Just like I have been saying:

Quote:China has decided to end its decades-long one-child policy, Xinhua news agency reports.
All couples will now be allowed to have two children, the state-run news agency said, citing a statement from the Communist Party.
The controversial policy was introduced nationally in 1979, to reduce the country's birth rate and slow the population growth rate.
However, concerns at China's ageing population led to pressure for change.

China is heading towards a demographic catastrophe if young people don't make more babies.

Even with these relaxed rules, the people might not make a 2nd baby.
How is it a catastrophe to lower a population of 1.3 billion?
there will be too many old people and not enough young people to support the pension systems.

I actually agreed with the one child policy because if they didn't control it in the 80's China's population would likely be close to 2 billion now with only a 25% arable landmass.
That's what old people do, they die.




All part of the 13th 5 year plan.

You can't just have a lot of old people with no young people.

Someone has to carry the load when the old people can't do it anymore.

That makes sense but there's not NO young people. Just a few hundred million. And you have to know the demographics. If the older people die off eventually there would be parity among ages generally.
when the earth starts spilling over with too many people, i wonder when everyone will start looking at the real problem issue there.

extending peoples lifespans unnaturally instead of allowing them a dignified death.
How long do you really want to live?

I'm thinking I'd like the under on 75 right now. I for sure don't want to outlive my body or brains.

And BillyGoat is right. Infinite growth is not the way to go.

Mother Earth will correct herself when need be, and all of us people will go the way of the dinosaurs a lot quicker than the dinosaurs did.

People are toxic.

Overpopulation is basically a myth at this point. Roughly 2 billion children are born every 15 years globally. This rate has been consistent for over 30 years. As long as the rate remains somewhat steady, and there is no reason to believe it won't, overpopulation is nothing to worry about.

Check out this doc for more on the subject.

It really depends on genetics and lifestyle. If you take care of yourself, most people can probably maintain sound body and mind well into their 80s. Just imagine all of the wisdom one would possess at that point.
I think the issue is the aging population out-weighing the younger generations, putting more strain on resources. With 'advances' in geriatrics, we're keeping the bastards alive longer than what's natural.

There's a ton of oldies in Asia that live till a ripe old age, but they need care. Got to pump out the kids and get them trained up as aged care workers if people are going to stay alive longer and longer.

I think China's worry is that the oldies are going to cost a bit economically if they don't act on it soon.

Here's a link with some stats on the changing balance of age groups: http://www.un.org/esa/population/publica...teriii.pdf
The world over in civilized countries the population is aging.

We‘re going to have to pay the piper sometime as a result.
the young people in china now are likely conditioned to the policy and will probably be more aware of keeping the population in check regardless, how long that mindset lasts is anyone's guess
