You're having reading comprehension issues. Hint: Google is a poor
future trend extrapolator. It doesn't give you a nice plot of Earth 
ecosystem's carrying capacity. If you rely on the past and
the current present to be a good predictor of the future, and
there is a different regime ahead, you will only get surprises
of the bad kind. Poor planning and short-term thinking is what
got us into this tight spot in the first place.

See, all is dandy, then. We don't have to do anything.
The future will be better than the past. Any famines will
be acts of God. Nobody could have anticipated them, couldn't they?
