Last December, a gray-haired professor was standing
by the soccer field at Cedar Falls Park, watching the
youngsters play. I said: "In 2019, the U.N. report said
that world population will rise to 11 billion & level out.
Is that the plan?" And he said: "There is no plan."

And I repeat ...
The issue that you seem unwilling to confront is fertility rates. If
the women of a country average fewer than 2.1 children apiece the
population of that country will gradually shrink to zero. Most of the
developed world, including the United States, is in that category.
Aha, but you say, the population of the United States (1.84) is
growing! Two reasons -- unchecked immigration and a previously higher
rate than 2.1 which left us with a peaking wave of women still of
child bearing age. Some countries like Italy (1.47) and Japan (1.38)
are already experiencing a severe population decline. Most of East
Asia is far below replacement rate, as is most of the developed world.
All of Africa is above replacement as well as much of the Middle East,
India, and some countries in Central and South America.

What can we do? Provide those significantly above 2.1 with birth
control and cease to welcome their excess populations at our southern
border. Japan has for years been working on robotics and automation --
something that the rest of the developed world has begun to emulate.
