The planet is not enough people

Pew Research Center summed up a long study that showed that childbearing in the United States fell to a record low - 63,2 child per 1000 women of childbearing age. Analyst Jason Riley noticesthat fanatics of population control remain enthusiastic, but in fact there is no reason for joy.

Other countries are inclined to see economic prosperity in the long run, which is related, among other things, to a reduction in the birth rate, but everything is exactly the opposite: the tendency for childbirth to decline can threaten future prosperity. So says Miriam Jordan from the Center "Drink".

These studies show that the decline in fertility is partially offset by the fertility of women of foreign origin. They tend to have more children than Native Americans. The Pew report states that from 2007 to 2010. The total number of births in the United States has decreased by 7%, and there has also been a decline among immigrants - by 13%.

In America, the relationship between the birth rate and economic conditions has long been revealed. People have fewer children in depressive periods.

Earlier in May, 2012, this problem was voiced in the USA by Stephen Mosher, world recognized authority on population issues, a well-known writer, lecturer and president of the Institute for Demographic Research (PRI). 20 May He made a statementin which he showed that all anti-natal programs funded by the United States should be immediately replaced by pronatal ones.

“It doesn’t matter if we are talking about reproductive health, family planning, or population control programs,” Mosher said. - They all have one effect: the birth rate is being reduced in countries that are already dying. Such programs make a bad problem worse. ”

Same mosher last year explained The “empty cradle crisis” is the predominance of an individualistic view of life in developed countries. Couples living in the dynamic conditions of megacities do not consider de-production to be an economically advantageous occupation. This is the question that, according to S. Mosher, makes many people reconsider their attitude towards the production of a “new generation of taxpayers”:

“Why spend half the family income to bring a child into this world who, at least in material terms, never pays for the investment?”

As a result, as soon as people reach a certain level of education and well-being, the country's birth rates rush down. Mosher emphasizes at the same time that this trend now determines the demographic situation in the countries of the “third world”:

"Countries dependent on the United States and Europe financially were forced to implement a number of anti-natal programs, ranging from distributing free contraceptives to forced sterilization."

According to Professor Jack Goldstone, in Germany and Italy, the number of working-age people in the share of pensioners in 2011 was represented in the proportion 2: 1 (the so-called "pre-crisis" ratio).

But in the United States, Russia, Poland and Romania, this ratio is expressed in numbers 3: 1. These are healthy numbers. However, after less than forty years, by the 2050 year, the revealed ratio will change in the direction of decreasing the working population.

The leading position among the OSCE countries today is occupied by Turkey and Kazakhstan: there, one pensioner actually contains 6-7 young taxpayers. Experts predict their decrease by 2030 to 3 people.

“The OSCE member states will definitely need migrants in the future,” says Goldstone. “At the same time, if the need for labor is now met by migrants from the OSCE countries themselves - mainly from the east, this status quo will not be possible to maintain in the future.”

The professor emphasizes that Europe will have to change its attitude towards migrants. They should be part of European society, not live in their neighborhoods.

While analysts and experts are sounding the alarm and calling for migration integration, the myth of the terrible threats of overpopulation does not cease to sound on the planet.

Journalist J. Wibes пишетthat the ruling classes continue to perpetuate the inhuman myth of "overpopulation", and the situation on the planet continues to take shape of a completely different kind.

In fact, people are rapidly approaching the point where the birth rate will fall so low that there will be a new threat in the world - a shortage of population.

This unfortunate fact has been discussed for many years in alternative media and among worthy scholars who had the courage to speak out against the scientific and political establishment. Today this question has acquired great importance.

After all, the number of births around the world has been drastically reduced over the past two decades. If this trend continues, then the world's population will quickly reach a peak, and then, having passed the point of the highest ascent, will begin to slide into a bottomless abyss, ending in the disappearance of Homo sapiens.

Already many times throughout stories (more precisely, over the past few centuries), when the human population increased significantly, the ruling classes explained to the people that population growth would lead to chaos and a massive lack of resources.

Of course, says Weibs, such predictions will never come true, because the human population of the Earth actually has very little to do with the lack of resources. The planet could easily withstand even 7 billions of people. People need only respect each other and take care of nature.

More than a year ago, Igor Beloborodov, director of the Institute for Demographic Studies saidthat the scale of the planet 7 billion people - a drop in the ocean. All 7 billion earthlings can be placed in Australia, giving each earthman a 1 square kilometer. In this case, about 600 million square meters. km of Australian land would have remained empty. (The area of ​​Australia, by the way, 7.618.000 sq. Km).

