Increasing Problem of Overpopulation: looking for way out

It took the mankind nearly 1800 years to increase its number to one billion. But the population needed only 100 years to grow more than 6 times due to the unprecedented demographic blast in the XX century.

According to the forecast of the French Demographic Studies Institute, in 2050 the world population will be 9 billion 701 million people! Let us admit that this is actually a disaster. Now people barely have enough natural resources. Every year gasoline, water and food grow in price. Ecology is becoming worse and worse, the millennial glaciers are melting, rivers and air are polluted. If we do not take tough measures, our children will suffocate from the overcrowding on the planet.

So today there are various ideas, laws, and organisations whose purpose is to address the issue of increasing overpopulation. Thus, many cite the example of the Chinese experience, which learned to restrain the number of its citizens. Today the Chinese could be $ 5 billion, but thanks to the program "One family - one child", stiff fines and the low cost of condoms, the country was able to balance the population growth.

There is quite crazy, in my opinion, the theory of the Golden billion. Can you imagine where you will get a few other billion? Destruction, disease, war, biological weapons, starvation are surely the tools to reduce the population to such numbers. But what will this Golden billion do after they cause irreparable damage to nature and the biosphere? Apparently, they will continue destroying each other.

Soothing is the research of Julian Simon, who argues that technology development, will allow in the future providing a decent standard of living for the population of any size: even for a billion, even 100 billion. According to the calculations of Russian scientists, population growth will continue for another 100 years. And as mankind has always been subject to systematic quality leaps, in the next century the situation will stabilise. The planet will be populated with 12 or 13 billion people and their population will not grow.

However, the brightest and most likely feasible is the prospect of colonising other planets. Then, a new galactic history of humanity will begin opening to the man new unimaginable possibilities.
