The Worlds population has more than doubled in 50 years.

Within a few weeks the worlds population will reach 7 BILLION.

This interactive database and graph shows where you are in this vast human sea.

There are all sorts of implications of overpopulation, and if the growth rate continued there would inevitably have to be alterations to practices which would accommodate such populations.

Advice to UK government: inviting most of them here until they are jam packed coast to coast is not the answer.

interactive graph

Here is my graph result at 1971, if you enter your DOB it shows the position and data.


This graph shows your countries population growth


Interactive: how does the world's population at 7 billion affect you?

mods please move this to relevant forum, was supposed to be in global something not financial

Ahhh... screwing like rabbits on viagra we are. At least some are. While birthrates drop in several industrialized countries, they are on exponential rates in others. Still? We're not overcrowded. We're over-regulated and controlled is what it comes down to. The US used to export many food items in great surplus. Wheat alone was in SUCH surplus, it was literally used as a strategic resource for control and influence of other nations for a good part of the Cold War.

Now what? Food shortages... Fallow fields.... Restricted water to kill many fields which remain ..and this story is replayed all around the world with different versions for specifics. We're starving and feeling overcrowded because the deliberate manipulation and managment of resources by bean counters and pencil pushers has been a spectacular failure, across the board. There is something to look at though...and ponder, whenever someone gets to feeling like 7 billion is just overrunning the whole planet.




Some specific areas of the world are a bit tight for space...because people have this insane and inherent need to cluster like pack animals. Looking at the overall globe though? We inhabit and spoil a small % of it, over all. If only the % we use wasn't micromanaged into abject failure.

There were similar food mountains here in the UK, not now. All sorts of waste going on in farming and fishing industries, mostly due to supermarkets, government and EU regulations. Some are unbelievable.

The population has also exploded here due to immigration, so much so that most towns and cities are overcrowded, it is a small place, lots of hills, lots of land owned by gentry etc that is kept as fields or just land so all the houses are getting smaller, closer together, built to a lesser standard, schools are overcrowded, doctors surgeries and hospitals at crisis point, the infrastructure can't cope.

The rate of expansion from immigrants having more and more children is also alarming, for every immigrant a few children then their children having children etc. too many people for such a small country.

Indeed... I saw much the same thing for crowding while trucking across the United States. It's really incredible to see a nation from that perspective too. One day I'm in Los Angeles and you can't move without bumping into someone else while lines or ques for everything down to the bathroom aren't so uncommon (depending on location) to be worth remarking on specifically.

Then I'd cross out of the L.A. area and spent the next 1,100 miles with just 2 cities..and one only being a big town really, to see. California to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The most enjoyable part of my driving career as I had to look forward to. I40, I70 (extended across Nevada by Hwy 50), I80 and to a lesser extend I90 are all the same. Major crowding on the West coast ...to total emptiness and good country living for 1,000 miles or more. SUCH a contrast.

Sadly...it was also a good view to watch the endless fields of food crops turn to a combination of fallow fields farmers get paid NOT to grow on in many cases ...or food crops turning to Ethanol Corn crops (More of that, nationwide, than most would believe I think..and scary to watch happen)

Oh if only we had something in leadership positions that cared, even in passing, for the lives of the individuals. Total disregard and indifference is a brutal thing to see played out, isn't it?

If only there could be constructive planning with longevity in mind.

Some of the property here is from 1100's, 1500's 1700's etc and a lot are so much better quality, built to last, added to when required. The farming used to be sustainable, now chemical dependent.

Nuclear families used to the order of the day, families often sharing large houses or adding to the houses they already have. Now every generation moves individually and sets up family individually, grandparents keeping the same 2 / 3 / 4 + bedroom houses, people spending more and more on childcare etc. Society has altered in such a way that creates more expansion of building and less cohesiveness, in turn less caring attitudes and selfishness has become the order of the day as is clearly shown by governments.

Unsustainable immigration has created ghettos and more distrust of people and governments hence more of a ruined society.

It is a spiral that has to be stopped fast and rectified or the worlds governments would have riots and revolutions on their hands, oh wait perhaps that is their agenda for population control. Getting rid of those that think they have rights and replacing for those that don't care much for politics as long as they can get their families into a better country with more benefits.

You know the really tragic part? I honestly and in good faith cannot blame the immigrants themselves for what they're doing and how their mere presence in such numbers is tearing apart cultures and societies right now. Each individual is just looking for a better life as you or I would if in their position. It's easy and ...accurate.. to say they should stay home to work on change there and be the future they want to see ...but then, easier said than done and not everyone has the talent or energy to be a leader in such a thing either.

Still, for the conflict on looking at individual people among the mass, you are right in saying the mass itself is doing major harm across many nations because of the totally uncontrolled nature of it in so many areas now. Europe has North Africa and the Middle East. The U.S. has Mexico, South America and historically, China as sources. Australia has Indonesia and other places to deal with the waves from ....

What is tragic is that in running to find a better life, the individuals form the mass which insures all the problems they ran from WILL develop where they run to ....but there is no explaining that to the individual OR those who so strongly advocate for their right to be a part of the destructive mass, IMO.

It's a sad state of affairs, but I think It's uncontrollable now. I believe the government knows they are powerless to prevent mass immigration, due either to illegal immigration or our string pullers "The EU" dictating how we control our borders.

Anyway, if there's one thing I've realised, It's that there will never again be a peasants revolt of any kind whatsoever, ever again. People just don't have the balls nowadays, and there's too much hatred between different groups to stand together. All we can hope for is that the UK becomes a less desirable place to live...not too long to wait now then.

People should not be making babies like there is no tomorrow - there is a tomorrow.

And the way its going it will just be like an over populated swarm of flies pooping on each other. Sadly.

Pollution, and not enough homes, and a poorer economy world wide is what will accur if this continues.

Already its too much!

As a logical, critically thinking, responsible human, I felt it was my duty to present the world with a human who I strongly feel has the potential to help bring a positive influence to this world. Whether you find my opinions to be in line with yours, or you think I am a pompous lunatic, understand that the incentive for procreation was not merely ego extension, or a repercussion of circumstance, but a carefully planned for event for the betterment of the planet.

We named him Sagan, how bad could our intentions really be?

That being said.. a lot of people simply aren't forward thinking, and seem to messing it up for the rest of us. Hopefully a few of our kids will get together and get us the heck off of this rock before it decides to get rid of us.

Totally.

It is such an absurd situation, allowing the few from some places a better life at the expense of those already there and who's families have long worked hard and fought for the standard of life we have.

I don't blame the individuals either though the ethics and behaviour of many are questionable. Global politics has caused this mess and governments with no morals or backbone to speak of, following an evil agenda and not giving a damn about the people that pay for their expensive lifestyles.

Ugh, I totally would like to move somewhere decent, where there are true morals and nice land, nice people. The voices I hear outside my house daily, shouting down the street to each other are foreign, most of the people in the malls are foreign, and it just doesn't feel like the UK anymore. There is patriotism when there are big events like the queens jubilee or the olympic games but that isn't the same as feeling like you are living in a familiar land.
