Based on nothing but speculation, I expect population to peak in 40 years.
Population is not an issue IF we live WITHOUT waste. All these things are driven by the WAY WE THINK about how we live - if we straighten that out, it doesn't matter how many people there are.

The combination and overlap and amplification of all these factors - will kill a lot of people.

Our climate crisis is piled on top of all the other issues. And all the problems are caused by our ignoring the facts.
