I didn't mean that we lack resources as such, but there are certain resources, like water, for one, which in Australia has become a serious issue...or at least, that is what the media has led most of us to believe.
That's an interesting thing to picture the world's population standing side by side and fitting into a space the size of a small country like Hong Kong.
During my discussion with this person, we talked about how, in the U.S so much food is wasted on a daily basis, while kids starve in third world countries, which is vile. Why isn't more done to at least address this issue of waste and put it to good use?
I know it won't totally solve the problems those people have, but at least it will put good food to good use, instead of to waste.
Are you saying that you don't believe there are too many people here ALG?
