One fifth of the seven billion will be Muslim..,

If Africa is any indicator, we are doomed:

Quote:
In Africa alone, the population is expected to grow 1.1 billion, or 49 percent of the global projected growth, by 2050. Population is doubling every 20 years in some parts of Africa, making it impossible for communities to keep up with the growing demand for housing, roads, schools, and health clinics.

Quote:
In declaring its first famine zone since the phrase was formally defined by the UN in 2008, the world body said a total of 12 million people were battling hunger in the worst drought in the area in 60 years.
So, in answer to your question: "Are we prepared." Not even close to being prepared.
