry - a typo. USA area is ~3.8 mln sq miles.
I guess the old adage about every grammar flame containing at least one grammatical error is true for other flames, too ;-)
But the rest of the numbers are right.

Alex, sadly, for Mike, the answer to 7/2.4= Socialism.
