OVERPOPULATION CRISIS ON EARTH
Genesis, Chapter 9, Verse
"And as for you, be fruitful and multiply; bring forth
abundantly in the earth and multiply
A mere 12% of the entire Earth's landmass surface is entirely arable for agricultural and horticultural purposes. The remainder of
the planet's surface consists of areas that cannot be cultivated, such as mountains, rocky terrains, tundras, arid regions, forests
One single human being requires by nature 4000 square meters, or 63.245 x 63.245 meters of fertile ground or garden soil
to feed him- or herself. Calculated for 8 billion people, this amounts to a total arable landmass requirement of about 32 million
square kilometers. Such an expanse is not available, however, because the entire planet's 12% arable land amounts to 18 million square
kilometers – 14 million square kilometers less than the 8 billion-strong humanity requires for adequate food production. This
12% surface is reduced daily and dwindles through erosion, desertification and the construction of homes, streets, airports, villages,
mega-cities and all types of large sport facilities, etc. etc.
Extracts from Billy Meier's Overpopulation Booklets:
-world peace possible
food for all
Leading to a life of
to stop the increase!!
reduction at all,
so rapidly increasing
suffering and degeneration.
Man treats his native land, the Earth, its atmosphere, its bodies of water, its entire environment and its diverse life forms and
species as objects, which he may simply utilise, use, destroy, plunder and then discard and destroy when he is through with them.
Man's voracious appetite for everything the Earth has to offer, and his excessive urge to procreate will ultimately devour and destroy
the planet and all life on it, where he will leave nothing behind except for a dead, barren wasteland.
Man now faces the unfortunate
situation where the fishermen, farmers, gardeners and others cannot keep pace with the demands of population growth. This means that
the extra hundreds of millions of people who are born every year, and who add to the current population masses, will only be fed if
the people already alive now restrict their own food consumption. A totally new scenario now comes into play for Man, but he will
not adjust to it.
Man's insane desire to procreate is now leading him to the point where every social,
ecological and economic woe is climbing
immeasurably beyond the point of recovery.
Consequently, millions of people will continue to starve to death; indeed, they will starve in ever-increasing
numbers and this is apart from the many more who are malnourished and thereby are suffering.
In his megalomanic delusions of grandeur, man has already shown himself to be so inhumane, uncharitable and feebleminded as to allow
everything around him to degenerate into limitless cowardice: His realistic and reasonable thinking, along with true love, charity,
humanitarianism and love of truth, have all become completely desensitized. Hence, he is no longer able to recognize that terrestrial
humankind’s major problems are caused by the liability of overpopulation. This situation can only be relieved by the strictest birth
In his absurdity and selfishness Man, who loves to call himself the crowning glory of Creation, has proliferated
to such a degree that he has now become a vicious threat to all life throughout the globe. Man is the greatest menace to the Earth.
He has by now initiated dangerous changes to countless lives worldwide, while humankind's population continues to grow incessantly
at a furious, constantly increasing pace. For this reason alone Earth continues to turn into a wasteland.
Man fancies himself as being the crown of Creation. Indeed, he believes that by having the capability to think he is allowed to regard
himself as superior to everything else. Thus, he believes he is entitled to permit planetwide, human overpopulation, and that he can
ignore the laws and directives of nature and trample them with his feet.
Man has ignored the laws and recommendations of Creation and by allowing human overpopulation to occur on Earth he
has become a threat to life on this planet. The insanity of overpopulation is supported by certain religious cults who believe
in this foolish statement:
Rather than maintaining a reasonable population level of about 0.5 billion, man has allowed the population on Earth to increase to
about 8 billion in a mere 300 years.
