Unlucky Number 7 in 2011 (world Population)


If you are a believer that 7 is a lucky number than I have some bad news for you.

7 is an extremely unlucky number in 2011.

In 2011, the world will reach a population level of 7 billion people. This was reported in the International Business Times

Even with all the variables to consider, a good number to use in the estimate of how many humans can be supported on this planet is the number 10 billion. That estimate is based on all of us surviving on cereals. Don’t even think for a moment that 10 billion of us can live with meat in our diets.

This year we reach the unlucky number of 7 billion people. Why is this unlucky. There are many things that will likely happen within 50 years of reaching a population of 7 billion people. The worst of these is probably the end of the abundance of the oceans. At 7 billion people you can start to count the days before our seas empty. Probably within the next 30 to 50 years. Within our lifetimes we will see the end of the sushi idustry, and the end of wild fish as we know it. There will be fish farms around the world that grow fish to eat, but they will be extremely expensive and out of reach for 90% of the population. That is one of the reasons why all the estimates for how many people the earth can sustain are based on cereal consumption because rice and grains are about all that we can produce thin that great of abundance.

Americans are blind to the future of the planet, but they are not exempt from what is going to happen. Even the population growth rate in the U.S. (Without any immigration) is too much for our country to handle. Check out the old 1994 information and see how far we have come towards our own overpopulation.

If you are in Africa, forget about it. You are doomed. In Africa alone, the population is expected to grow 1.1 billion, or 49 percent of the global projected growth, by 2050. With a growth rate of 49%, exactly why are we sending food there? It is like spitting into the wind.

For the rest of the world, by 2050, it’s expected to exceed nine billion. By 2100, it’s expected to rise to 10 billion.

So after a long run as “Mr Lucky Number Seven”, it is time to put that myth to rest. Seven is my least favorite number is 2011.
