Population Control - March 19, 2009, 08:10 AM

Since another thread got me thinking about this I went on a search of my own and definitely learned a few things about my own misconceptions I guess you could say.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_population

This shows that in 1000 AD world pop was 3 million
By 1950 it was 2.5 billion.
Today it is 6.7 billion.

World birth has leveled off at around 137 million per year yet death is only 56 million per year and are expected to increase to 90 million per year by 2050. Since births outnumber deaths our population is expected to be around 9 billion by 2040.

With that said it would seem from my first assumptions the answer would be to control births, let more die etc. But from this other article it seems that the solution may not be so "simple". http://www.salon.com/env/feature/200...ation_control/

One example from this article says that even though the US is only roughly 300 million our impact on life-support systems are more than China and India. It also goes on to say that just reducing the amount per household doesn't reduce their affect on the environment, infact when less are in one house they tend to use more!

The Salon article is what got me really thinking and a good read if anyone is interested! Have at it.

We have to get off the rock, but I think destruction will come before then.
