Where was the actual information coming from about the population growth?...

because if you pay attention to the facts about the ever decreasing populations in various countries...then you need to question the *reported population explosion. When most of Main Stream Media (MSM) which is owned by 6 to 13 companies claim an increase then we need to question WHY . http://mikephilbin.blogspot.ca/2009/07/six-major-corporationsown-mainstream.html So then where does population growth come into the picture? Overpopulation is a Myth http://www.youtube.com/watch? v=HsAracLBCxI&feature=youtu.be

~This report from 2004 International Monetary fund (IMF) show the steady decline of births in Asia & Africa as well as other countries. Yet more recently published reports they create use the scare tactics of an increase. www.imf.org/external/pubs/ft/weo/2004/02/pdf/chapter3.pdf ~In 2006, Japan reached a demographic and social turning point. According to Tokyo’s official statistics, deaths that year very slightly outnumbered births. Japan is now a “net mortality society.” Death rates today are routinely higher than birthrates, and the imbalance is growing. The nation is set to commence a prolonged period of depopulation. Within just a few decades, the number of people living in Japan will likely decline 20 percent. The Germans, who saw their numbers drop by an estimated 700,000 in just the years from 2002 to 2009, have a term for this new phenomenon: schrumpfende Gesellschaft, or “shrinking society.” http://www.wilsonquarterly.com/article.cfm?aid=2143 ~October 07, 2007 20 EU Countries Have Negative or Zero Natural Increase This negative or zero natural population growth means that these countries have more deaths than births or an even number of deaths and births; this figure does not include the impacts of immigration or emigration.

The country with the highest decrease in the natural birth rate is Ukraine, with a natural decrease of 0.8% each year. Ukraine is expected to lose 28% of their population between now and 2050 (from 46.8 million now to 33.4 million in 2050). Russia and Belarus follow close behind at a 0.6% natural decrease and Russia will lose 22% of their population by 2050 – that is a loss of more than 30 million people (from 142.3 million today to 110.3 million in 2050). Japan is the only non-European country in the list and it has a 0% natural birth increase and is expected to lose 21% of its population by 2050 (shrinking from 127.8 million to a mere 100.6 million in 2050). The streets of Tokyo won’t be as crowded in a few decades as they are today! http://geography.about.com/od/populationgeography/a/zero.ht m ~Oct 29th 2009...SOMETIME in the next few years (if it hasn't happened already) the world will reach a milestone: half of humanity will be having only enough children to replace itself. That is, the fertility rate of half the world will be 2.1 or below. This is the “replacement level of fertility”, the magic number that causes a country's population to slow down and eventually to stabilise. The countries include not only Russia and Japan but Brazil, Indonesia, China and even south India. Demographic denialists are ignoring the perils of an ageing population. http://www.ruthblog.org/tag/under-population/ ~Jul 14th 2012 So a summit on family planning, held in London on July 11th, represents a big change. The meeting, called by the British government and the Gates Foundation, a charity, won promises of $4.6 billion from donors and developing countries, to provide modern contraception (coils, pills, injectables, implants and condoms) to an extra 120m women by 2020. This would be a hefty increase on the $4 billion spent each year on family planning in those countries. http://www.economist.com/node/21558564

~(Updated) The national birth rate dropped for the third straight year, down another 3% in 2012. ..and experts say it's because women fear they cannot afford the cost of kids. According to a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report released Thursday, birth rates dropped in all racial and ethnic groups and in most age groups from 2009 to 2010. U.S. births hit a record-high 4.3 million in 2007. After the official start of the recession in December 2007, births started dipping, and declined steadily in 2008 and 2009. By 2010, U.S. births were down to about 4 million. http://healthland.time.com/2011/11/18/u-s-birth-rates-hitrecord-lows-is-it-the-economy/ ~The birth rate fell to 13.9 per 1,000 persons in 2002 http://usgovinfo.about.com/cs/censusstatistic/a/aabirthrate.ht m ~Aug 2nd 2012 According to the Harvard study the richest households are seeing their child-dependency ratios fall by more than the poorest ones. The difference may not sound like much. The fall in the ratio is 0.1 more among the richest group than among the poorest. But in practice that is a lot; it means the average number of children fell by about 50% more in the richest households than it did in the poorest. In Cote d’Ivoire, the child-dependency ratio in the poorest group fell 13% between 1994 and 2005. Among the richest group, it fell 32%, more than twice as much. http://www.economist.com/blogs/feastandfamine/2012/08/ferti lity-decline-demographic-dividend-poverty-and-inequality ~March 4, 2012 Fertility rate drop disturbing “But could it be that some deeper truths are buried in these numbers? We have gone to great lengths in recent decades to build a culture of caution and harm-avoidance. The modern school curriculum preaches healthy living, zero tolerance of anti-social behaviour and, above all, the importance of not getting pregnant. All worthy values.

