The state of Texas contains 261,232 square miles of land (0.46% of the world's total) and has a population of 29,360,759 people. This amounts to a population density of 112 people per square mile. If all of the world's 7.8 billion people moved to Texas, the population density would be 29,219 people per square mile. In comparison, Brooklyn, New York covers 81 square miles and has a population of 2,559,903 people. This amounts to a population density of 31,603 people per square mile, or 8% more than the state of TX if everyone in the world moved there. For centuries, certain scholars and activists have predicted catastrophic consequences from "overpopulation," but actual outcomes have been the polar opposite of their predictions.
