The myth of overpopulation

The land area of Texas is approximately 695,662 square kilometers, and the estimated global population is around 7.9 billion people.

Land area of Texas: approximately 695,662 square kilometers
Global population: approximately 7.9 billion people (as of January 2022)

Now, calculate the average land area per person:

Average Land Area per Person = Land Area of Texas / Global Population

Substitute in the values:

Average Land Area per Person ≈ 0.088 square kilometers/person

Converting to square meters:

Average Land Area per Person (in square meters) ≈ 88 square meters/person

So, on average, if you were to distribute the land area of Texas equally among the global population, each person would have approximately 88 square meters of land.