And according to the calculations of Professor of the Polytechnic University of Bucharest Viorel Badescu, the planet is able to withstand 1,3 quadrillion people - however, it was already a thermodynamic limit, when the planet could not dissipate the heat emitted by people.

In October, 2011, when the media honored the born seven billionth inhabitant of the planet, Igor Beloborodov said:

“Surely this billion was the last. Fertility falls on all continents. In Iran today, the European birth rate, Turkey is approaching this level, the countries of the Maghreb - Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco - also have almost a European birth rate. ”

The director of the Institute for Demographic Studies expressed the fear that excessive birth control efforts could lead to the extinction of humanity.

At the same time, the world also suffers from a shortage of the female population.

British demographers explained last year, that over the next 50 years on the planet will decrease the number of adult women. On average, for every 100 female babies, 104-106 boys are in the world. This is an average.

In India and Vietnam, about 112 boys account for 100 girls. In China, more 20 boys are born than girls, and in some areas even 30. This problem is acute in Azerbaijan, Georgia, Serbia, and Bosnia.

Demographers believe that there are not enough 160 million women on the planet right now. Why? Many families, having learned that they will have a girl, decide to have an abortion. Up to 160 million female embryos die per year.

The acute shortage of adult women in China is already led to the fact that in search of brides citizens began to emigrate to Vietnam and Korea. Others move to Western countries. Another option for Chinese men is to lure foreign women to the PRC.

In China and India, there is a ban on abortions due to the sex of the child, but officials argue that the law is observed poorly.

Interestingly, in China, a country with a record population, today there is an acute shortage of people. This was recently announced by experts from the China Development Research Foundation. Researchers called upon the authorities of the country to stop the action of the state program on birth control “One family - one child”.

According to demographers, to correct the crisis situation, it is necessary to allow couples to have two children each before 2015.

If the authorities do not listen, China will face a catastrophic labor shortage and a massive aging of the population. The economy will be in crisis.

Nevertheless, the PRC government plans to continue the policy of tight birth control until 2020.

As for Russia, at the end of last month, OECD economists recognizedthat the reduction of labor and the increase in wages caused by it in Russia will move the country's economy forward for a long time.

According to experts, at the heart of Russia's growth is the concept of the Ministry of Economic Development: the population will decline, and wages due to a shortage of workers will increase. Consumption will grow accordingly. Thus, to move the economy of Russia will be consumer demand, which will grow due to a shortage of labor. Employers will have to constantly increase employee wages. Consumption growth will be supported by the expansion of consumer lending.

Nevertheless, if you look beyond these experts, it is clear that Russia is waiting for the same as China: the inevitable aging of the population. The point is not in its number. The workforce will be represented by young migrant workers from Tajikistan rather than elderly indigenous people. So the big question is whose salaries will rise in the country and whom will bankers lend to.

A separate factor in the extinction of the population on the planet can serve as high technology. Indeed, in the near future, women and men will love not each other, but ... robots.

Experts futurological center "Transhumanity" claim, that "sex bots" will allow more often to get an orgasm, which will increase the longevity of the person. After half a century, sex bots will become a reality. They will first replace prostitution and trafficking in girls, and later turn into a common thing in every home - like a refrigerator or a TV. Both normal people and various “genders”, including pedophiles, whose advanced and innovative sex industry will also try to accommodate, can enjoy sex with a robot. Well, and who will be interested in the boring fertility theme in the middle of the XXI century, he will have to turn to the test tube.

By the end of the century it will reach the point that, having met a real girl on the street, the guy will ask her: “Hey, Barbie! Where is your button? ”

It is terrible to imagine that instead of the problem of lack of population in the world, the topic of the fight for the rights of sex robots will be discussed ...

        Maybe yes, and maybe no. It depends on how civilization develops. After all the sensations occur in the human brain, it processes signals from nerve endings. Five sensory organs with a single command center and plus the sixth, called intuition, are they the main thing, and to which a person does not have full access due to the fact that at one time he was directed along the wrong path of development of civilization. Or maybe there are six of them, maybe we simply don’t even know about the other possibilities of a person? The person in his development came to the conclusion that one hand movement can destroy, turn into ashes a house, a city, an entire civilization. And create with a hand movement? Maybe this is the way? Fiction? Where is the limit? Where are we going? Who are we? And why are we here? By ourselves we are developing civilization or there is a guiding and directing force ? What is it? What is its ultimate goal?

