Hi, I've recently started the 'Discussion' section of my Extended Project.
I'm arguing the fact that Human population growth isn't exponential, and could even begin to decrease soon.
The issue is that the evidence I have found along with my own opinion is making it really hard for me to write a balanced argument on the topic, as I really do not think it could ever be exponential.
If anyone has any good arguments for why population growth will not cease to grow, or even any counters to declining fertility rates, aging populations or 'One Child Policies' that'd be greatly appreciated.
The population will never cease to grow as that introduces the very current issue of an ageing population, forcing a lot of pressure on the working class. As a result, some countries have even adopted pro-natalist policies like France and Sweden to encourage couples to have children. Have you talked about factors that could affect the population in its entirety? For instance, climate change is slowly beginning to be an existential crisis so soon we might not even have a population at all. Hope I helped!
