Too many people?

Can this planet really sustain 9 billion people by 2050? This is the predicted total from the 6.6 billion, and growing, of today. Recently, I was sent this website, the World Clock. The figures shown here are very alarming, even more alarming than inevitable climate change.

I cetrtainly agree with this headline and am interested in the statistical data provided. I believe that there are a great number of ways in which Life on Earth is threatered, not just Global Warming, all of which are exaserpated by the alarming levels of Population Densities, but this is seldom highlighted by the Media. I imagine that this situation arises from the supposed need for 'political correctness', which means that many of the important issues are not faced.
How do other people feel?
