Am I the only one incredibly scared at how fast this population calculator moves?

If it is any consolation, the "population growth" is actually due to declining death rates and longer lifespans, rather than more births.
In fact, North America, Europe, most of East Asia and even some of Latin America now has "Below Replacement Level" birthrates of 2.1 per female, assuming 50/50 sex ratios at birth. And with nations like Red China formerly restricting births and thus aborting girl babies, the sex ratios there are even more skewed. So that world population is *graying* more than it is growing.2
Nah not really. Compared to that in some decades ago, we're growing slower. You know the average kids in india today? It's 2... Not just India that's 2. Many developing countries have decreased average kids.1
I'm sure you're not the only one who's worried about it but I think it's stupid to worry about things that are out of your control. I learned a long time ago that worrying about something you have no control over does nothing so you should just hope for the best and carry on with your life0
i honestly think if you consider that it´s supposed to show birth and deaths on "the whole freaking world" this moves actually pretty slow.1
It's freakish, indeed. Mainly when thinking that 90+ % of these newborn face a life of hardship.0
I guess, but I'm doing my part. No children here. Let the idiocracy reign supreme. At any rate, don't worry. Global warming will regulate this, and you might think it goes too much in the other direction.0
you can't be this stupid :/0
I used to obsess over it like 5 years ago so I understand but I don't care as much anymore. There's nothing you can do about it personally so why worry.0
Overpopulation is becoming a thing.
But what about the real world not the one that's from0
Yeah, because that's updated live.0
Like rabbits : DD0
People will start starving soon enough. Give it a few years.0
Do you belive in this app lol.0
