Carrying Capacity

One of the foremost acolytes of the "Gaeia" movement, British scientist James Lovelock, suggests that, in not even the very worst case scenario, the capacity for Earth to support human life could be reduced by global climate change and planetary warming to not many more than a billion people.

Bring out your dead!

If true, somehow every single one of the survivors, man, woman, and child, would have to figure out away to dispose of 7 human carcasses.

Look around you. Where would you put 'em?
