Go here: http://www.cato.org/ and type in "resources". You'll find a lot of information to the contrary.
I aint even mad today, not being argumentative, but there are other opinoins as to the resource issue. I heard only 3% of the world's land surface area is populated. Personally I do believe there are about 5 billion too many useless eaters on the planet; I don't have any answers...
I went through a blackout after Irene, and now again this year from Sandy. It is plainly apparent that the comforts I took for granted for a lifetime can be gone in the blink of an eye. If they can't take our right to self-protection they'll make an end run and starve us out of the will to fight for our country. supermarket shelves can be emptied in a day or three, they can cut the municipal water and NG supplies too if it comes to it.
At my age and my degree of laziness, and the densely populated area I live in; I'm not gonna be able to make a concerted effort to survive unless I hook up with a survival community out in the boonies somewhere.
It's unbelievable to consider the changes that have taken place in our beloved country just the last five or six years.
