Would a couple of acres of land per family fill up the globe?
At current growth rates the number of people on the planet will rise from 6.8 billion to 9.2 billion by 2050. That is almost one and a half times what it is today in less than two generations.
What is the real problem, over population or over condensation of population?
Area of earth’s land is 150,000,000Km². The world’s population is 7,000,000,000 people. If you divide that land area by number of people, each person should get 0.0214Km². One square kilometer is equal to 247.11 acres.
Therefore, 1 person should get 0.021 x 247.11 = 5.2 acres.
If you have a husband/wife and two children, then, your family should be entitled to 20.8 acres.
Are you already having your rightful share? If not, why are you not complaining?

Should people all over the world follow a one or two child per couple policy?
