Some people say that there are about 7 billion people in the world and that you could fit all of those people into the several hundred square miles in the state of Texas. That is true; however, when you start thinking about feeding all of these people that's when you really start running into problems.
A 1200 steer, ½ inch fat, average muscling, yields a 750 pound carcass. The 750 pound carcass yields approximately: 490 pounds boneless trimmed beef. So we get about 500 pounds of meat from a typical cow.
So if each person is assigned a cow for their lifetime then they will have 500 pounds of beef to eat over the course of a 50 to 100 year lifetime. For the time being, we will assume a normal lifetime for a human being is between 50 and 100 years.

Hurricane Harvey is a currently active tropical cyclone that recently made landfall in Texas as a Category 4 hurricane. It is the first major hurricane to make landfall in the United States since Wilma in 2005, By the afternoon of August 26, more than 20 in (510 mm) of rain had fallen in the Corpus Christi metropolitan area. There are some sustained wins of up to 110 mph; however, gusts of wind up to 140 mph. There are about 300,000 people without power now. More than 24 inches of rain fell in 24 hours in Houston. The drone footage gives you the best feel for how much damage there has been. Water in some areas is 12 feet deep because of the flooding and the walls of water moving inland from the storm surges. Current estimates are at 40 billion dollars worth of damage from Hurricane Harvey. Wind damage, water damage and fires are causing the greatest physical harm.
Harvey dumped more rain than any other Hurricane that has hit the continental United States, some rainfall totals are more than 50 inches. A measurement of 51.88 in (1,318 mm) of rain during Hurricane Harvey holds the record for the highest precipitation total observed with a tropical cyclone in the contiguous United States.
Hurricane Irma is a category five hurricane that is approaching Florida at the time of the writing. This storm has 185 mph winds and mandatory evacuations are occuring in Florida. As many as 650,000 people have been evacuated from Florida at the time of writing. At one point there were about 7 million people in Florida without power.
It is the strongest hurricane ever recorded in the Atlantic basin outside the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico. It is tied as with another hurricane as the strongest landfalling cyclone on record in the Atlantic basin. Hurricane Irma caused 1 million people to lose power in Puerto Rico. U-Tube video from NPR on the storm Irma. Hurricane Irma PBS
Hurricane Maria devasted Puerto Rico as a category 5 hurricane with winds near 160 mph. Puerto Rico could be without power for 6 months and the country of Dominica was also hit very hard by the hurricane. The entire infrastructure of Puerto Rico has been destroyed; therefore, there is no electricity, no fuel, no cell service, no Internet and very little fresh water. Some estimate the damages in Puerto Rico to be about 80 billion dollars.
The damage in Puerto Rico is being called historic. The people in Puerto Rico are totally depended on supplies coming in from ships and planes. Maria was the most intense hurricane to hit Puerto Rico since 1928. There are about 3.4 million people in Puerto Rico who are without power. This natural disaster may have affected more people than any other disaster in history.

The Chetco Bar Fire is a wildfire currently burning in the Kalmiopsis Wilderness, Oregon, United States. The fire, which was caused by a lightning strike and first reported on July 12, 2017, has burned 182,292 acres (738 km2) as of September 10 and is currently 5% contained. The fire is so gigantic that it lights up the sky in a way that reminds of something from a science fiction movie.
Even the sixty minutes show is calling this the age of mega fires. We are now seeing fires many times greater than anything we have seen in the past. Watch the movie Mega Fires as seen by Sixty Minutes. Here is another move that talks about how the smaller fires are important for allowing the forest to get rid of the undergrowth.
This will stop the mega fires from coming into being. Meadows are also very important for keeping moisture in the soil which will also play a role in keeping the fires small. U.S WILDFIRES Forests Under FireFull Documentary HD In many places in the west we have lost the meadows and we have an overgrowth of trees and a drying of the soil which is creating the conditions for the mega fires.

The Ogallala Aquifer is a shallow water table aquifer located beneath the Great Plains in the United States. One of the world's largest aquifers, it underlies an area of approximately 174,000 mi� (450,000 km�) in portions of eight states: (South Dakota, Nebraska, Wyoming, Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Texas). Depletion is accelerating, with 2% lost between 2001 and 2009 alone. Certain aquifer zones are now empty; these areas will take over 6,000 years to replenish naturally through rainfall. The Ogallala used to have an average depth of 240 feet; however, today its average depth is just 80 feet. There is Texas town called Happy which has lost all of its water because of the depletion Ogallala Aquifer so their farmers can no longer farm the land there. The U.S. Department of Agriculture says that in 60 years the plains will be uneconomical to farm. We have built cities towns and farms around something that is unsustainable. About 71 percent of our water is used to irrigate our food.

