Do you believe that by the year 2050 the world population will go into sharp decline?

"Paul Ehrlich, mentor of U.S. Vice President Al Gore, wrote a landmark book in 1968 called "The Population Bomb." He predicted, "We will breed ourselves into oblivion."

Based on this assumption, American taxpayers are spending billions of dollars on population control programs around the world -- most of them in Third World countries populated by people with brown, yellow, red and black skin.
There are now 6 billion people on Earth. The planet's population will most likely continue to climb until 2050, when it will peak at 9 billion. Other predictions have the world's population peaking at 7.5 billion in 2040. In either case, it will then go into a sharp decline. The world may soon be facing an under-population crisis -- a prospect that has all but escaped media scrutiny. "

  • Not to be morbid, but with the continuation of earthquakes that we seem to be having, I don't see over population being a problem.
