If the US didn't give food aid and food to other countries, would we really see much higher prices and be worrying about overpopulation? There would probably be closer to 3 billion people in the world instead of 7 right now.

/might sound mean, but deal with it.

They should develop an algae to be deposited subcutaneously which would symbiotically provide us with photosynthetic nutrients to reduce the amount of caloric and vitamin intake required

We don't need more food. We just need fewer people.

freidog: 4 or 5 of us get together for a local butcher to divide up a side of beef every year or so. Now I'm wondering how far out I can reserve a cow....

[slight threadjack]
Buy a whole steer now, or at least in the next few months. The low corn and soy harvest this summer means ranchers and farmers are dumping their cattle, poultry and pigs into the market, so prices are low. Sometime before the holiday season prices will star rising sharply, though as the reduced supply is felt, and could easily climb 50% or more. If we have a decent crop next year, prices will drop back to normal, but if you've stocked up you won't even feel the price hike.

Anyone who seriously believes a population growing the way ours is can survive on meat instead of on the food that we feed to the meat is high.

I'd eat the lab-grown meat, but given how people responded to the "pink slime," that almost certainly won't be an option. Of course, neither will any of the other options in the article, which is kind of the point.

/no it won't result in improved behavior
//it will instead result in fingerpointing, and eventually all-out war, long before anyone starts seriously eating bugs

Is the question really "what will we be eating in 2032?", or is it "what will poor people in overpopulated countries be eating in 2032?"

numberonenoob: Seems like Africa and Asia are where the real rampant, mindless, excessive progeny boom is going on. Could be wrong. Anyways they're dirty and poor and not contributing an excess of food to the world. fark them, let them starve, and voila population problem corrected. Nature sucks but even humans have to live in reality, can't expand infinitely on finite resources so stop spewing out 3+ crotchfruit per couple.

Do you get that the reason they have so many children is because mortality is so high, right?

So, your post basically is just saying "fark the poor."

Which is why we should be feeding our meat food we can't eat ourselves. LIke hay and alfalfa and duckweed and crap (not literal crap, just stuff we don't otherwise eat).

I'm pretty sure we'll have a big World War before a plague. We're overdue for one...
