ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Over the past 90 years, from about 1926 until recently, the U.S. population has increased from 117 million to 320-plus million. As I understand it, during approximately the same period, from about 1927 until today, the world population has increased from two billion to an estimated 7.5 billion. I wonder, what is the estimated maximum number of humans that Earth can sustain? I pray that at some time in the near future, for the sake of humankind in general and my progeny in particular, the number of humans on the planet stabilizes so that some unforeseen, overpopulation-led catastrophe does not occur.
