World Population: Bad (Quasi-)News


11 billion by 2100?

Looks like: maybe.

Possibly as high as 17 billion.

Africa apparently will be hit hardest.

Alas, it is politically incorrect to be concerned about this problem... My strategy is to point out (as the linked article does) that two major responses are increasing access to birth control and educating women. That might take the edge off liberal hesitance to take the problem seriously. I hate resorting to such rhetorical tactics...but it's true, they're good solutions, so there's that. I don't know of any way to get conservatives to take the problem seriously.
