World population projected to reach 9.8 billion in 2050, and 11.2 billion in 2100 – says UN

New York, 21 June – The current world population of 7.6 billion is expected to reach 8.6 billion in 2030, 9.8 billion in 2050 and 11.2 billion in 2100, according to a new United Nations report being launched today. With roughly 83 million people being added to the world’s population every year, the upward trend in population size is expected to continue, even assuming that fertility levels will continue to decline...

The new projections include some notable findings at the country level. China (with 1.4 billion inhabitants) and India (1.3 billion inhabitants) remain the two most populous countries, comprising 19 and 18% of the total global population. In roughly seven years, or around 2024, the population of India is expected to surpass that of China.
Among the ten largest countries worldwide, Nigeria is growing the most rapidly. Consequently, the population of Nigeria, currently the world’s 7th largest, is projected to surpass that of the United States and become the third largest country in the world shortly before 2050.
Most of the global increase is attributable to a small number of countries
From 2017 to 2050, it is expected that half of the world’s population growth will be concentrated in just nine countries: India, Nigeria, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Pakistan, Ethiopia, the United Republic of Tanzania, the United States of America, Uganda and Indonesia (ordered by their expected contribution to total growth).

Some interesting but scary stuff from the UN on Global Population growth over the rest of this Century

One thing is certain - Europe is Doomed

India, China, Nigeria and the USA will be the primary World Powers in population statistics

- but even China is struggling now as its dramatic increase in living standards and curbs on human reproduction take effect

Even by 2050 the effect will be profound

In Ireland we are already barely replacing our population

- if we place further limits on our reproduction then the inevitable result is

- the End of the Irish Nation.

Change is always scary. Some are more scared than others. When the world population stops seeing itself through the limitations of nationality and race , but as humanity , then we will feel less apprehensive about change and be at peace with ourselves and each other.

Precisely why we need immigration control. Culture determines much of why some succeed and some fail. If you import people from inferior cultures then eventually the host nation becomes more third world than first. In some parts of Europe, those conditions already exist. What an act of vandalism. Those responsible, the political classes, should be hanging from bridges and lamp posts. They are literally attacking their own children.

That is just not the way the World works DM

Africa is exploding population wise

- now why that is not necessarily a bad thing in itself it does mean that population pressures are going to drive a certain proportion of people to try their luck elsewhere

If Europe's population is falling

- and Africa's is rising

- then it is inevitable that millions there will make the journey to Europe in the decades to come

The effects of that will be profound

When the political classes want your opinion they'll give it to you.

The Irish Including myself have been trying our luck elsewhere for generations . By and large we have left most places the better for it.

Over the next 40 years humanity will need to consume as much food stuffs as the sum of all previous harvests in history combined.

Very shallow line of argument

- stop living in the past

- its the Future we have to consider

The population of Africa is rising by 3.5 Million a MONTH!

Nigeria will be the third most populous Nation on the Planet by 2050

- 33 years from now

Maybe 33 years ago [1984] we could ignore Africa

- but not anymore

BTW its not just about Africa

And we're not going to do that using huge tracts of land to raise animals for meat.

There is some good news here.

World population is not at the exploaive growth rate it took on since 1945. If anything, it will continue to fall from its peak around 1960.

These figures are on the medium growth path.



By continuing the reduction of poverty (which drives high birthrate), and empowerment of women, this trend can be improved upon. We are talking about 90 years time, so there is time for a trend to change for the better.

The sort of doom-mongering that the OP indulges in is counter-productive.

That in its self will bring fresh problems

- as caring for the Aged eats into the resources of the younger generations

If Abortion becomes the 'Norm' here for the Unwanted Unborn

- how long before Euthanasia becomes the 'Norm' for the Unwanted Terminally Ill?

Immigration control and proper measures put in place to ensure we don't become little Lagos or similar are vital and will be the main topic governments will get elected on over the coming decades. With proper governance and security Ireland is in a unique position to hold the line and hold the line we must.

It won't come to that. Western style social welfare systems will have been flooded and broken. Then will come plague - they don't even have to bio-engineer any Super Influenza, we are a fragile species after all, and population numbers will drop to sustainable levels. Agenda 21. When the dust settles, the remaining herd will be easily controlled in human settlement zones.

Judging by last night's Prime Time those third world slums have already taken root here, small wonder when we will have 110,000 new PPS numbers issued to people moving here this year. At least 30,000 housing units would be needed to service that figure alone.

The ability of the economic system to feed , house , clothe , these massive numbers will eventually lead to a catastrophe. A massive cull. The population projections will never happen. Malthus was correct.