      and this figure considers square kilometers

      It depends on the level of demand and energy costs of technology.
      If it is necessary to consider the level of life as a personal house of several floors, with full-glass windows in the entire facade, from the basement to the roof stuffed with smart appliances, several super-expensive cars, two three yachts and a personal superjet, then the Earth, with the current development of technology, will be able to support no more than one hundred million such residents.
      And if on the territory of the square kilometer that Beloborodov spoke of, you would place a solar power station, a modest house for living, not a show-off, a field for cereals and potatoes, a small pond with fish, ducks, geese, chickens for 3-4 cows, etc. etc. That such a square kilometer will feed not even one person but a large family.
      It is clear that "somewhere else" it will be necessary to produce at least these solar panels and agricultural tools. That is why they mention "today's level of technology" But it does not stand still? It's growing, isn't it? The efficiency of the batteries increases, the price seems to be falling. Therefore, in the question of the survival of mankind, the main role is played not by the physical impossibility of the survival of a large number of people, but by the political will of the snickering Bilderberg-Wall Street minority, I just want to say ...

    Amsterdam authorities intend to open in the city the world's first brothel with prostitute robots.
    Robotic prostitutes will be absolutely similar to humans, and not only externally - they will even be able to maintain a simple conversation. Their skeleton is made of high-strength metal alloys, and the skin and muscles are made of elastic silicone.
    The mechanical priestesses of love will be able to work 24 hours a day. In addition, thanks to them it will be possible to solve the problem of sexually transmitted infections. Two scientists from New Zealand predicted that by 2050 a prostitute robot may become commonplace. Futurologist Jan Yeman and sexologist Michel Mars believe that sex with robots and its legalization will only benefit people. belay
    Scientists pointed out that robotic prostitutes will be made from antimicrobial fibers, which will exclude the transmission of genital infections. In addition, clients of such priestesses of love will not feel guilty about their partner, because they did not have sex with a real person.
    This year it became known about the creation of the world's first sex robot - a rubber doll with dark hair named Roxxxy can move like a person and is able to maintain a conversation. The cost of the doll varies from 7 to 9 thousand dollars. Europe will have to change its attitude towards migrants. They should article part of European society, and not live in their neighborhoods. Well, right, these "Arabs" will have to do at least something, otherwise the Gay Europeans will have no time, they will fuck their robo-dolls day and night ... what

    And if you look a little further than your nose? Already in this century, life expectancy may be extended to 200-300 years, with a working life, and maybe even to immortality. Research is underway and the results are already many. So the problem of fertility will be solved by increasing the lifespan of people. Everything in history goes the natural way. At the end of the 19th century, scientists assured that in a hundred years the planet would be drowned in manure from the increased number of cattle and horse-drawn vehicles necessary to ensure the livelihoods of the population. And then suddenly they came up with vehicles, intensified agriculture and everything was magically resolved. But the fact that the gene pools of entire peoples that have developed over centuries are lost and eroded is really regrettable. At the same time, the population of Tajikistan or Turkey remains mono-ethnic, while Europeans are rapidly blackening and turning yellow. once in the Caucasus and Central Asia there lived exclusively Caucasians, the same modern Uzbeks are Asian-Caucasoid mestizos, apparently Russians will turn into the same thing, since everything suits everyone.

    Overpopulation of the planet is one of the myths imposed by the West. Currently, 10% of land is used for food cultivation (there is another 25% of land - orchards and pastures, but their role is more modest). For example, if you irrigate the Sahara and the Arabian Peninsula, you can feed the whole planet again. If you drain all the swamps in the Amazon pool, you can feed the whole planet again. And how many deserts and swamps are there? Even the biological resources of the oceans that are practically not used now, the area of ​​the oceans is two and a half times larger than the area of ​​all land and 25 times more than all arable land, the oceans have no mountains, deserts, swamps, and 50 to 70 percent of the surface of the seas can be used to grow biomass oceans.

Drain all the swamps, cut down all the rainforests and all will be happy. What about destroyed ecosystems? With the entry of the entire wild world in the red book? If we consider humanity as insects that first devour everything around, and when nothing remains and each other, then everything is true. And what about the minerals? How much will oil and energy cost if the number of people grows by a factor of two? What about fresh water, which is already lacking in many regions? With the drying up of rivers, lakes and even seas due to increased water needs? Central Asia has already been irrigated and received a lunar landscape instead of the Aral Sea.

