Duggar Mom Slams Overpopulation Theory

Duggar Mom Slams Overpopulation Theory, Michelle Duggar, reality TV star and mother of 19, doesn’t believe in overpopulation. In a Web interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network, the star of TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting” remarked that the idea of overpopulation isn’t accurate.

“Well, first off, the idea of overpopulation is not accurate because really the entire population of the world, if they were stretched shoulder to shoulder, could fit within the city limits of Jacksonville,” Duggar said. The land area of Jacksonville is between 758 and 885 square miles. The world population is a little over 7 billion, which would equal about 8,500,000 people per square mile.

But overpopulation, according to experts, isn’t just about the number of people on a piece of land. James Hopkins’ site on the human population crisis states, “Overpopulation applies much more so to the number of people in an area exceeding the resources and the carrying capacity of the environment necessary to sustain human activities.”
