OMG.  I spent a few weeks in Karachi in 1993 when the population was "only" 10 mil.   They were stacked like cord wood with no elbow room to be found.  If these new population numbers are correct, I can't imagine where the growth occured......in the burbs?  Those poor people are living short lives, for sure.  One word.....CONDOM

Nature will balance itself out one way or another, in time.  We are going to see mass famine, drought, plague or war.  This is not a list I would want to be on.  The only way the human race will survive is when we realize self preservation.

Our Western civilisation and way of life is being conquered through demographics - no weapons needed. These countries DO NOT CARE that their populations are growing past their ability to sustain them.  That is simply part of the plan to conquer western civilisation and take everything they want through population dispersion.
