    I know the population is growing we were at 8 billion, but it won't lead to extinction, so I guess the population will calm down.

    That seems a very dramatic conclusion. Of course, if something is causing that large a change in an aspect of our biology then it should be investigated, but unless sperm counts are going to continue to halve rather than just stay stay at half the record high (and they seem unclear on what that should be), I don't see how that threatens humanity, even without IVF or AI.

    1) Heavily over exaggerated conclusion, it will take a lot more than that to wipe off an entire race consisting of over 7++ Billion individuals.

    2) Even if it was going to lead to a slow in population growth, frankly, I welcome this, as it delays the problem of overpopulation, which is much more likely to cause illness, famine, and squandering for resources, THAT is closer to 'human extinction', than this issue.

    3) Let's face it, people are always going to reproduce, someone, somewhere, I wouldn't sweat it.

    The rate of growth may slow down, however, we won't be going extinct. At least not just yet.

    This effect is in Europeans, Americans, and Australians (and probably Japanese, Koreans, etc.) - places where the number of births is already below replacement rate. This would barely affect human population growth, since it would only result in a few thousand fewer Westerners annually, since there are already so few Westerners pumped out annually.

    The vast majority of population growth (around 3 billion of it) will come from Africa, which is not affected by this so much yet (happily pumping out 6-7 children per woman).
