You're mistaken, as I already showed you. The fact is that if the population reaches 9+ billion by 2050, no one knows how we will be able to feed that population. If we can't feed that population, then people begin to starve and the population goes down. As I already shared with you - plotted trends into the future show that a population of 2 billion in 2200 is just as likely as a population of over 12 billion. Further, numerous scientific papers analyzing consumption and production have suggested that 2 billion is the Earth's carrying capacity for industrial human society.

So 'no one' just means you, and as you don't dictate the debate or the remit of the debate, there's obviously no reason to limit ourselves to please you.
