The world has too many people.
The world is going to run out of food.
People are bad, because they are using up the world’s resources.
Thus goes the mantra of the Left. Thus says Planned Parenthood. Thus says the UN Population Fund.
But are they right? Not according to the Population Research Institute. They point out that as the world’s population has risen, so has per capita income. So has health and longevity.
In the 19th century, four out ten kids died before they turned five. Can you imagine that? And yet today, it is less than six percent.
Two-hundred years ago, life expectancy was less than 30 years. Today it is moving beyond sixty nine years.
The Population Research Institute (PRI) says enough grain is produced for every person on earth to eat 3500 calories a day.
There is a demographic problem, but it’s not what you think. The world’s population is going to begin declining in fifty years according to PRI. As Quiner’s Diner has pointed out in the past, the replacement birth rate is declining in much of the world.
The replacement birth rate is defined as 2.1 children per woman. Less than that and the population begins to decline. That is where we’re at with 80 countries who represent over half the world’s population. The United Nation’s “low variant projection” says the world population will grow from 7 billion to 8 billion by 2040 and then begin to decline.
Countries like Russia, Japan, Italy, Germany, and Spain are in a demographic spiral with Europe and Japan projected to lose half of their populations by 2100.
Don’t believe the Left that their anti-baby policies are the savior of the world when, in fact, they are its death.
