Remember when this was supposed to happen back in the 70's, according to Ehrlich? I was all a'feared then too!

But it is happening. Maybe you stopped paying attention,, or your short attention span.


Happening then, happening now, happening in the future, if you are a doom zealot, all you ever see is doom, regardless of reality. I recommend reality, but that is just me. I know where I am writing this, and the ratio of zealots to regular folks, do your type of comment isn't a surprise.

I found this great article that explains how to disengage and lose faith in the Dominant World Culture while staying positive, proactive and engaged in the world around you. It truly serves as a guide to the coming future for everyone who will be around at that time. http://www.filmsforaction.org/articles/ ... -dark-age/

We cannot continue to grow in a finite space

As we consider the Sussex County Comprehensive Plan, please read what I wrote, and what appeared in The Cape Gazette (Nov. 2007), 10 years ago. It is readily apparent that we must better appreciate the land, open space and natural resources, and the needs of people. As Dr. Seuss wisely conveyed in The Lorax, we simply cannot keep “biggering and biggering” with limited resources and finite space. As we consider growth and energy in these weeks and try to plan for the future, we hope all of us well appreciate two truths, ones inescapable as gravity itself: that population is central to nearly all societal issues, and that nature and what it provides need to be better understood and appreciated. We need to understand population growth and its bearing on the land. The land area in Sussex County is fixed, as it

FWIW I used this story on another forum where they were discussing a new bridge across the Chesapeake in this general vicinity.

Half the world’s population reaching below replacement ferti

Unread postby AdamB » Wed 27 Dec 2017, 20:13:18

According to the most recent UN estimates (United Nations 2017), almost one half of the world’s population lives in countries with below replacement fertility (BRF), i.e. with a total fertility rate (TFR) below 2.1 births per woman. Of these, one quarter have TFRs close to the replacement level, i.e. between 1.8 and 2.1; the other three-quarters have really low fertility, below 1.8 births per woman. Low-fertility countries are generally grouped into clusters. The main clusters are in East Asia, Southern Europe, the German-speaking countries of Western Europe, and all the former socialist countries of Central and Eastern Europe (Table 1). In fact, contemporary fertility around the globe is lower than it has ever been. Since the middle of the 20th century, childbearing has declined by 50 percent: 50 to 60 years ago women in developed and developing countries combined had on

.... and the other half is still adding about 80 million humans a year. What do they call that? "Breeders Paradox"?

A answer to our news topic.

The answer to over population is NOT migration => every place on this planet is NOW over populated.

Proof : Earth population on its surface P(e)> 11 humans/km²

The only solution is decline of population to a sustainable level or migrate into space to get new "Lebensraum" :!: :idea:

CHOICE!

Like Antarctica? Or Siberia? Or seafloor, which is definitely far more hospitable than space?

Population explosion: Difficult choices lie ahead
*****************



Currently, Nigeria is unable to support its population. While the population is mushrooming alarmingly, the economy is declining sharply. In 2014, the rebased economy had a GDP of $568 billion, data from the World Bank stated. With recession still haunting it, the economy diminished to $375.8 billion in 2017. Indeed, this is just 0.61 per cent of the global GDP. In contrast, Nigeria’s population is 2.43 per cent of the global population of 7.6 billion. Clearly, there is a gross mismatch between the economy and the rising population.

Really, the situation appears hopeless. A new report last week by the Brookings Institution stated chillingly that 88 million of Nigerian people have fallen into extreme poverty, from 80 million a few months earlier. Thus, Nigeria depressingly remains the poverty capital of the world. The NBS states that youth unemployment is now 52.65 per cent; 13.2 million children – the highest in the world – of school age are not receiving education.

When this masses move there is only one solution : WAR!

The alternative is famine in your homeland.

SO I WOULD ORDER OPEN FIRE!
