The World’s Craziest Population Pyramids

The Geography Bible – Aug 20, 2022

#Geography #population A population pyramid is a way to visualize two variables: age and gender. They are used by demographers, who study populations. A population pyramid is a graph that shows the distribution of ages across a population divided down the center between male and female members of the population. It is such a simple concept yet it just so interesting, the pyramid shape for your country is often determined by the region of the world you live in as well as if any external factors have influenced actions within your country.

#Geography #population #populationcollapse Is the Earth over or under populated? For many decades the Earth’s population has grown astronomically but as the growth rate slows and eventually started to decline, could it be that our planet is underpopulated?

The De-Population Bomb

Hoover Institution – Sep 14, 2022

Recorded on June 14 at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington, DC. In 1970, Stanford professor Paul Ehrlich published a famous book, The Population Bomb, in which he described a disasterous future for humanity: “The battle to feed all of humanity is over. In the 1970s and 1980s hundreds of millions of people will starve to death in spite of any crash programs embarked upon now.” That prediction turned out to be very wrong, and in this interview American Enterprise Institute scholar Nicholas Eberstadt tells how we are in fact heading toward the opposite problem: not enough people. For decades now, many countries have been unable to sustain a #population replacement birth rate, including in Western Europe, South Korea, Japan, and, most ominously, China. The societal and social impacts of this phenomenon are vast. We discuss those with Eberstadt as well as some strategies to avoid them.

The world’s population has hit eight billion, just 11 years after passing the seven-billion milestone, the United Nations has said.
