What I Would Give to See This Clock Run Backwards

The only three clocks on that page that are important are the clocks showing

  • World Population Growth
  • Population Growth Today
  • Population Growth This Year

The only clocks I like to see going up are:

  • Deaths Today
  • Deaths This Year

Births Today  and Births This Year clocks will increase in numbers no matter what the world’s population is like. New babies are born every day and every year no matter what, no getting around that.
That World Population Growth clock is one of the most terrifying things I have seen in a long time. I am actually glad that I have maybe a few more decades here before I shuffle off this mortal coil. I don’t want to be around for the inevitable genocidal “correction” (similar to a stock market
“correction”).
Malthus was right, and Malthusianism is a hard and fast rule as good Newton’s or any other physical law. At some point, human population will simply grow too large and then mass war, starvation or disease will correct the numbers. It works precisely this way in Nature, and humans are nothing if not animals ourselves. Always remember, not only can’t you fool Mother Nature, but:
Mother Nature Always Bats Last.

  1. Do you think this will really happen: (taken from that site)
    “Nigeria’s population is expected to surpass the U.S. population in 2045 to become the third-most populous country in the world, starting to rival China by the end of the century, with almost 1 billion people in 2100. ”
    Because that sounds really, really scary. How can all those scammers and con artists fit in that relatively small country when the population starts nearing 1 f***ing billion?

    1. forget it…it was another of his typical “jokes”. One should inform Dr. McDowell (who really exists) about the fact that RD is using the doctor`s name for his “business”…

        1. he released a new video called “hahahahahaha”, “explaining” his new “joke”. Well, this time it was officially his revenge against the “racist bf community”…and – like always – against Randy F.

  2. The global total fertility rate is something like 2.5 or so. Its at or very near to replacement rate. The world has already reached ‘peak child’. In 2100 there wont be anymore children than there are now if current birth rates continue.
    All the remaining population growth that will take us from 7 billion to 10 billion will be due to a filling out of the age structure. So imagine an age pyramid where the bottom is fatter because there are more young than old; as the decades pass and the young ones age, the fat bottom will move upwards and fill out the top of the pyramid so its a like a block. Get it? That’s most of the population growth this century.
    The only place where fertility rates are significantly above replacement is in Africa.
    In the link below, move the tab across to see it change over time. As life expectancy increases, fertility rate falls- same pattern everywhere. Throughout most of human history, women had 6 kids and 2 survived. When all your kids have an excellent chance of survival, most people just have 2.
