It has been postulated that sometime in the future humans are going to have to curb their population growth. This makes sense, and I think inherently anyone who has ever thought about it has come to the same conclusion. Nevertheless, where do you draw the line in the sand? Do you attempt to have draconian measures as they did in China with their one child strategy? And what if some nations choose to limit their population and other nations don’t? What will happen then I ask? Okay so let’s talk about this for a moment because the issue came up at our think tank recently.
Indeed, judging by history I would submit to you that if some nations have mandatory birth control or population control while other nations do not, then more people will travel to those other nations to have babies, or even migrate to live there. You may not know this, but birth tourism is something that China had to deal with from 1979 to 2011 during the enforcement of their one-child policy or family planning policy. Since couples could only have 1 child, which over that period prevented 400 million births, some would go to Hong Kong, Macau, and other places where those rules were exempt. About 40% of the population was subject to these rules. What to do at sentosa singapore
If you’d like to know just how serious the problem of overpopulation of the planet will be in the year 2050, 2075, 2100 or even 2150 there’s a very good book I’d like to recommend you read; “Humans: An Endangered Species – The Only Solution” by Jason G. Brent, Self-Published, Las Vegas, NV, 2012, 121 pages, ISBN: 978-0-9854129-6.
Now this book may disturb you a little bit in its conclusions, but if you consider the 7 billion people on the planet today, obviously if you doubled that, and then doubled it again, and then one more time, then we would be eating ourselves out of house and home, and there would be far too many people on the planet. So do we curb our population growth today, slow it down a bit, allow people to live longer, and everything will be okay – or do we negate the reality that we have a problem and keep going and doing what we’ve been doing in the past?
You see, if we don’t fix the problem we are going to have shortages of resources, food, clean water, health, energy, housing, and everything else. In which case human populations will collapse on their own accord due to the physical laws of nature – so we can either do something about it, or wait for the verdict from nature, and I guarantee you won’t like it when it all does hit the fan. Please consider all this and think on it.
