I am convinced that over-population lies at the heart of our problems here on Planet Earth. At the end of THE MESSAGE I’ve challenged us to look for and share ideas/thoughts about how we will fulfill Kiran’s vision (page 105).
In THE MESSAGE, which I hope you have read, in the blinking of an eye Earth’s population is reduced to one billion people.
In FUTURE CHRONICLES, THE FIRST FIVE HUNDRED YEARS OF THE AGE OF SPACE (future history, not science fiction), which I hope to publish in September of next year, in not much longer time the population of our home planet is brought to two billion people.
I maintain that three billion people will be optimum, but expect that we will stabilize Earth’s population at eight billion by the year 2030 and that we will reach an optimum population of three billion people by the end of the Fifth Century of The Age of Space—about four hundred fifty years from now.
