7,000,000,000 people on 31 October 2011
500,000,000 survivors by 2050?
Eco-illiterate demographers talk of 10 billion!
For our demographers and other visionary but ecologically illiterate "leaders" our world is getter bigger and bigger.
Any resource problems are simple "challenges",
which we will certainly master with Hope-Optimism-Technology.
For HOT people there are no real problems. More people? Eight billion? Nine billion? Ten Billion? 2011, 2030, 2050, the 21st century?
A problem? Why?
We draw our graphs and projections into the future, as simple as that.
We will produce more with less, on a growing planet.
Technology and Genetically Modified Organisms will produce ever higher food crops.
We'll invent new ways to meet growing demands by more and more people. After all: the earth is growing!
Humanity will be singing and dancing on a planet that is just there for them...
