I've been saying that for years.......I've been laughed at, spit at, actually come to blows with a few, alienated for it, ostracized but I kept my composer. So now......it's all starting to come to the light of day.It would not surprise me at all if some people in secretive labs in some countries are not working on another virus either to kill more efficiently ( that is more surely but more slowly) than covid and or to reduce women's child bearing capability to no more than two live births in a a lifetime.
It was 4 billion for me around high school age.When I was born , and I am just a few years younger than you, the world's population was only 2.5 billion.
Fortunately they are all expensive so used much less than they could be.And yet, periodically, the Scientist are coming up with new methods to have babies by other than normal means.
I have, for many years, advocated that there is only one single problem in the world, resulting ultimately in loass of resources and planet warming. Forget farting cows - there are too many people, by many millions!
I think the required number of people to disappear is probably 4 billion plus . Someone suggested, from data, years ago that the planet could support 3 billion at a US standard of living and 4 billion at a EU standard.Quote Tim " Overpopulation. The latest figures show that most countries are well below replacement rate now... except Nigeria for some reason ( that I am sure is being studied) So maybe that will solve itself. Examples Japan and Italy could lose nearly half their current population by 2100."
If there observations are correct - true. But not soon enough. By 2100 the world, unless there is a dramatic reversal, will already be in an state of no return. My poisy also did not convey the other side of the story. One of the main reasons for population growth is not so much "new arrivals" as , due to better conditions and care, increasing old age populations (count me in on that) - Also possibly the reason for oil rich Nigeria's statistics.
