Maybe it's different in US, but Europa is stuffed with cheap stuff from Asia region. The less money someone has, the more of this cheep stuff ends up
in the shopping basket.
What I've said about what I'm doing, I've meant it ironically. Look, there is no other way, at least for me, not to buy that stuff. You mistaken me
with some bankster or so...
in my time here on the big blue planet, i've seen two types. one says get rid of all the useless eaters, so me and my kids can have it all. provided
off the backs of the ones left that we exploit. then there's the ones, who are to ugly inside and out, and can't get and keep a man/ woman, but are
not willing to check out on their own. these are the ones who try to live forever, and are usually more selfish than the latter.
OK, if this is the world you live in....
there must be also some third group, I'm definitely different than you so can't follow you into any of this groups...
with that being said, why not lead by example, and stop being part of the population/ consumption problem that you seem to be worried about for the
rest of the world, and check out. just think there would less overpopulation/over-consumption in the word if you would just volunteer to be one of the
leaders and it would be a great start to solving this dilemma. hell if you have friends or family, that feel the same way ask them... no demand them
to join you in this endeavor, and leave this world, so it will become a better place for those of us that wish to remain.
why should I ??? Is it possible you have an quite false impression on me ?
Please let me clear something out, the first two lines my thread are provocative on purpose.
I maybe should have put them into question marks, forcing them to sound more sarcastic, but I didn't.
I wanted to see the reaction.
...highlighting the growing pressures on the environment, global food supplies, and energy resources.
Current UN projections show a continued increase in population in the near future (but a steady decline in the population growth rate), with the
global population expected to reach between 8.3 and 10.9 billion by 2050. UN Population Division estimates for the year 2150 range between 3.2
and 24.8 billion; mathematical modeling supports the lower estimate. Some analysts have questioned the sustainability of further world
population growth, highlighting the growing pressures on the environment, global food supplies, and energy resources.
this means nothing less than WAR. Think about it, global food supplies and energy resources will stimulate the shrink in population, more people die
than will be born.
How do you reduce predicted 11 billion in 2050 to just 3.2 in just 100 Years ??
that's three generations, you would need an one kid policy on the whole world !! How do you do that???
You could let some big group out of food so they starve to dead, wouldn't that lead into a war as well?
Therefore I see the prediction of 24.8 more realistic, however, WW3 over resources is unescapable in that case.
Using linear interpolation and extrapolation of UNDESA population estimates, the world population has doubled, or will double, in the following years
(with two different starting points). Note how, during the 2nd millennium, each doubling took roughly half as long as the previous doubling, fitting
the hyperbolic growth model mentioned above. However, after 2025 it is unlikely that there will be another doubling of the global population in the
again... "after 2025 it is unlikely that there will be another doubling of the global population in the 21st century"
how do they come to this conclusion ?? Does someone think people will somehow realize 2 or more kids is an bead idea for the world, I doubt that.
During the 20th century, the global population saw its greatest increase in known history, rising from about 1.6 billion in 1900 to over 6 billion in
2000. This increase was due to a number of factors, including the lessening of the mortality rate in many countries by improved sanitation and medical
advances, and a massive increase in agricultural productivity attributed to the Green Revolution.
this says exactly why the population will grow to predicted 24 billion in 2150, or do you think people suddenly stop develop in India, China and other
overpopulated countries. That everyone stops drinking clean water, taking the medicine or eat.
It's worse, they will use more resources and this will lead into conflicts... therefore WW3
for now I see no alternative, do you ?
please let me know how to solve this problem if you know it.
