THE MALTHUSIANS NEVER TIRE OF BEING WRONG:

Half The World Lives On 1% Of The World's Land (Ben Schiller, 1/16/16, Co.Exist)

Though the world has 7.5 billion people in it already, most places are far from overcrowded. Look at these maps created by Max Galka. The yellow parts show areas where population density is more than 900 people per square mile. The black areas show areas with less than 900 people per square mile.

As you can see: there is a lot more black. In fact, all the yellow on the maps account more than half of the global population, despite being only 1% of the overall land space.
