The Earth adds about 85 million people each year. They then create 195 million pounds of Co2 each day just by breathing.

About 150,000 of them will not get enough to eat each day. They will all get sick just like us but 40 million+ will never see a professional doctor.

If we could house 850 of these people on one acre lots that would destroy 100,000 acres of Co2 absorbing plants per year. They will have contaminated water, feces, chemicals and piles of garbage.

Scientists have just calculated that due to loss of trees because of harvesting and fires these last few years that any further harvesting, processing, delivering and construction of lumber will create more Co2 than all the remaining forests of the world can absorb.

COP 26 Glasgow Climate Summit environmentalists calculate that about $10 trillion is needed to get all developing countries off oil and coal.

One big problem, they are not developing anymore. They are collapsing under the weight of their populations and ruled by corrupt dangerous rulers who don't believe we have a climate crisis and can't be trusted with our borrowed money.
