    They won't, The population will continue increasing. The more people there are, the more that are reproduced. The only way to manually decrease the worlds population is by killing off millions of people in 3rd world countries that are of no use but we know that won't happen.

    The world doesn't have that much capacity to hold future generations. We will be scarce for resources in the future.

    Exactly, which is why we are going have to find alternative ways to provide power, gas, electricity, healthcare etc. The reproduction rate will only continue to increase, nothing can stop it.

    If a countries fertility rate is >2, then the population within that country is increasing, as the data shows nearly all 1st/2nd world countries are actually 'dying out'. The only countries with increasing populations are (essentially/nearly all) 3rd world countries. When those countries improve their economy, and gain access to more modern amenities/technology, I would expect their populations will begin to shrink too. I really don't think overpopulation is ever going to be an issue...

    Trouble is that in a lot of these 3rd world countries, there is little education or access to contraception. Something really needs to be done, but unfortunately, governments aren't usually that interested in doing things that will benefit the country in 50 years time.

    The population in most wealthy countries (such as those in Western Europe) is either stable or slowly decreasing. Trouble is that if you have too much of a decrease, you end up with lots of elderly people and not enough younger people working to support them.
