I am not quite sure what you are getting at here, one hand you are agreeing with me and the next you are claiming I am lying.... a bit confusing.
You said that people won't change - that is wrong, althoug biologically we are the same, we have changed massively in terms of science, technology, health, wellbeing and respect for each other.
Psychic are we?
No, the UN has already produced a projection of what will happen to world population numbers in 2050 and beyond. That is why I used the words "is projected".
No, because,as I explained, the issue is WORLD population, not LOCAL population.
Don't mention Malthus he has been proved wrong time and time again.
Sounds a little hypocritical to me, sounds like you also agree with me, but then try to over shadow your agreement with your disagreement - are you unsure about how you feel about this?
I just wonder, you feel that policies to reduce the people are needed for countries with over population, yet you say that over population is not a problem???
Hopefully I will at some time get through to you that the issue of whether the world as a whole has a problem if there are 7 billion, is a DIFFERENT ISSUE to whether individual LOCAL areas have too many people.
Suppose a man runs a fish farm. The fish breed successfully, so successfully that their numbers become too big for the pond. The farmer concludes that there are too many fish in his pond. Does that mean there are too many fish in the world? NO.
Suppose somebody lives in Frieburg, a city in Germany with excellent public transport and good quality of life. There is a big rock concert and it is sold out, and then some gatecrashers make their way in so that people are really pressing against each other. They think that there are too many people in the concert hall. Does that mean there are too many people in Frieburg? NO.
In Russia the birth rate is really low, below replacement level. One family in Moscow, however, has 10 children. The parents have a talk and agree that they have more than enough children already so they decide to use contraception. Does this mean that there are too many children in Russia? NO.
