Global population hits 8 billion

15 Nov 2022 02:10

Well, we did it. We've managed to cram 8 billion people onto this tiny rock.

Probably start dropping soon.

The way some seem to be happy with the way we are going I doubt it will keep growing.

Yes it's good that the population will stabilize, we need that to preserve the environment.

Here is what's going on with the drop in fertility seen around the world:

Decreasing fertility rates may be linked to pollution caused by fossil fuel burning, a review of scientific studies has found.

Over the past 50 years childbirth has steadily decreased. The study focused on Denmark, but the trend is also seen in other industrialised nations. One in 10 Danish children are born with assisted reproduction and more than 20% of men never have children, according to the researchers. This decrease seems to have started at the beginning of industrialisation. Experts have warnedthe trend could lead to an unbalanced demographic with too few younger people to support the older generations.



This is poetic justice....finally these chemicals (including fossil fuels) are doing something good.

Nature always finds a way to protect itself.

A cocktail of chemical pollutants measured in people’s bodies has been linked to falling semen quality by new research.

Chemicals such as bisphenols and dioxins are thought to interfere with hormones and damage sperm quality, and the study found combinations of these compounds are present at “astonishing” levels, up to 100 times those considered safe.

 
Bisphenol A (BPA) was responsible for the highest risks, the scientists said. The chemical is found in milk and tinned food as it leaches from the linings of the packaging. The key steps for healthy male sexual development occur during pregnancy, making the study results particularly relevant for expectant mothers, the researchers said.

Little-little rock. rock with not many resources for that 8 billions, one of the reasons to colonize other planets. Hope it will be before 10 billions because of some stars in our generation, that makes it happen
