In secret societies, lives the idea that the world should go to a 300 to 500 million people population max, because the energy demand per capita of the population is over 50 years more than 10 times the current level.
Projections from reliable sources on the Internet, however, that there is at most a doubling over 80 years.
Biogas from waste of agriculture and households, solar and wind energy (CO2 neutral) can then really potentially supply more than the current world population (more than 7 billion) with energy:
Source: Johan Gerard van der Galien “Rise of the Biodegradation Society (II): Green waste is full of clean energy” (Dutch) CHEMICAL MAGAZINE july / August 1995 Page 338 Note: The scope of this article series is that with packaging materials of biodegradable plastics, the whole floating surface layer after separation from a water layer, the organic fraction of household waste can go into the biogas fermentor. Sorry in Dutch 😦 So numbers for 1995 are 99% coverages of world energy demand by biogas alone!
This blog is intended for policy makers around the world to take part in the considerations about the overcrowding and what measures should be taken. The fact is that if all 7 billion people in the world start eating 100 kg of meat every year, as we in The West, we have for the feed of the livestock more than three planets like the earth, so for the agricultural land to harvesting the feed, and additionally the enormous methane emissions (idea of Dutch Party for the Animals) of such a gigantic herds that contributes to the greenhouse effect.
