We have a people problem

Random Observations of Life

We have a problem. A people problem to be precise.

As I have been discussing of late, it is clear the human locusts are overgrazing the planet. We need to slow our breeding.

Based on United Nations projections, global population growth isn’t slowing as fast as we need.

Year 1950 1975 2000 2025 2050
Population
(‘000s)
2,519,495.1 4,065,508.1 6,056,714.9 7,936,740.8 9,322,251.2
