We’re a fairly adaptable species, so I think you can relax.

Plus we have stopped using plastic straws so we’ve at least pushed back doomsday.

I haven’t. Blame the rising tides and warm breezes on me I guess.

. . . as I thought, yes it does seem we are not reading the same materials on this topic.

I started the thread. I try to keep up. Are you confusing this thread with the we gonna getcha Great Reset thread?

I guess my tangent is loosely related to “population decline” if not only focused on our giant continent sized neighbour across the strait.

I suppose my tangent does raise the question of how planetary warming and its impact will affect population growth in China as it too contends with food security and water management issues.

There, I think I brought it back on topic! :slightly_smiling_face:

Pre-Covid my clients in the plastics industry were hurting, driving BMW’s or older Mercedes. It was difficult doing new business.

Since Covid, the parking lots are full of exotic cars and they are spending like kings. The waste produced these past few years is quite remarkable. Five weeks ago myself and three other divers picked up 22 masks littering the reefs of kenting, it was just a 50 minute dive covering maybe 50 m2.

China’s problems are demographic, not so much climate related. Even if they lose half their population in the next 50 years or so, it will mostly be due to lack of babies and the death of really old people. Not war which would be horrendous if that many civilians were killed, or famine or rising sea levels.

That said, ONLY 500,000,000 Chinese is still enough to keep on keeping on for an economy transitioning to fully post industrial. They ain’t there yet.

I’m not following you. Should population growth in China be encouraged? Or is planetary warming a benefit as it will reduce population growth?

That won’t solve anyone’s demographic issues unless kids are put to work.

Schools are a waste of their time they say. Ok, but they won’t like the alternative.
