Under 2 billion within 100 years

I just finished reading The World Without Us by Alan Weisman. This is one of the most interesting books I have ever read. It delves into many topics that I find fascinating.

Toward the end of the book, he mentions a UN study that shows that if each fertile woman on Earth were to limit herself to giving birth to just one child, the population of the Earth would be less than 2 billion within 100 years. The current population is over 6 billion, but the number of humans that the planet can sustain in balance with nature is 2 billion (this is also covered in the book).

It's something to consider. I am not having kids, so maybe I could sell my right to have a kid, like a carbon offset? Haha.

Chicago Fire opens on J St

We went to the new Chicago Fire midtown location last night for dinner. And what I have to say is: it's really yummy! Everything we ate was really, really tasty. The staff was pleasant and professional, friendly but not invasive. Loved it!

We had:
Baked Artichoke: Really yummy; infused with butter and lemon and covered in parmesean cheese, so not the healthiest.
House Salad with Italian Dressing: A really tasty, no-frills salad.
Deep Dish Chicago Fire Combo Pizza: Italian sausage, pepperoni, green pepper, onion, mushroom. Really, really yummy! What more can I say?

Chicago Fire is located on J Street between 24th and 25th Streets. Go there and eat yummy food! Yay!
