    Obeng is too harsh on the idea that the general youth doesn’t accept that the world, or red line he drew, will table out. Relatively soon, actually. Planet Earth isn’t some infinite resource that an exponential population growth can sustain on. When the red line flattens out, humanity might have the chance to get that green line back up again.
