It is sad that us humans keep destroying and abusing natural resources for our own pursuits. In a short span of time, we have seen new buildings being built in an old empty land so that people will have some place to live or visit. Population is growing every year. Will we ran out of food to feed ourselves with, you ask? Natural resources, perhaps, but with the kind of technology we have today, it is only a matter of time before someone comes up with something. One example of this is mycoprotein.

That's what I say. People forget to take into account technological developments. Whenever we run into a problem so global, we always have people offering solutions. I have read about skyscraper farms, for example. You can actually farm vertically. If land is an issue, you can just build taller and taller. It's nice in a city too because then the food is already right there. You don't need to pay much for shipping. That's for mentioning mycoprotein. I think I heard of it before, but it was nice to read up on it a bit.

because human beings are the most perfect than other creatures. humans always think, humans are always developing, humans always improve their abilities in all things. For that people will always try to be better in the economic, social, environmental, state.

There are technological ways to solve this. Have you heard of Space X and its plan to colonize another planet? Then there’s also digital living in a virtual realm, courtesy of the Virtnernity Project (both of which are discussed here: https://www.reddit.com/r/transhumanism/comments/91g7yd/should_we_focus_on_space_colonization_or_digital/
I don’t know all the details, but I’ve heard that research is on- going. What do you think about these options to solve our population problem?

Despite the use of various contraceptives, the world population keeps ballooning. Will there come a time that all food will be extinct and we cannot feed ourselves or what is the way forward because we are tilling all the virgin lands etc .
We not only could, we will outstrip our ability to feed everybody if the our population keeps increasing rapidly and if our population keeps on growing exponentially, we will inevitably reach the point where there is physically no way to grow enough food for everyone. On our journey to that point, we will lay waste to most of the remaining wild areas of Earth, burning down the forests and filling in the swamps to create more farmland, and in the process causing a mass extinction. We are already well down that path, but have not yet reached the point of no return

I believe that there is enough food for everyone.You look at the map how much unprocessed land in the world.If we look at the food basket of man and sum up it is safe to say that there will be no hunger.This is provided that there will be no global cataclysm.

I heard there is a theory in biology that claims that as the population reaches some critical point, the species start encountering problems with their health, including infertility, cancer and other states hypothetically used by "nature" to regulate the number of species. Unfortunately, I can't remember the name of the theory. Should someone remember the theory, please, comment on it, will you?
Thanks!

Time will come that all our resources would be in its limit. We cannot accomodate all the people anymore. People growth can cause lead us to scarcity of resources which is bad because when the time comes all of us would fight for foods, water, land and etc. It would be a survival of the fittest again or worse no one will survive anymore. As time passes by our world are becoming more toxic because of the environmental stresses that we human induced, it caused people growth which impact our livings. So I therefore conclude that as long as human is increasing in numbers we are approaching the time that all people ask when, the end of the world. Okay Im going too far, but seriously this will result to pollution and more that will lead us to toxic world and even the world would give up itself.

It is very interesting the rate at which world population is growing. Contraceptives and the rest haven't even helped much. Though in my opinion, that wasn't the major focus of creating them. Either ways, I don't believe there's any cause for alarm. Human population was always bound to grow. And I am highly confident that if we take proper care of the Earth, it is rich enough to cater for each and everyone of us. I mean there's so much untilled land all over the world but nobody is willing to work them. We all like to migrate to the same developed regions and choke ourselves out. We should pay more attention to agriculture too because if we don't take care of our basic needs, we won't even be alive to pursue the secondary ones that we all love so much.

Human population will certainly stop increasing because at some future point every atom of carbon will be used in a human.

At that point the only way to have a continued increase would be to make humans progressively smaller.

I think food isn't the main issue. Technological improvements are always making less materials be enough for more people (transgenic  food, for an example). But no one can create pieces of land, and doesn't matter how large the Texas state is, sooner or later the world's population won't fit there anymore.

Also, many of these people having more and more children can't give them a decent life. It's a miserable life, they don't really live, instead just exist. So this uncontrolled increasement of the population is insane and in the end those who have a more ruled and organized life will have to pay the price for the problematic people actions. Only a strong family planning policy can solve this through contraceptive methods, psychological monitoring and why not even a financial advisor?

I think it will be hard to deal with this problem. It will be hard to feed whole population. One way is to grow many genemodified products but food like this isn't healthy. I think it need time to update ways of growing genemodified products.

the use of various contraceptives, the world population keeps ballooning there come a time that all food will be extinct and we cannot feed ourselves or what is the way forward because we are tilling all the virgin lands...population will surely have it's toll on the natural resources and depletion of the natural resources will surely make things harder for the generations to come.. we don't find alternative solutions to the growing number of problems,human civilization is at risk....

I guess if there will be more new born births in the future and less Dying let say adult, we will be congested and will produce more carbon dioxide that speeds up the destruction of ozone layers that causes heat that will melt Ice land and will make our oceans bigger that will make our low land sink. In short it'll be a disaster. It will have domino effects in anyway we could've see it.

This is definitely an issue we will have to be dealt with. Overpopulation also adds fuel to the fire when it comes to the environment's health. Feeding everyone and making sure resources are adequate often calls for desperate measures. I think there will be a point within the next 100 years where you literally can't survive on planet earth if you don't have the money to protect yourself. Many places will no longer be habitable if the current trends continue.
