What does "nature" have to do with it? Humans have birth control measures and they are becoming more widespread as a greater percentage of the world's female population gets educated. Even in India the Fertility Rate has fallen below replacement rate. It is really only in African countries that Fertility Rates are well above replacement rates and in a few decades their population growth will no longer be enough to offset the decline in the rest of the world.I don't like this idea that the population will reach a figure and level out. Nature doesn't quite work that way.