Public health officials bombard us with every conceivable risk to our well-being. And government departments cotton-wool us with endless regulations intended to stave off real or imaginary threats. Is it possible that we've over-achieved? Might it be that facing the real world has become too much of a challenge for young people? Too worrying or stressful or just plain unwanted?” By Times Colonist (Victoria) ~The pdf below published in 2002 speaks of demographic surprises over the past 30 years. Fertility levels have dropped dramatically in some parts of the EU. As a result of basic demographic changes population growth has rapidly become negative in parts of Europe, Germany, Greece, Italy & Sweden have already registered a natural population decline. Eight out of 12 countries reported population decreases. Death outnumbered births in 6 out of 12 countries. UN's latest forecast that the recently observed negative population growth will remain for at least another 10 years. ec.europa.eu/regional_policy/sources/docgener/studies/pdf/de mographic_study_2cr.pdf ~May 07, 2012 ..THERE WILL BE A SHIFT IN POWER UNLESS THE BIRTHRATES INCREASE IN the DEVELOPED WORLD. (~There is in fact a decline in many countries.~) The replacement rate--the reproduction rate that keeps a population stable--for developed countries is 2.1, yet nearly half the world’s population has birth rates lower than that. Western European countries have low fertility rates, below the replacement rate of 2.1. Singapore’s experience is no different from that of these countries. Our birth rates have been steadily declining. Low fertility and an aging population are two of our greatest concerns. In the future we will have to depend on immigrants to make up our numbers,

Like the World Bank who pushes governments to enforce family planing & to empower women. Which in all industrialized worlds is used as a method of birth control. Empower women, get them working & they have less children or often wait until older before having children if at all. (most of whom will work for minimum wage) As a result of having more people (women) working at low paying jobs it forces the cost of labour down. Allowing for larger profits for Conglomerates but also reduces the quality of life for more & more people. Add in the billions made by drug companies & you see why the claim of population growth is enforced by the very groups who will profit the most. ~We also learn of the UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund whose members are experienced. But included in their resumes are Economic & Financial market forecasting, a corespondent for the New York Times & 2 who worked for the World Bank. And of course we can't forget the Rockefellers who fund the Population Council (Some contraceptives available in some countries today were developed by the Population Council) & connections to the Ford foundation. There is even a CEO of a Stamped Metal company, whose experience is with Fortune 400 companies. Their mandate includes Family Planning...hmm. This group works with the UN, the WHO, Government agencies & the World Bank to forecast population growth. ~The family planning is mainly focused on Asia and Africa. Yet the Declining Birth Rates are Raising Concerns in Asia http://www.eastwestcenter.org/news-center/east-westwire/declining-birth-rates-raising-concerns-in-asia/ ~And this report SA’s declining fertility rate could threaten the country’s labour supply, the South African Institute for Race Relations warns. http://www.businessday.co.za/articles/Content.aspx? id=162660 ~2012 Using data and graphics to explain the symbiotic roles of family planning and gender equality in achieving development goals,

the objective of this presentation is to reposition family planning as a priority on policy agendas in sub-Saharan Africa. Here we see that above the facts are that there is a decline & yet there is an agenda to enforce Family Planning to reduce the population. http://www.prb.org/ ~In recent decades, the Muslim world has experienced a demographic transition that was as acute as it was late: in 30 years, the number of children per woman has dropped by more than 50%. In Iran, the drop represents 75%; in North Africa it is 70%. Once you realize that it took Europe two centuries to go from 5 to 2 children per woman, you can appreciate the severity of this collapse in birth rates. ~In late 2011, the American Enterprise Institute, a think tank close the Republican party, published a study on the declining fertility rates in the Muslim world, describing the phenomena as “strangely unnoticed.” http://worldcrunch.com/myth-soaring-muslim-fertilityrates/4990 ~A growing number of women in the Arab region are using contraception, as family planning services have expanded. Still, not all of the need has been satisfied. http://www.prb.org/ ~According to the CIA World Factbook, 2010, the fertility rate of the United States has nearly halved in the last 50 years. http://www.nuclearreader.info/chapter1.html

~If it is believed that Africa's & Asia' s birthrates are rising too fast, then No one stops the *Family planning & other measures to reduce their populations. But knowing that in fact many countries suffer the same decline then ...That is without doubt...Population CONTROL..by other countries with the intent to benefit from it.~ ~By pushing the claim of a population explosion we also hear that prices Must increase because of a supposed shortage of natural

resources. And All of it is a SCAM..the explosion will be in price increases in what Conglomerates charge us for goods & services that should Not be going up in price at all. They are simply preparing for lower populations & intend to make the same profits with fewer citizens to get it from.~ ~I intentionally did not include the effects from Fukushima which will lower populations further, because the forecasts that I included occurred before that.~
