For the scoops to make drop offs for Soylent Green production?

soylent green can be only a very temporary solution.

if once the water is extracted from the "rawmaterial", there are about 40 to 60 pound of material left.

that feeds one human for about a month.

so population would shrink to less than one tenth within a year.

It is a bit faster than that...

The present population of the earth RIGHT NOW is...

6,669,207,116 people.

according to:

http://www.census.gov/ipc/www/popclockworld.html at the moment I checked (It goes up about 15 every 5 seconds.)

So for the next month 1/2 of them are food for the other half, leaving 3,334,603,559 people with full tummys.

Half of that 3,334,603,558 feeds the other half in the 2nd month.

Half of the remaining 1,667,301,779 feed the other half in the 3rd month.

Half of the remaining 833,650,889 feed the other half in the 4th month.

(The population has shrunk by about 10 percent of the original about here.)

Half of the remaining 416,825,444 feed the other half in the 5th month.

Half of the remaining 208,412,722 feed the other half in the 6th month.

Half of the remaining 104,206,361 feed the other half in the 7th month.

(The population has shrunk to about 10 percent of the original about here.)

Half of the remaining 52,103,180 feed the other half in the 8th month.

Half of the remaining 26,051,590 feed the other half in the 9th month.

Half of the remaining 13,025,795 feed the other half in the 10th month.

Half of the remaining 6,512,897 feed the other half in the 11th month.

Half of the remaining 3,256,448 feed other half in the 12 month.

At the end of 1 year the population of the earth would be 1,628,224 (of the original 6,669,207,117) which is 0.024 percent.

Of course that assumes their are no more births.

If we assume the present birth rate then the following table results:
