The ratio of reindeer to landmass was much, much smaller than humans to Earth. We have room on this planet to sustain at least 10 times the population we currently have.

Our current technology has the ability to sustain over twice the amount, roughly 12 billion people, to live on the planet comfortably. Imagine industrializing most of the third world nations, making their populations level off such as seen in Westernized nations. The world's population would actually decrease slightly, and reaching over 7-8 billion people would simply not happen.

I agree With Mr. Ree and to make life easier/better we schould start looking at Space management. bad example: China's Cities. good example: African Villages.

Mr. Ree:
357.048 km² - 6.000 - 59,5 km²/deer
150.000.000 km² - 6.000.000.000 - 0,025km²/person (btw: it's almost 7bil, so it's even less)

Fido:
I sure hope this planet will never have twice the population it has now. Because the planet even can't sustain the population at the moment.. If you are convinced different, explain me why the planet's resources are only for the rich among us, and why the poor are only getting more poor.. (and I 'm not talking about money, because money is fiction)

@Earth

Please think before you start writing bullshit. The island's land area is 357km², not 357,000! It doesn't even bother you to write this ridiculous number...

Then, one always uses the population density (number of individuals /sq mile or /sq km), not the reverse.

On the island: 16,8 deers /km²
On the USA: 31,2 pp/km²
World: 46,9 pp/km²

Now we can talk.

As Derrick Jenson puts it, any civilization that has to import resources to survive will not be able to sustain itself and will die, it's just a matter of time. 90% of the large Tuna are gone, plastic fills the oceans. The forests are gone. The salmon are all gone. How long do you really think we can do this and continue. Read Endgame, read & watch anything by Derrick Jensen. Open your eyes. It's already over.

Room?Yes.
Resources?Hmm don't know the figures,but I'm guessing the amount of oil and gas left isn't going to increase in size anytime soon

theres only so much natural resource. 99.9% of everything we use/do depends on that natural resource whether it be gas, oil, coal, water or whatever you can think of. with our growing populace once we reach peak production on natural resources we will end up with more demand than product causing global economic collapse. of course earth can hold 10xs the current population. but for how long?

1. The first picture is a direct rip-off of the cover of "The Black Island", one of the Tintin books.
2. People are not reindeer - that is a factious analogy. We marshal our resources, grow our own food. And we don't eat lichen.
3. I want my money back.

We are humans, not reindeers. Act accordingly.
