Nine Billion People by 2050


[Media Source*]

(Reuters)

The human race is expected to swell from the current 6.5 billion to 9.1 billion people by 2050, with populations exploding in hungry developing countries and stagnating in rich nations, the United Nations predicted on Thursday.


The increase of 2.6 billion people is equivalent to the combined populations of China and India today, according to the U.N. Population Division's "2004 Revision" report. The growth is projected to be fastest in poor countries already struggling to feed their people.

Great. I can hear the calls for Birth Control now. Aaaarrrrgggghhhh!

In rich nations, declining birth rates means little or no population growth. An exception is the United States, which benefits from a relatively high number of immigrants, who have more children in the first generation.


Industrial countries as a whole are expected to see little change in their total population of 1.2 billion. In fact, a decline is forecast by 2050 in Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia and other states of the former Soviet Union.

Well, I guess that is "good" although our population has always increased since they began taking records. Technology always seems to be ahead of population, as farm food seems to be pretty cheap now-a-days as the government actually has to install "price floors" that inflate the price of some food products. Subsidies to many farms would increase if necessary in order to feed the starving masses of the future (if that many existed. Only if a natural disaster occurred (such as a meteor impact or a wandering planet dragging Earth away from the Sun) would I be worried about the world population and how much it would take to feed them. Selah!
