America is already running into water shortages, we could change the usage of water from agricultural to consumption but then we are changing the industries of the nation to something else. The danger is becoming like India or China, too large a population that it becomes a burden.BTW, I think that both the US and Europe are each capable of sustaining an influx of up to several hundred million additional people just as long as this influx occurs extremely gradually rather than immediately. Of course, this is not to mention the ethnic and/or religious tensions that this could result in, but this could be avoided by simply having Whites in the US and Europe reproduce much more and thus themselves be the main driving force behind population growth in both of these territories.
Also the Soviets did have problems feeding the population throughout the cold war. Much of this was because of inefficient farming policies, corruption and fear of trade with the west. More people would only compound this.