The must be reduced and scaled to the planet. Is population control barbaric? If you look at this problem logically you will see that false humanitarianism is not the answer and actually makes the problem worse. Man on earth sometimes feels attacked personally when someone offers the truth. We must think and act in a logical manner. If there is a region where the population of a particular species is too high then disease or starvation takes over. Nature keeps its populations in balance; however, man can act contrary to this natural law.
Deforestation is clearing Earth's forests on a massive scale, often resulting in damage to the quality of the land. Forests still cover about 30 percent of the world's land area, but swaths the size of Panama are lost each and every year.
How to Create Peace and Harmony on Earth The Earth can only support, in total abundance, 529,000,000 human beings (same as the global population of the year 1700CE) when the factors such as the amount of fertile arable land available and the required amount per person are taken into account. Reducing the population to the sustainable level will solve two immediate problems on Earth: climate change (less people = less CO2 emissions = zero forest clearances = stabilisation of atmosphere) and food poverty (less people = less demand = more cheaply available food).
Research indicates that forests promote rain because of the turbulence that is created by the rough surface created by the trees. So what happens is the rains will move to other areas and blow over the deforested area. Here is good PDF that explains this very well Relationships between forests and weather.
The climates in area with forests tend to be more stabile. In general, there is a close correspondence between climate and vegetation. The major effect of a blanket of vegetation is to moderate most daily climatic changes, such as changes in temperature, humidity, and wind.
How forests promote warmth… The albedo of a surface is defined as the ratio of the radiation reflected from a surface to the total radiation falling on the surface. Forests have low albedos; The low albedo of forests means they absorb most of the incoming solar radiation and become warmer, and then warm the air around and above them. That is one way that forests can help things from becoming so cold in the winter. The forests moderate the weather.
The energy transferred from the forests to the surrounding air is called sensible heat, and involves a change of temperature.
In deforested areas there is a higher albedo than the forests and reflect more incoming solar energy. They have a lower surface roughness and leaf area index, and the moisture storage capacity of the ground is reduced
The destruction of the forests causes extremes in weather. Deforestation often results in a patchy landscape of fragmented forest. The edges of the forest fragments are prone to damage by wind and fire, and enhanced tree mortality owing to the stresses of the environment caused by the harsher climate – increased temperatures and lower humidity. The climate underneath an undisturbed tropical forest is stable, and is warm, humid and dark, with little wind. (see Relationships between forests and weather.)
The mechanisms described above show how forests can influence local and regional weather and climate. However, all forests have long-term global climate impacts via interactions with carbon dioxide (CO2) concentrations in the atmosphere The growth and spread of forests results in an uptake of CO2 which reduces its levels in the atmosphere and results in a net cooling.
Unquestionably, the climatic changes now evident will lead to increases in hurricane activity and other destructive natural events with catastrophic consequences. Typhoons and hurricanes are tearing, your works they throw down to Earth.
Concurrently, an artificially created greenhouse effect, generated by Man, is developing on a global scale that threatens life on Earth with total climatic collapse. Every type of unnatural catastrophe in nature directly results also from the human destruction mania. Meteorologists are today registering an increase in natural disasters, such as tropical hurricanes or cyclones, and abnormal droughts and floods.
The disaster has already, in fact, started and develops itself in the following days into a catastrophe. But what now has arisen is only the beginning of still worse to come, because now storms of all kinds and cyclones will rapidly increase in numbers, and indeed worldwide.
During the next few years, Man of Earth, the reins of the horse slip away from you; now death will be extremely familiar with you; you will neither find rest nor peace. Death destroys mankind, air and Earth, Due to scientific mountains of lies, by your politics and religion, which demand from you spiritless wages. Also powers of nature and of the cosmos, arm themselves to fight again the Anti-Logos. Searing suns� fires burn the nations; people ahungering run into death. Wild waters will heave many-a-place, you do not have any place of good refuge. Dams are breaking, the stormwind howls, the works of technic are being spoiled. The white death hits hard and gruesome; vengeance of nature, as penalty equal. Typhoons and hurricanes are tearing, your works they throw down to Earth
