But it is surprising that Asia and Latin America are about to take a back seat — The real population driver of the 21st Century will be Africa, Govender says:
The ‘migrant crisis’ will become an endless flow.
That’s why IS is expanding there first. They can read a bloody chart.
This new population will be heavily skewed by growth in the Middle East and Africa, where the UN Population Division expects populations to grow by 72% and 305%, respectively, from now until 2100.
Asia and Latin America, once considered the future drivers of population growth, will take a back seat–Central and South America are projected to see a modest 14% growth while East Asia is due to see a 27% contraction. The developed world, meanwhile, will not be able to keep pace.
The Western economy is doomed.
Western Europe should see little change at all while North America, the fastest grower among developed regions, grows its population by 40%.
Hey, you wanted to get into debt saving African children, did you think they’d stay small and sterile forever?
Here’s the kicker.
42% — or 4.2 billion people — of the Earth’s 10 billion inhabitants will be Sub-Saharan African, Middle Eastern, or North African in 2100. No other ethnicity will have more than a 20% share of the whole.
Where will they want to go?
I’m sure we’ll think of something.
But remember kids, race isn’t real…. but anyone who argues otherwise is racist somehow… but it isn’t real….
UPDATE: Sent in;
“Today, Africa’s population is one-quarter the size of Asia’s. By 2100, it will be just 10% smaller. Africa’s population as a whole is projected to grow very rapidly in the coming 85 years, from 1.2 billion today to 4.4 billion people in 2100 — an increase of 266%. At the end of the current century, Africa’s population will be equal to the total world population back in 1980. Nigeria will move from being the world’s seventh most-populous country today to its third most-populous country in 2100 (behind only India and China).”
But sure, the West has the problem…
