The post WW2 “baby boom” was a significant and self-correcting anomaly.
For 60 years, we’ve been led to believe population will spiral out of control forever. The 1970’s movie Soylent Green predicted 80 billion people by 2022! Paul Ehrlich’s famous Population Bomb book was wrong the day he published it. The 1970s era Limits to Growth by The Club of Rome, and other books, “experts”, movies and propaganda were wrong.
The outfall of this error is massive – and one of the most significant issues facing us today, yet it receives almost no attention from anyone.
