Earth’s Population May Soon Begin Declining: Study

According to a report by LiveScience, if current trends hold, Earth’s population may soon begin declining.

The world population continues to grow at an alarming rate that is breaking previous records every day. However, a new analysis claims that, in contrast to past predictions, the world’s population may only reach its peak in 2050 at 9 billion people.

According to a report by LiveScience, if current trends hold true, the world’s population, which is currently 7.96 billion, will reach an all-time high of 8.6 billion in the middle of the century before falling by almost 2 billion before the century’s end.

In the second scenario, called the Giant Leap, researchers estimate that population peaks at 8,5 billion people by around 2040 and declines to around 6 billion people by the end of the century, the researchers mentioned in a statement.

The latest data from the OECD reveals that Austria has the highest density of doctors among its population, topping the list.

  1. It could be that nature is weeding out the stupid people out of the gene pool. This could be a good thing.
