Every minute, 150 babies are born into the world. That means about 220,000 new human beings a day--80 million a year who need to be fed, clothed, sheltered, educated and employed. 9 out of 10 are born in the third world. The astonishing Figures come from the 1987 report of the United Nations Fund for Population Activities --State of World Population. There is no trace of population pressure producing dynamic agricultural innovations in the rice paddies of the Ganges basin, the grain fields of the Nile delta or in the inter-Andean valleys of South America, it says. No evidence, either, in the well-documented history of the populations of England and France. And the Mayan civilization, it is recalled, "fell victim to population pressure' and was extinguished. Population growth also threatens plants, animals and forests. 10 people billion by the year 2087 This could well do us in. When we eat all the food and take up all the land, what's left but war? We have no plan in place for this, and unless each one of us earns enough to feed nine others in the third world, most are going to be starving. How do we stop growing? Humanity needs to diet!