Millions of blacks are starving because of the predatory policies of transnational corporations, before the arrival of the white man lived somehow? How to irrigate - truly an idiot's question - the surface of the Earth is 70 percent water, you don't have enough water? If we consider a person as a person, then this very person has too high self-esteem, at this stage we will not be able to do anything to the planet, well, we will spoil the ecology, people will die out, nature will not die out, other species will appear for which the new “spoiled” ecology will be native. What's wrong with minerals? people will live more modestly, they will get used to it, they will not ride a Bentley, but a trolleybus. fresh water - what's wrong with it? The whole ocean is in your hands, desalinate. The Aral Sea has been drying up for five hundred years, it will not dry up in any way, and man-made reasons appeared only a hundred years ago. We have all the dinosaurs in the red book (edition 60 million years BC) and that proves that.

          Yes, fortunately I don’t have a file consciousness to find something in Google and rejoice like a baby who discovered the obvious truth. Desalination of sea water? Although there is a primitive understanding of what this process is? How many types of salts and metals are dissolved in sea water? Probably not worth talking about the presence of isotopes and heavy water in it. Moreover, the oceans have long turned into a landfill ranging from ordinary waste products to oil products, this is especially pronounced in the coastal waters. Are there technologies for desalination of sea water to the level of safe consumption and irrigation? NO! In Kazakhstan, during the Soviet Union, desalinated water was already used for consumption by the population, after which the number of cancer patients rose sharply. In all countries using desalination, such water is used only for technical purposes. The cost of such water is also astronomical. What other common truths should clarify fragile minds?

Expensive - in any case more expensive than just drilling a hole in the ground and pumping. I brought deserts and swamps as an example, there are more favorable lands, which are far from black soil, but they will give a certain harvest. At this level of the population, the methods I have listed are not in demand, but as the population grows, and as a consequence of the growth in demand for food and its rise in price, they will recall the "exotic" methods of obtaining food, water and energy.

              Well, you can irrigate by spending tremendous money, only in the sand will not grow anything. If you do not believe me, then you can try at home, even the most ugly black soil needs to be fertilized from time to time. And as for water, this is a fallacy, only 1% of all water reserves can be consumed by a person, everything else is dirty, salty and industrial water.
              And about overpopulation, I think there is such a problem and its causes are Indians, Chinese and Arabs.

Well, on the last question, you are right, we are playing on the demographic confrontation, because our "soldiers" are bad, they do not want to give birth to children.

    The planet does not have enough people ... But why, then, there are so many idiots around? .. And especially in such a field of activity as the so-called. "big politics". And in our way, too. How sad it is for you and me ...

      Alas, there is a direct correlation: the more such idiots, the less chance we have of surviving

    In the article: "All 7 billion earthlings can be accommodated in Australia, giving each earthling 1 square kilometer. In this case, about 600 million square kilometers of Australian land would remain empty." - check, in Australia there are only 7 million 600 thousand square kilometers.

    We need to make a pension system according to the number of children. I gave birth to one, you receive 10-15% of the pension, the second 20-30, the third 60-90 .... And the demographic and pension problems will be immediately resolved. Well, who did not give birth at all, the minimum allowance .... smile

      And plus the tax on childlessness: in the family there is one child: + 10% to taxes; in a family of 2 children - standard taxes; 3 children - regular taxes + family assistance: parents receive a double salary and an apartment out of turn on an installment plan. And it is imperative to prohibit abortion, an exception - if it is known that the neglected child has serious illnesses.
      So look, and the birth rate problem will be solved, and the number of children in orphanages will be reduced.

    Many families, having learned that they will have a girl, decide to have an abortion. Up to 160 million female embryos die per year.
    You can’t find out the sex of the child and have an abortion. You can find out exactly the sex of the child only in the 2nd half of pregnancy, and then this is murder.
    The article is complete nonsense. Each decline is followed by a rise.

    Everything is very SIMPLE and very SAD. Only a DISEASED woman gives birth a lot. Before minus, name a developed country with ZAMSIPIROVANNYE women and a large birth rate.
    What are all the conditions in Sweden (up to the Swedish family) and the results are not particularly visible.

    Joke. Are you satisfied with the work? Judging by the fact that after work I do not want anything, then YES.

    Couples living in the dynamic conditions of megacities do not consider child production to be an economically viable occupation.

    He is of course an authority, a writer, a lecturer and a president, but maybe this is his "crooked" look, not couples.
    The decline in childbearing depending on the economy is not a property of cities or America, but of the entire Western civilization, I think so. And the matter may not be in the "economic disadvantage", but in the greater responsibility of people, in a more serious approach to childbirth. Indeed, with a bad economy, children are more difficult to raise, and if you give birth to them at the same rate, then it will be a bunch of hungry, dirty, uneducated children. Both children and parents will be unhappy. Couples understand this and restrain their instincts (I'm not talking about sex).
    And the "economic disadvantage" may be his perverse view. A responsibility.
    It does not apply to the East, there are other views.

