Welcome to The Futurist Daily News.
In November 2001, the United Nations Population Fund reported that the world population is projected to be 9.3 billion in 2050 with most of the increase in developing countries. This figure was revised to 9.1 billion in 2005 and 9.2 billion in 2007. In 2008, the United States Census Bureau projected a world population of 9.5 billion. According to a 2002 study by World Wildlife Fund, by the year 2050, planet Earth, will not have sufficient resources to sustain human life.
Another study done by the European Commission Community Research said that after 2030, the world population is expected to grow at a decreasing rate to 8.9 billions in 2050 and, that stabilization in the population will happen in the second half of the century. In the rich industrialized countries, with the exception of North America, where immigrants will still enjoy a rise in population, generation replacement will no longer be assured: two out of every nine people in the world will be 60 years or older and world life expectancy will be expected to exceed 76 years.
By then, the five largest economies in the world will be China, the United States, India, Brazil, and Mexico, in that order.
It is now, time to act!
