Feeding the nine billion

Fancy eating grey goo, or according to scientists meat grown in a vat. One of the ideas proposed by science and academic experts to deal with the problem of feeding the world when the population has boomed to nine billion is turning skyscrapers into farms to feed our cities. This is not a scheme cooked up by corporate interests or big agribusiness like cloning and GM food, but the loonytoons thinking of an academic.

Nine billion is the number of humans is predicted to be reached by 2050. The simple answer to overpopulation that nobody is talking about is population control.

Do we need nine billion people? Apart from feeding nine bilion people with exactly the same resources as are failing to feed 6.8 billion now can we ceep such a vast population occupied in an increasingly jobless world? Do we have the technology to keep population levels manageable? Yes and yes.

One thought on “Feeding the nine billion

  1. I’m planning a dystopian novel where the “brutal” Autistic Nationalist government is pretty much the only government taking any action. The Pregnancy Viability Pannels they come up with not only decrease population growth but also pick out bad parents before they are even parents.

    Religious groups object to forced abortion of course but Lord President Bright has a simple solution.

    “Unless you do as your God commands and pay unto Ceaser I shall make the practicing of your faith an act of High Treason. Then we’ll see how many people REALLY want to be martyred for you absurd beliefs.”
