Discussion of the distribution and abundance of living organisms and how these properties are affected by interactions between the organisms and their environment
I saw a fascinating interview on TV a few months back (sorry, forget the guest, a population expert) who said that populations will rise throughout this century, probably to 8-9 billion.
After that, he expects population to drop. As example, native populations in Europe are dropping. When folks reach a certain level of wealth, they stop making so many babies.
In his opinion, we face an era of great risk through this century. After that, if we make it, he predicts a bright future.
Very possible. It all depends on whether or not most poorer countries can develop themselves, or if their own corruption and the rest of the world's apathy will continue to hold them back.
Generally speaking, the more people talk about "being saved," the further away they actually are from true salvation.

Seems like we are going into the meaning of life here...
By your logic then: Do we need food or water? Why do we need to survive? If we have no reason to survive other than to survive and reproduce then why survive?... Think harder. Think past what you have been told or past the simple puzzle pieces you have assembled in your head.
Yes. Or maybe you should have asked: Are humans curious? ...same answer - same question
Ahh i love primordial instincts. "im really strong, i can catch many buffalo"
If by definition a nerd is one who thinks about things then i am definately a nerd. Dont let cultural notions and attitudes sculpt your ideologies, keep thinking and learning.
-Lack of exercise
Note that the environment is 1 factor.
Where are you getting all these little things from? Science is 10% persuasion 90% evidence - not the other way around.
Sorry if i get a little worked up on doomsday-negative nancy issues.
A wise man once said to me:
"Build a man a fire, and he'll be warm for a day. Set a man on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life."
Only the fittest chickens cross the road.
In some countries ,like china, government is trying to control the population cause they're faced with lack of sources and in some European countries they're encouraging couples to have babies!
What happens to be the reason? The weather!? really, is there a reason related to geography or not?
No, the reason is, how much developed is the country and the density of population.
About the first, someone already spoke here. E.g. the European countries (the native population) is decreasing, as we do not have so many babies etc..., on the other hand, the Arabian world is still growing, and their population is also growing in the Europe...
About the first, if you had population of China (1.3 billions or more now?) spread all over the world, than you won't have any problem with the same number of people, whit which they have problem now. If you put the whole population of US to e.g. New Zealand, than you will have definitelly problems, althrough Americans live now quite well
Cis or trans? That's what matters.
I hope, you're not Chinese, but no, I don't. Maybe the big cities on the east coast, but if you take the country as whole, I think it's more like developing country...
Yeah, at least in Europe, it's true (Italien, Spain × Scandinavian:), but what about e.g. Japanese or other Asian tygers?
Cis or trans? That's what matters.
