If the human population peaks in the next 40 years, it won’t be because we’ve reached our limit…it will be because the messages regarding birth control and quality-of-life issues will have reached enough of the human population to lower the fertility rate below the replacement level of 2.1 lifetime births per woman.Sincerely,Robert Young

Possibly on Earth. But if we can make it out past living just on Earth by way of terraforming, then there would be a much higher limit to how many humans could be sustained at one given moment.
