Nigeria is set to become the worlds third most populous country by 2050.

Furthermore, the population of Africa is set to double from 1.1 Billion to 2.4 Billion from now until 2050 with countries such as Mali, Somali and Tanzania expected to increase at least fivefold from now until 2050.

Even more worrying is the fact the worlds population is expected to reach 11 billion by 2100.

What are your thoughts?
Is this sustainable?
Will this lead to an outbreak of a mass plague or disease, due to overcrowding and inadeqate facilities for population size?

I agree, a global population growth of almost 4 billion in less than 100 years is a recipe for disaster.

It will make sweet **** all difference in the grand scheme of things, when some African or Indian will just have 10 kids for every 1 or 2 kids you don't have. Europeans are not the ones who need to moderate their procreation rates.

Because it's Africa. Half the continent is more or less in a perpetual state of borderline anarchy and that which does have some semblence of governance tends to be hopelessly inept, inefficient and corrupt.

Ultimately, it will be Mother nature who will deal with overpopulation.

Oh well, it'll just mean their governments become more and more stretched and we see them die off anyway. I expect the mass starvation, lack of government power and disease will reduce their population to smaller than it is currently after they've grown to this number.

Great, we will be forced into sending more aid to countries that are poorly governed and do nothing to help themselves

It's like a race of what will kill people first, nuclear war or overpopulation.

Population in 1800 was a billion
2 billion a century later
5 billion in the early 80's
Just over 7 billion today
Predicted to be 11 billion in 2050

The sooner the public realises population controls are needed outside Europe the better!
Europe is the only continent with a declining population without migration

That's one way to hedge your bets. We are all going to be dead anyway so let's not try to fix it. If in the unlikely event we are still around then, the population crisis is going to be ****ing us up the arse without lube. Malthus was right.

The world as a whole is not overpopulated. Global fertility growth is exceeded by growth in food, water and energy production.

The problem is almost exclusively in Africa where without a war, there will be big problems.

China, Russia and Europe will actually shed the better part of half a billion people by 2100 and the Americas have a nice sustainable positive growth rate.
