Can the World Afford 10 Billion People?

Recently, the world has been celebrating or marking the birth of the 7th billion person. The world’s population is 7 billion, there are 7 billion mouths to feed. The distribution of population have remained constant for over thousands of years. India and China is where most people lived say 3000 years ago and the trend remains the same even in present day.

Strangely we have gone from 1 billion in 1800 to 7 in 2011. India now has a lot more people than the whole world’s did back in year 1800.

The population is supposed to top up and stabilize at 10 billion people.

I guess the world (not earth) needs to stop reproducing itself into oblivion.

Check this video that shows how the population has been growing and why:

What kind of pressure will 10 billion people put on agriculture, water resources, forests lands and endangered species? Do drop in your comments.
