A population pool as small as 2 GPeople will generate way more willing than
US (or anybody else) could absorb. The numbers are really quite astonishing; nothing we've been
so far familiar with.
It is interesting what these large (alas, no more where these came from)
populations pools will output, once they get up to speed.
2020? Suburbia is not irreversible; diets can be shifted to less animal
protein; 16 years hence should have the beginnings of an energy glut due to
cheap polymer/organic photovoltaics.
