    ...There are many like Yoo in South Korea who have chosen either not to have children or not to marry. Other advanced countries have similar trends, but South Korea’s demographic crisis is much worse. South Korea’s statistics agency announced in September that the total fertility rate — the average number of babies born to each woman in their reproductive years — was 0.81 last year. That’s the world’s lowest for the third consecutive year.... ...Lee Sung-jai, a 75-year-old Seoul resident, said...“These days, I see some (unmarried) young women walking with dogs in strollers and saying they are their moms.

  • 8 billion people: How different the world would look if Neanderthals had prevailed

    In evolutionary terms, the human population has rocketed in seconds. The news that it has now reached 8 billion seems inexplicable when you think about our history.For 99% of the last million years of our existence, people rarely came across other humans. There were only around 10,000 Neanderthals living at any one time. Today, there are around 800,000 people in the same space that was occupied by one Neanderthal. What's more, since humans live in social groups, the next nearest Neanderthal group was probably well over 100km away. Finding a mate outside your own family was a challenge.Neanderthals were more...
  • World Economic Forum (WEF) leaders want to halve the world's population by 2050?

    The United Nations predicts that by 2050, there will be 9.6 billion people on the planet. That prediction is highly doubtful based on current events...and the fact that the U.N. itself is in cahoots with the World Economic Forum in exploring ways to dramatically reduce the number of humans on Earth, as part of the Great Reset. Numerous WEF leaders and contributors, such as Bill Gates, Klaus Schwab, Yuval Noah Harari, and "Sadhguru," have long and openly advocated for depopulation and are currently attempting to generate increased public support for quickly reducing the world's population. Sadhguru, a "yogi, mystic, visionary...
  • 8 billion humans: How population growth and climate change are connected as the ‘Anthropocene engine’ transforms the planet (only 8.23 years left)

    At first glance, the connections between the world’s growing population and climate change seem obvious. The more people we have on this planet, the larger their collective impact on the climate. However, a closer look with a longer time horizon reveals relationships between population size and climate change that can help us better understand both humanity’s predicament as the global population nears 8 billion people – a milestone the United Nations expects the world to hit on about Nov. 15, 2022. **SNIP** Using knowledge to reset the cycle again Every species, if left unchecked, would grow exponentially.

    During an interview with NBC News released on Friday, Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers (D) defended his goal of halving the state’s prison population and argued that “eventually, we should be looking to lower it as much as possible” by “making sure that we have options for people in the beginning.” NBC News Correspondent Shaquille Brewster asked, “We were with your opponent yesterday, and one thing that we heard is, back in 2018, you said that the idea of cutting the prison population in half was absolutely a worthy goal. My question for you is, is that still your goal now?...

    Olga Lopatkina paced around her basement in circles like a trapped animal. For more than a week, the Ukrainian mother had heard nothing from her six adopted children stranded in Mariupol, and she was going out of her mind with worry. (snip) The questions looped endlessly in her head: Should she try to rescue the children herself — and risk being killed, making them orphans yet again? Or should she campaign to get them out from afar — and risk them being killed or falling into the hands of the Russians? She had no idea her dilemma would lead her...

    As Hurricane Ian ripped its way across Florida, Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn) asserted "things like this wouldn't be happening if Democrats were in charge everywhere. Republicans are the ones who refuse to help Democrats save the climate. They insist that the prosperity enabled by low taxes, adequate supplies of energy, and widespread mobility are too valuable to sacrifice for the small fractions of carbon dioxide we're trying to eliminate. Voters can save themselves from the Hellish environment that will overtake us in the next century by electing Democrats across-the-board in November." Christina Pushaw, spokesperson for Gov. Ron DeSantis' reelection campaign,...

    A recent video of Muslims and Danes quarreling in Denmark is revealing in more ways than one—especially for those who are considering the merits of the Great Replacement theory. In the video, one Muslim man can be heard yelling the following words to a Dane: We have five children, you only have one or two. In ten to fifteen years there will be more Pakistanis than Danes in this country!… The Danes are five million, soon you’ll be exterminated [or extinct?]. Look at the Swedes, look at the Norwegians, look at the Finns, man! We are multiples [of] millions,...

    Professor Manuel Trajtenberg, Executive Director of Tel Aviv University's Institute for National Security Studies (INSS), expressed concern over the population density in Israel and called for a drop in the country's birthrate. In an interview with Yediot Aharonot, Trajtenberg said, "When I look ahead, I see a future that is blacker than black." He noted that according to the Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS), at the end of 2020 there were nearly 9.3 million people living in Israel, and this number grows by nearly 2% each year. "We are living in the third most densely populated country among OECD countries,...

