Major ‘Population Correction’ Coming For Humanity, Scientist Predicts​

A little over two centuries ago, in the year 1800, roughly a billion people called Earth home.

Just a century later, it had grown by another 600 million.

Today, there are around 8 billion people on the planet.

That sort of growth is unsustainable for our ecosphere, risking a ‘population correction’ that according to a new study could occur before the century is out.

The prediction is the work of population ecologist William Rees from the University of British Columbia in Canada. He argues that we’re using up Earth’s resources at an unsustainable rate, and that our natural tendencies as humans make it difficult for us to correct this “advanced ecological overshoot“.

We've got a population correction coming, yes.

Not from "Climate" or whatever they're calling it, today.

Not even from the Jab - although that's going to speed things along.

Read up on "Behavioral Sink" and researcher John Calhoun's Mouse Universe.

Cliff's Notes version: Calhoun, in a large warehouse, set up a Mouse Nirvana. Huge amounts of compartments and nesting areas, and unlimited food and water. Into it went eight laboratory white mice. And they waited.

The mice paired off and reproduced, and the colony grew. Various nesting places were filled. Old mice died. The numbers grew...and grew...and grew.

Until. At a point, they reached a plateau. It was NOT technical overcrowding; there were still unoccupied nesting areas. But the mice were on top of one another every common area.

Behavior changed, to dysfunctional traits. Male mice ceased mating. Also they ceased fighting, which is normal mouse behavior. Researchers called that generation "the beautiful ones" because they lacked all the scarring that healthy male mice show - in colonies or in the wild.

Female mice would miscarry. If a female carried a litter to term, she often ate the infants. Few were born of this generation that survived.

And the colony population started dropping off...slowly, then suddenly.

And behavior didn't reverse as the numbers went down. Apparently there is a generational-teaching element in mouse social behavior.

Calhoun ended his experiment when the population had fallen to a tenth of its peak population.

THAT is where we're at. Dysfunctional behavior. Mating patterns erased. Abortion preferential to childbirth.

Planned Infanticide CONSUMING fetuses, for tissue, and probably adreneochrome.

Our own government scheming to kill us, slowly, or quickly in radiation bursts, or in nuclear SAVE! THE! PLANET!!!

And our wealthiest citizens, having gotten wealthy from money-changing or seigniorage, are USING this supply of unearned money to wreak havoc and punish their lessers.

Yes, global population is going to fall, and rapidly.
IIRC, its only African countries that are currently increasing population numbers.
Most western countries have been below replacement levels for a few years.

Curious how on the one hand they need the numbers to maintain the ponzi scheme but on the other are keen to kill us off with toxic inputs at every level .........
In the year 2023, the world experienced a population growth rate of 0.914% and global population grew with total of 73,518,905 people.
The geographic region with the highest population growth rate was Africa with a rate of 2.339%. Closely followed by Oceania with a population growth rate of 1.174%, and Latin America and the Caribbean with a 0.754% population growth.


I have no idea where they get their numbers from or how accurate they are, but it tracks with things I've read over the years. The highest population growth occurs in the poorest countries.

From 2021:
The world’s population continues to grow, reaching 7.8 billion by mid-2020, rising from 7 billion in 2010, 6 billion in 1998, and 5 billion in 1986. The average annual growth rate was around 1.1% in 2015–2020, which steadily decreased after it peaked at 2.3% in the late 1960s. Among 201 countries and areas, 73 countries had a smaller growth rate in 2010–2020 compared with the previous decade; and out of these 73 countries, more than 60 are developing countries. The slowing pace of the population growth is closely related to declines in fertility. Globally, the total fertility rate was 2.4 births per woman of reproductive age in 2020, decreasing from 2.7 in 2000, 3.7 in 1980, and 5.0 in 1950. In high-income and upper-middle-income countries, the total fertility rate has been below replacement level (2.1 births per woman) for a few decades, which is the level required to ensure the replacement of generations in low-mortality countries. In a few of these countries, total fertility rates have even fallen to extremely low levels, 1.5 births per woman, and even below 1.5 in some countries, for the past several decades.

There is a myriad of reasons for the slowing pace of population growth that can be attributed to declining fertility in the context of a demographic transition mainly caused by modernization. In the process of modernization, improved food security, nutrition, and public health, advances in medical technology and socioeconomic development, coupled with improved safe and effective family planning methods and services have largely improved child survival, which has enabled couples to have a desired number of children without having too many births. Improved education, enhanced women’s empowerment, increased financial security in old age, and personal aspirations for more opportunities regarding self-career development and a better life have all reshaped young couples’ views and behaviors about postponements of marriage and childbearing, and the numbers and timing of childbirths (2-3). All of these forces have led to reductions in fertility, and eventually triggered a demographic transition. By 2020, all countries and areas either have completed their demographic transition or are in the middle of the transition.