    Already many times throughout history (more precisely, over the past few centuries), when the human population has increased significantly, the ruling classes have explained to the people that population growth will lead to chaos and a massive lack of resources.

    It turns out that now the next "many times", the governments will explain, the population will continue to grow. By analogy with the previous times.
    Why is the birth rate falling around the world? But look at the economy - sucks people abstain. Where is falling USA, Europe - this is a typical dependence on the economy. It will be better - they will give birth.

    And there may also be a certain cyclical nature in such global processes, as regards girls. Here you need to look at statistics for a couple of hundred years, link with wars, crises, eclipses. In general, to study comprehensively, and not to panic from any change.

    The Pew report states that from 2007 to 2010. total number of births in the USA decreased by 7%

    Here, the beginning of the crisis) The consciousness of the masses tempered the ardor. Maybe it is necessary not to integrate emigrants, but to make the economy normal, not blown out? And there are the kids, as after the rain climb. But this is a titanic work, it’s easier for them to cry out about the lack of subjects, and wreak havoc on the world.

    By the way, the crisis in Russia did not hit hard, so our birth rate is growing.

      Dear, what nonsense did you write? You never know where the views, the desire to give birth to children comes from the egoism of individuals in the consumer society, because the funds that will need to be spent on children can be spent on yourself beloved. The crisis of fertility is not related to the economic; it is a crisis in the brain, selfishness, and irresponsibility of a Western person.

        It’s strange, it doesn’t have a relationship, but for some reason it corresponds very accurately to time and place.
        Although, I do not deny the egoism of the consumer. After all, they have a consumer society. But he would not rule out responsibility. I think people who are guided by reason did not get out of their way.
        There may well be several factors, but economic, I think, is quite significant.

          Yes, responsibility cannot be excluded, but the responsibility is not to justify your egoism with this responsibility, the responsibility is to take up the upbringing and maintenance of several children, at least three.

    I was surprised to read the article ...
    The planet is not enough people

    If there are not enough people in specific countries, this does not mean that there is not enough globally on the whole planet, on the contrary, in 2011 the population reached 7 billion people, and by 2100 there will be 10 billion, if of course there are global disasters (World War II or new epidemics of unknown diseases) ... the planet is already lacking fresh water and food for people ... food prices are rising all the time all over the world and soon there will be wars not for oil but for food and water ....
    And according to the calculations of the professor of the Polytechnic University of Bucharest, Viorel Badescu, the planet is able to withstand 1,3 quadrillion people - True, it was already a question of the thermodynamic limit when the planet will not be able to dissipate the heat radiated by people.

    rare nonsense .. laughing this Romanian professor is studying demography in terms of thermodynamics ...
    about sex bots liked the last part with humor ... but the article "-" in general ....
    Here is a more objective picture ....
    We can say that mankind has taken seven billion leaps and bounds. If in 1650 the population of the Earth was 500 million people, then after a century and a half a billionth inhabitant was born on the planet, and the farther, the population grew faster. Less than a century it took for the population of the Earth to double. Only 43 years passed, and the earthlings became already three billion, and after 15 years - already four. After another 12 years, we became five billion, and the 6 billionth resident was born in 1999.

    Record-breakers in terms of population, of course, China and India. Only in these two countries live more than a third of the world's population. The United States is in third place, Russia in ninth, and Japan closes the top ten most populated countries.

    Today, Africa is the main supplier of new inhabitants of the planet, and Niger leads in the birth rate. Next are Uganda, Mali, Zambia, Ethiopia. Closes the top ten Malawi. India has 84th place, Brazil has 109th, USA has 149th, China and France share 160th position, Russia is on 174th place.

    Today, the United Arab Emirates and one of the poorest countries in the world - the tiny Republic of Burundi, located in Central Africa, are leading in terms of population growth.

    According to the UN, this year the birth rate will be about 135 million people, and mortality - about 57 million. Thus, the natural population growth of the Earth will be about 78 million people.

    According to some forecasts, by the end of the 10st century, the Earth’s population may exceed the line of XNUMX billion people, however, recently the world population growth rate has decreased, and the process of stabilization of indicators is beginning. We can hope that we will avoid the apocalyptic scenario of overpopulation of the planet.
