The recently passed Hans Rosling was the pre-eminent population statistician for the UN.
"Why world population will never exceed 11 billon."
Carrying capacity is not a static number; it is always changing. And for humans it changes by technology. There is no magic number that equals too
many people. Our carrying capacity is elastic...
What changes, as Rosling points out here, is when mothers feel their children are safe, they increase time between pregnancies, and then lower the
total number of pregnancies. It's a survival mechanism, and will enable them to survive the population explosion.