    We are entering an unanticipated reality—an era of slow population growth and, increasingly, demographic decline that will shape our future in profound and unpredictable ways. Globally, last year’s total population growth was the smallest in a half-century, and by 2050, some 61 countries are expected to see population declines while the world’s population is due to peak sometime later this century. This kind of long-term global demographic stagnation has not been seen since the Middle Ages. World population has been growing for centuries, but the last century has dwarfed previous rises. About 75 percent of the world’s population growth has...

    By Nov. 15, the world’s population is projected to reach 8 billion, and by 2023, India is projected to surpass China as the world’s most populous country, according to a new report from the United Nations.The international agency listed these projections among several key highlights in its annual World Population Prospect report, released to mark World Population Day Monday.“This year’s World Population Day falls during a milestone year, when we anticipate the birth of the Earth’s eight billionth inhabitant,” UN Secretary-General António Guterres said, reacting to the report’s findings.“This is an occasion to celebrate our diversity, recognize our common humanity,...

    India is set to become the world's most populous country next year, overtaking China with its 1.4bn people, according to UN figures. By this November, the planet will be home to 8bn. But population growth is not as rapid as it used to be. It is now at its slowest rate since 1950 and is set to peak, says the UN, around the 2080s at about 10.4bn though some demographers believe that could happen even sooner. But the population of the world is expanding unevenly.

    ELBERTON, Ga. -- Driving north from Atlanta on I-85 toward South Carolina, you exit east at Georgia Highway 51, then exit again at Highway 17, which takes you straight to the city of Elberton. Once in Elberton, population 5,000, you take Highway 77 north for almost nine miles. Eyes scanning the horizon, you finally see it perched on a high knoll, with an easy-to-miss turnoff onto a small road that leads practically up to its foot. It stands alone in all its mighty glory, and on any given day you’ll likely be the only visitor. Four rectangular slabs of granite...

    A VISIT TO MYSTERIOUS MONUMENTS IN GEORGIA BRINGS STRANGE FEELINGS, STRANGER HISTORY We have to admit there's an unnerving sensation at those monoliths known as the "Georgia Guidestones." We visited them on Monday, and while at first they seemed innocuous (plus, at first glance, smaller perhaps than one might expect), an oppressive atmosphere soon enough envelopes one the longer one lingers surveyinging these stones that aren't so small or undaunting once one is at the base (and in the shadow) of them. Widely described as the most mysterious monuments in the United States, or as "America's Stonehenge," the guidestones were...

    Contrary to the projections of the United Nations, demographers warn that recent evidence suggests the world is headed into a population collapse, not an era of overpopulation. While the United Nations predicts that humanity will continue down a path of massive population growth until the year 2100, peaking at over 11 billion, a demographic study published in The Lancet found that the world is only a few decades away from a sharp and consequential population decline. In an October 2020 study titled “Fertility, mortality, migration, and population scenarios for 195 countries and territories from 2017 to 2100: a forecasting analysis...

    Amid the deluge of dire predictions that the human population will rise exponentially, deplete the earth’s resources, and overheat the planet, two recent demographic studies predict the opposite—that the number of people will peak within the next several decades and then begin a phase of steady, irreversible decline.In some places, including Japan, Russia, South Korea, and most countries in Europe, that population collapse has already begun. China is not far behind.The United Nations has predicted that humanity will continue its rapid expansion into the next century, growing from just under 8 billion today to more than 11 billion by 2100....

    Former White House counsel John Dean, who was imprisoned for his role in the Watergate scandal, Thursday on CNN’s “The Lead,” estimated that “about 30% to 35% ” of the U.S. population was “very hardcore” and “authoritarian.” When asked to compare Watergate to the January 6, 2021 Capitol riot, Dean said, “Particularly with the forthcoming hearings for January 6, we really need to understand what was one event, what was the other event, and how they play off of each other. A president abusing power versus a president trying to stay in power. We’re going to see Nixon, in a...

    President Joe Biden’s policies have helped drive the nation’s foreign-born population to 47 million as of April, the largest in United States history, new analysis reveals. From February 2021 to April, Biden’s policies have helped add two million foreign-born residents to the U.S. population. The data suggests that nearly 145,000 foreign-born residents are being added to the nation’s already historically-high population every month. Today, more than 331 million residents live in the U.S., the highest in U.S. history. Put another way, the nation’s foreign-born population has quintupled since 1970, tripled since 1980, doubled since 1990, and grown 50 percent since...
