It seems like an eternity since I last contacted you all on behalf of Population Crisis. Please excuse me for not communicating earlier but I have had to contend with a lot of important issues, not least, letting the world catch up with the Population Crisis predictions.
POPULATION CATCH UP
- 1. Look at the Video “There are 8 billion people on Earth, but soon we’ll hit a decline we might never reverse” by ABC News” https://youtu.be/n5DXniZGkME.
- Look at the UN Population graphs at the end of this newsletter.
- Read the United Nations, Department of Economic and Social Affairs “World Population Prospects 2022. (You can download this report from the website www.unpopulation.org).
NEWS ON POPULATION
UN POPULATION PROJECTIONS AND POPULATION VIDEO REVIEW.
Many videos have been produced on the topic of Overpopulation since Population Crisis produced its own films. I would like to draw your attention to one such video which ranks well above the others and this is: “There are 8 billion people on Earth, but soon we’ll hit a decline we might never reverse” by ABC News” https://youtu.be/n5DXniZGkME.
THE WORLD IS GOING BACKWARDSS
WHY PEOPLE IN WESTERN SOCIETIES ARE NOT HAVING CHILDREN
OTHER FILMS WORTH WATCHING.
If you haven’t already seen this video, “New Rule: Let the Population Collapse | Real Time with Bill Maher (HBO”, I really recommend that you see it. It is absolutely hilarious!)
INTERVIEW WITH JAPANESE PROFESSOR OF SUPERCENTENARIANS
- Elderly people should try and remain within the community as long as possible.
- People should retire as late as possible in order to improve their health prospects and eventual funds for their retirement.
- Education helps elderly people retain a clear mind. He has noted that those people who write books have much sharper minds.
- Elderly people should have a chance of becoming actively involved with people in the community and visa-versa.
- The biological limit of supercentenarians has probably reached its limit although the limit of the number of people reaching 100 in Japan is anticipated to increase to at least 150,000 before it levels off.
- He believes that one of the main problems for people reaching 100 is that there is not enough money to cope with their needs. By far the most important financial burden are the increased medical cost that come with increasing age. Although the diseases suffered by the elderly do not necessarily there is still a substantial increase in medical cost as they age. This is because elderly people become far more frail and disabled as they grow older and so require extra help.
- Robots can help provide some solutions to easing the burden of nursing people in their old age. It is hoped that Population Crisis will have a chance to return to Japan in order to film the Japanese departments involved with the innovative robotic technology that can help with mobility and nursing of the elderly.
- Currently elderly people have a problem with applying new technology such as iPhone and computers as they get older although Professor Arai did emphasise that he could not venture to say what might happen in the future.
- Japan needs a lot more carers for the elderly. The number of nursing helpers from the Philippines who come to Japan to help with the elderly is currently not sufficient to meet the needs of the elderly.
- Professor Arai concludes the interview with the following statement.
- “He does not know how the general health and mental agility of people approaching 100 will change in the future BUT that he did state that he was utterly amazed at the physical nimbleness, incredible co-ordination, spryness and dexterity of some of his elderly who has studied approaching 100 years old.”
