"Colorado River: First-ever shortage declared amid record US drought"

So, at today's level of technology (who knows what will happen in the future), what is the capacity of the Earth?

This is something I've thought about quite a bit, and argued a few times with people, but this news article about the Colorado river made me think about it again.

The world only has so much agricultural land. The more we expand into urban areas, the less agricultural land we have. Animal farming for meat requires more land than agricultural land for crops, rich being the most efficient crop/energy and wheat being a long way behind.

There's only so much water too (hence the article), lots of places are suffering. China is suffering.

A youtube video (if you can be bothered to watch it, you don't need to) that explains that the north of China is at the limit or way over the limit for population, and China is taking a lot of water from the Mekong river that feeds into friendly nation Cambodia (who needs enemies when you have friends like this?) and a few other countries to the south, and Tibet feeds into Indian rivers, which is why Tibet is such an emotive issue.

We have more than 7 billion people. Where will we end up having big wars and starvation, droughts etc because we simply don't have the ability to deal with this any more? Or will technology step up before this becomes a problem?

As is typical with America today, there are real problems and there are frauds used by the Zionist left to screw America.


Real problems

Human overpopulation
US Federal Debt


Total fraud used to harm America

Global warming
Covid
The murderous fraud vax for a virus that was gone last year
"Islamic terror" aka Zionist false flag treason

This is a misnomer.

A lot of the land used for the cultivation of animal farming is not the same as land used for agriculture. In many cases, grazing land is not suitable for crops, and in many cases, poultry and pork does not use as much land as agriculture.

The real debate exists in using feed stocks to feed herds in off season or to quickly breed livestock.

The solution is elementary, withdraw government agricultural subsidies, and let the market work itself out.

As far as the manufactured water crises and the false climate crises to shift global power and distort who owns which market shares?

That is a hot debate, where folks just want to call those who are telling the truth, "conspiracy theorists."

Patterns of the hydrological cycle and use patterns indeed might be changing, but how we use that resource should be determined by the market and the people, not by centralized authoritarians determined to build a Neo-feudalist technocracy.

Well, global warming is an issue. The problem is that global warming happens naturally.

Man made global warming is an unknown. We don't know the impact. We do know that pollution impacts humans. People die from it all the time, especially in polluted cities. But we don't know what the world's temperature would have been had humans not industrialized, so this makes it a big problem.

However, we should be living in balance with our world, and overpopulation is one big out of whack balance problem.

Farm subsidies center is in the school lunch programs.
Do away with school lunch programs to get rid of farm subsidies.
