Hans Rosling is a great communicator. Here’s his documentary about human population.
Our world reached ‘peak child’ around 2000 because people are using more birth control. Now children aren’t dying so much as they used to. Therefore the world’s population is still rising, but we can expect ‘peak human’ around 2050. After that, population is likely to stay at around 9 billion.
That’s still a lot of people! Plenty for farmers and growers to feed. Aptly, I’m grateful to a farmer, my fellow blogger generationyfarmer for drawing attention to this.
