I was reading "50 Predictions" that will take place in 2020. I'm wondering how this one will impact life overall? What do you think might be a result of this 81 million increase?

Do you have a link to the publication or website?


Are they saying this is a Net Increase?


I also wonder where on the globe most of this increase will occur?


I think the USA population growth is the lowest in nearly 100 years (despite the efforts of Mormons! ahhahahaha)


I did see on the Census Bureau website that mixed race individuals were the fastest growth demographic at 36% increase in the past 10 years. This probably explains why so many commercials on TV are so mixed race. Marketers pay attention to demographic data in their targeting.

I look at it this way - Even though I get older each year, I don't much care for the prospect of not having any more BDs.
Other than perhaps millions if NOT billions, being killed off, I see no alternative to population growth. Some guy in GA wrote a list on a rock...

there's still plenty of room

larger populations allows economy of scale and more specialists, which results in greater scientific, medical, and engineering advancements

there's reasons to be doom and gloom, and frankly, declining Western civilization, due to reasons you can easily suspect, is a much scarier prospect. whereas in the east, their populations continue their meteoric rise

Population increase is bad, but this is even scarier.
Making a worm that can withstand 40,000 G's or be frozen and then thawed without damage live a few weeks longer isn't even close to making our bodies work for 200+ years.

But it is interesting. If we could get 20 or 30 years, with a body that ISN'T in the usual condition a 90 year old is...that would be something.:thumb:

Yes, that's scary. I would NOT enjoy the added years unless the years were age appropiate too.
Back to the original question...how do you think the increase might impact the population? I'd think it would depend upon the death rates being included/estimated as well in this figure.
So said, I think the excess might trigger more famine-like conditions. Otherwise, if the rate of deaths were NOT included, I'd think there wouldn't be much change overall.

Don't worry, these procedures will only be available to royalty.

You know, people like the Hildabeast, BO, Soros, etc...
more likely the Pentaverate. They meet tri-annually at a secret country mansion in Colorado known as "The Meadows". Membership includes: The Queen; The Vatican; The Gettys; The Rothschilds; and Colonel Sanders before he went teats up. They hadn't perfected this procedure in time to save the Colonel, with his wee, beady eyes and that smug look on his face, saying "Oh, you're gonna buy my fried chicken." Of course you're going to buy it, because he put an addictive chemical in it to make you crave it fortnightly!

Here is the clickable link >

https://www.msn.com/en-ca/lifestyle...hat-will-happen-in-2020/ss-BBYJbQJ?li=AAggxAX

I think that is called a click and bait site but somewhat interesting even though most of it was regarding entertainment and the "new" movies coming out mainly sequels. Guess Hollyweird cannot come up with original ideas very much but whatever makes them so much money.

To save many from wasting time clicking until you get to page / slide 37 here is what it says. >

"37. The world population will increase by around 81 million people.
Each year, the world population continues to rise as more people are born than die on our planet. While there were around 7,713,468,100 people in the world in 2019, in 2020, that number is projected to rise by about 81,330,639 individuals, putting our overall population at 7,794,798,739."

So not too far in the future there will be 8 Billion people on planet Earth. And possibly Ten Billion someday which if so I hope to still be around just to see what happens. Likely not anything real good. I mean how Many will it take to be over populated? Ten or Twenty Billion? Even five billion might be enough. So 81 million in one year is a lot but not much with Billions already.

I don't know the answer or solution. I just want to add that myself I have not contributed to any of this over population since I have never had children. One reason was that back in college in 1978 or so I realized that things were not going to get better and that I never wanted to bring children into this world. One more reason I guess I never married...

Any solutions to this would be nice to see. But some might not think that the world is over populated??

I am not real sure that there is still plenty of room.

I have traveled all over the USA especially All over the western USA where there are vast areas of land with no people. There is a reason for that mainly little or no water. No trees and other resources either.

But I understand what you are writing. And IF the large population or more sensible a sustainable population that can think, do and truly advance society and humanity in general.
But surely many know that is not happening and in most populated areas of the world truly are over populated with people who just want to keep living, breeding etc etc. I won't say most of the world is ignorant and uncaring but that might be possible? :rolleyes:

Some people's solution such as mine or at least I try, is to be as far away from over populated, over controlling etc. areas and in as remote an area as possible.

Even parts of Wyoming, the least populated state, in a big land area is too over populated for me. But much better than anywhere else I have seen. And Wyoming likely will not grow too much more although the big state to the south CO, is making things worse even for Wyoming.

Any solutions to what is being discussed in this thread would be great to see.

I think you're right in the sense that people tend to live where there are resources

I think my problem with accepting the arguments of those typically most vocal about overpopulation is that it all comes down to essentially one thing: convincing Westerners to not have children. To them I often say: "you first".

The places that have high density would be made more dense. Some places with low density could too. We have not even scratched the surface of what might be possible with underwater arcologies. there's room yet. there might come a day when there's no more room. but i bet God ends it all long before then
