Experts said: The Earth in 2050 are difficult to identify

WASHINGTON - The population that continues to grow increasingly compete scramble resources are increasingly scarce. Seeing the trend, researchers at a scientific conference in the U.S., last week, predicted in 2050 later, the world was 'beyond recognition'.

UN predicts world population already this year will reach the number 7 billion people, and towards 2050, that figure rose to 9 billion. "Almost all population growth occurs in poor countries, partly in Africa and in South Asia," said John Bongaarts, vice nonprofit Population Council.

Billions of mouths to feed it, of course, the Earth must be milked harder. "In 40 years time, we must produce the same amount of food we consume over 8000 years back," said Jason Clay of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) at the annual conference of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) that.

If the current trend continues, "By 2050 later, the rest of the planet is no more, we can recognize," said Clay.

Swelling populations cause various problems, such as resource depletion. On the other hand, revenues are expected to increase for 40 years. Globally, revenue will increase three-fold. In developing countries even quintuple.

With increasing income, people tend to rise also in the composition of the food chain. They, experts said, eating more meat than the days when they earn less. "More and more people, more money, more consumption, but still the same planet," said Jason Clay.

Clay asked the scientists and the government began to make changes in how food is produced. The experts also called on the population more funding for family planning programs, for human growth, mainly in developing countries, can be more controlled.( Yahoo News )
