Seattle, Washington – As it currently stands, the global population of 7.3 billion will increase to over 11 billion by the year 2100 according to the statisticians at the United Nations Population Division. Their predications, which they freely admit are not guaranteed, estimate that the bulk of the world’s population increases will not be led by China, much less Asia.
In fact, it will be in Africa that the population will soar from the current count of 1.2 billion to 5.6 billion people. Most of the population growth will occur in the sub-Saharan part of the continent making Black people the majority demographic in the world. In fact, the statisticians predict that Nigeria will experience a population boom that will increase its population from 181 million to 782 million. By contrast, the United States is expected to see its population increase from 322 million to 450 million over that same time frame.
United Nations officials believe the increase in population is actually a bad thing. They claim the larger populations will further exhaust the plant’s resources. This will lead in increases in unemployment and by extension crime, along with political unrest. Asia’s population will top five billion by the year 2050, but will decline to just under that mark by the end of the century.
