Global Population To Hit 11 Billion In 2100

Recommended Posts

It has often been argued that housing stock expansion will not be required after 2050 based on historic studies which concluded global population growth would peak at 9 Billion.

New research from The University of Washington has now found there is a 70% chance that the global population will rise continuously until at least 2100 at which point it will reach 11 Billion.

According to Professor Adrian Raftery:

"There is now a strong argument that population should return to the top of the international agenda. Population is the driver of just about everything else and rapid population growth can exacerbate all kinds of challenges."

What affect on future UK house prices and population density? Also, what wider impact will these findings have on the global economy and resource sharing?

Of course it will partially be funded by UK (or just K as it very nearly was) taxpayers via increases in our foreign 'aid' budget to stoke these unsustainable populations to the point where they will inevitably suffer worse than if we left well enough alone.

A perpetual increasing world population is a double edged sword......as long as they don't all want to live, eat and consume growing amounts indefinitely ....if many more could consume less doing things differently, and a few more could consume more so that they may become more healthy and well so bringing out their greatest potential, at the same time thinking of the planet, the future and how to make best use of the finite resources it holds there shouldn't be a problem....healthy balances prevail or else we all fail. ;)
