Sense and Nonsense on Population
A breathless report on Yahoo News this evening: US population will hit 303 million January 1, 2008.
The sky is falling? Hardly.
I remember being convinced as a child that human beings would reproduce like rats and fill the earth.
Read America Alone by Mark Stein for a different view.
Better yet (and a lot quicker), look at the future world population calculator on www.poodwaddle.com. If you experiment with it, you'll find that human population will drop starting in about 80 years, and if it continued to drop, we'll be out of people in about 505 years!
