What Changed Global Overpopulation to Underpopulation?

Perhaps you have suspected that the specter of world overpopulation has been exaggerated a bit but still accept the inevitability that, sooner or later, the human population will exhaust the earth’s limited resources. You will be amazed to learn that this fear is completely unfounded because population statistics now show that, as societies become more advanced and have access to more technology, their birth rates begin to decline naturally. In fact this phenomenon already threatens the most technologically advanced countries, like the US and China, with a decline in population to the point where there is concern over their ability to sustain themselves into the future.

    I forgot to add that the modernization-means-lower-birthrates panacea isn’t happening fast enough, and said modernization is based on finite fossil fuels, even though “renewable” hype claims it doesn’t have to be. The scale is just too big, and oil keeps modern agriculture alive.

    Many nations simply don’t have the intrinsic ability to become or stay modernized, since they’ve had plenty of time to do it already. The idea that it’s inevitable is wishful thinking, circulating for decades. Vast parts of India, Africa, South America and China are still slums, masked by higher living standards in some cities. The reason China started raising exotic wildlife as food is directly tied to a 1978 decision to curb hunger among 950 million people, now up to 1.4 billion. A student of mathematics should see why this is unsustainable (and cruel to other species). Chopping down forests for fuel and housing is also relentless.

    Also, the total number of people has been too large for many decades (made possible by oil, gas and coal, not so-called renewables). The damage already done to nature can’t be glibly ignored. Turn off your anthropocentric blinders and study total human impact, even as of 50 years ago. Chronic destruction of nature has been normalized but it was never true progress.

  2. You must know about the overpopulated-humans-as-virus scene from “The Matrix.” That was the real Red Pill, quickly lost in a far-fetched virtual reality plot.

    Those who dismiss overpopulation as a problem invariably don’t care about its growing impacts on other species, forests, air & water pollution, etc. They ignore maps of total land use and draining aquifers, preferring to frame it all as the ability to feed and house PEOPLE.

    They critically ignore that finite fossil fuels have propped up the whole growthist illusion of endless bounty. This includes the agricultural “green revolution” that only works because oil hasn’t fully peaked. When shale fracking peaks you’ll see how precarious food distribution is. Locals who exceed their carrying-capacity will run out of affordable backups. The 2008 recession was largely triggered by a flattening of global crude oil output that started in 2006. Shale (desperation oil) came to the rescue but could peak in the early 2020s. Places like the Permian in Texas are already running to stand still. There’s scant popular reporting on the shale bubble, just as the original 1970 U.S. crude oil peak was masked by moving to OPEC sources.

    Another delusion is the belief that covering the planet with the tallest freestanding machines ever built (industrial wind turbines) is somehow good for said planet, and that building those machines with fossil fuels still qualifies them as “renewable” energy. Their scale can’t match what fossil fuels have built. Nuclear could help for awhile, but society will eventually have to shrink or face chronic resource and energy deficits.

    Your mind won’t care about this until it actually hits, then you’ll try to find someone else to blame, like the government. Check back on this comment in 5+ years.
