Study: Collapsing Birth Rates & Population to Have 'Jaw-Dropping' Impact

Sign up right here. (TMU) – Researchers are decrying collapsing birth rates around the world, which they warn will result in profound social change if governments don’t roll out new reproductive health policies. Spain, Japan, Portugal and Thailand are among the 23 countries that could see their populations more than half in a “jaw-dropping” trend. While the global population is expected to peak at about 9.7 billion around 2064, the population will fall to 8.8 by the end of the 21st century. “That’s a pretty big thing; most of the world is transitioning into natural population decline,” Professor Christopher Murray told BBC News.

The Top 10 Happiest Countries and What Makes Them Happy

Everyone wants to be happy, and increasingly, countries around the world are looking at happiness as an indicator of national well-being and considering happiness in policy making. As this year’s World Happiness Report states, “Happiness is increasingly considered a proper measure of social progress and a goal of public policy.”

But what makes people happy, and which countries have the highest levels of happiness? For the World Happiness Report, researchers ranked countries based on factors including healthy life expectancy, social support, GDP per capita, the happiness of a country’s children, social capital, the civil economy, the absence of corruption, and subjective well-being. 1. The World’s Most Spoken Languages In One Fascinating Infographic. Whenever I meet someone of a different ethnicity, out of sheer curiosity, I always ask if they speak the language of their heritage. I was born in Canada, but grew up with Punjabi speaking parents.

I also studied French, Japanese, and Korean, and like to see language as almost a binding agent that helps smooth over communication. Business deals can go in a completely different direction if someone knows even a few words of another language, and, let’s be honest, traveling around the world and practicing different words you’ve picked up is fun. Having even a rudimentary understanding of another language also allows you to connect with someone of a different culture much more quickly, and people generally appreciate any efforts of communication in their own tongue. Science has also shed light on how learning more languages can improve your intelligence. Flash Earth - Zoom into satellite and aerial imagery.

Immigration – I know this sounds unlikely, but bear with us a moment here – is in the news rather a lot at the moment. For one thing, there's the Mediterranean migrant crisis, which EU leaders are meeting to discuss this week. Then there's the non-stop thrill ride of Britain's debate over whether or not it's a good idea to alienate the entirety of the continent just across the English Channel; one of the main arguments put forward by the Eurosceptic and definitely not racist right-wing party UKIP is that pulling out of Europe would give us back control of our borders.

This, though, isn't the only demographic story playing out in Europe at the moment. While Britain debates how to handle population growth, other countries are facing a crisis brought on by emigration and falling birth rates – a gradual depopulation of the sort that could utterly wreck welfare systems.

Human Population Predicted To Reach 12 Billion By 2100. At 7.2 billion, the human population is already a serious burden on resources and a threat to the environment and species.

Imagine, then, how dire the global situation would be if we were to reach 12 billion, because if the current rate continues, that is what our planet may be facing at the turn of the next century. According to a new study by the United Nations (UN) and the University of Washington, there is an 80% probability that the world population will reach between 9.6 and 12.3 billion in 2100.

That’s around 2 billion higher than previous estimates. “The consensus over the past 20 years or so was that world population, which is currently around 7 billion, would go up to 9 billion and level off or probably decline,” study author and statistician Adrian Raftery said in a news release.
