I recently read that 200,000 more people are added to the earth’s population EVERY DAY! That is 200,000 more births every day than deaths!
I used to live in a city of 200,000 and the infrastructure and land and resources that were required to support that many people was immense. It’s staggering to think that a city that size is being added to the population every day.
Just the societal problems alone in that city and that was when everything was working efficiently and there was no disruption in the food supply.
One short term natural disaster that took just a week (flood) and affected one tiny part of the city wreaked havoc on the waste water treatment and the electrical distribution system. The money and time required to fix it took forever and cost a ton of money and that is in a peaceful society where most everyone is working together for the common good.
200,000 more people per day and they all want to live like the effing Kardashians.
That kind of growth cannot end well.
