When will we run out of space? Human Population Growth

So how many people is too many people. To get a feel for human population growth, we introduce it quickly with an example from fish tank – the guppies.

This video is far from a complete video on human population growth. It should serve as an introduction though and allow us to create other videos on more specific areas of human populations.

    yet we keep feeding africa and then even worse, keep importing them wholesale.

    Africans and Asians are in for a rude awakening in their pursuit of overpopulation when the North & South America have no more surplus to export. These regions will be famine belts.

    Dsula, showing the world that scumbags like him still exist, 50 years after the KKK went out of style.

    Dsula – My family was all white. Then my daughter-in-law arrived from Mali.That means she’s African – and she’s black, much blacker than Barack Obama …

    They’ve been married for two years now and she’s just part of the family. None of us have ever considered her to be an ‘import product’ as you suggest we should call such people.

    Racism is just wrong. My daughter dates black guys and I have no problem with that. She is Spanish living in Madrid. When I was finance manager in the family business one of my best friends was a black Cajun bill collector.

    One point Dsula brings up that I consider an issue here in the US is immigration. With BAU set to collapse our carrying capacity for a postmodern economy will be set back significantly. I do not think immigration needs to be promoted by business or politics. My girlfriend is Italian from the Alpine region. She has a green card. I am benefiting from immigration. I am mentioning this purely from the point of view that more people mean more suffering for all as BAU collapses.

    After all these centuries, the sexual degenerates who started this mess still haven’t learned that the Earth cannot support any more of them.

    They are the population problem.

    As was shown in an earlier post, there is plenty of room in the Southern Hemisphere, because they don’t each need a car, sewer systems, electrical grids, shopping malls, supermarkets, big box stores, electronics retailers, restaurants, dry cleaners, gas stations, police forces, government regulators, insurance/finance/banking corporations, drug stores, hospital medical centers, and on and on to survive and exist.

    The degenerates need all that stuff, which is why they always crying about too many people.

    Yeah, it’s too many people. Too many of them.

    Animals like to fuck
    Animals Like to eat

    this combined with ecological limits never ends well. It’s really that simple.

    The population fight was lost more than two centuries ago. Let’s not fight over this.
    I would like to live in a world where the population level and resource distribution were such that all basic human needs were available to everyone, with enough to spare to make it through bad times, and without permanent irreversible environmental damage as a consequence. That would likely be a world with 50-500 million people in it.
    I did my part to make it happen by having a Vasectomy and no children, therefore, I am true to my ideals; and that’s a good thing to be.
    Carpe Diem

    Davy – Immigration is gonna be very complex. It will of course be exploited for political advantage by some, considered necessary to keep the cost of labor down by certain corporations, be a racist or religious issue depending on regional circumstances, and generally continue to be a divisive issue to haul out whenever TPTB need a break.

    An example – Germany. Given their demographic profile, if they had not accepted Post-WWII immigration (Turkish, East European, etc), Germans would be an endangered species by the end of the 21st century.

    Geez, chill Noob! Read a book of poems or something. I’m sure you know Langston Hughes but there are plenty of other good ones out there. Try Emily Dickenson.

    The world adds 80 million more mouths to feed, clothe and provide energy and housing for every year. This is unsustainable.

    Gav, in the (potential)(likely)new normal of a collapsed BAU immigration will be a negative to any region in overshoot and most are currently. Imagine how bad the overshoot will be post BAU. Immigration will have the potential to destroy areas that may find relative stability post BAU. I agree with you on pre-collapse BAU we have grown up in.. Since collapse has not occurred I am speaking theory.

    Immigration, as I see it, is mostly a problem of inequity. I don’t think Mexicans are clamouring to get into the US because of the weather (though, since I’ve never been to Mexico, I couldn’t say that for sure.) The end of the oil age will also be the end of much of that inequity, though certainly not all. In all countries, even here in supposedly sparse Canada, huge population declines are in order. Allowing immigration, preventing it, whatever really won’t make any difference at all. My personal hope is that, in the NWO, regional boundaries will not be enforced and there will be less racism (as artificial a construct as the economic model creating the inequities in the first place.)

    Now, nobody disturb me, this is a good dream.

  16. Davy, Hermann, MO on Wed, 28th May 2014 6:18 am 

    MK, one clarification the inequality in the new normal (collapsed BAU) will not be so much about wealth inequality as survivability inequality. All locations will be destitute with hunger, cold, and lacking of most necessities. There will be locations that are unsurvivable with mass migrations possible. My point is a region and population that enters the collapse BAU with better carrying capacity will be more likely to survive. The new immigration of the collapsed BAU will not be as efficient as the current normal. It will be much harder to move and much easier to restrict. We are now talking survival so triage is in order. Some people will have to be sacrificed just like the stories of those stranded in a lifeboat. I used to be pro-immigration when I was pro-globalism in the early 80’s now I am against it for reason of above. Immigration in the new normal of a collapsed BAU becomes parasitic and hampers survivability, resilience, and sustainability.
