    UN predicts huge migration to rich countries



    At least 2.2 million migrants will arrive in the rich world every year from now until 2050, the United Nations said yesterday.

    Britain's population will rise from 60 million to approaching 69 million by 2050 - almost entirely because of immigration.

    The latest figures from the UN's population division predicts a global upheaval without parellel in human history over the next four decades.

    There will be billions more people in Africa, Asia and the Middle East. Of these, tens of millions will migrate to Europe and America, while the indigenous populations of most countries in the rich world will either stagnate or decline.

    In total, the world's population will grow by 2.5 billion and reach about 9.2 billion by 2050.

    This increase - almost all of which will occur in Africa, Asia and the Middle East - is the equivalent of the global population in 1950.

    While some countries will grow exponentially, others will shrink dramatically.

    The UN predicts the steady depopulation of vast areas of eastern Europe and the former Communist world, as a result of high levels of emigration and birth rates running persistantly below replacement levels.

    Bulgaria's population will fall by 355 by 2050. Ukraine's will plummet by 33%, russia's by 1/4 and Ploand's by 1/5. There will bre 105 fewer Germans and 7% fewer Italians.

    But the flow of migrants across borders will dramatically increase the populations of other developed countries.

    "The population of the more develope regions is expected to remain largely unchanged at 1.2 billion, and would have declined, were it not for the projected net migration from developing to developed countries," sain the UN.

    The level of sustained, mass migration across borders that the world will experience over the next four decades is unprecendented.

    Between 1970 and 1980, the rich world took about one million migrants a year from poor countries. During the next 43 years, immigration will run at more than twice that level and approach 2.3 million every year from now until 2050.

    Of these migrants, some 400,000 will leave Africa every year and about 1.2 million will emigrate from Asia. The gap in wealth and opportunity between the rich and poor worlds will be the most significant "pull factor" behind this change. But the pressure exerted by rapidly rising populations in developing countries will also be an important underlying cause.

    By 2050, India will have the highest population in the world, totalling almost 1.7 billion people. There will be 292 million Pakistanis, giving their country the fifth biggest population. nigeria will have 289 million people - making it the world's sixth most populous country - and Uganda's population will rise to 93 million, comfortably exceeding the totals in both its larger neighbors, Kenya and Tanzania.

    This massive population growth will lead to land degration on a huge scale and place an immence strain on the limited water resources of poor countries. Malawi cannot feed its prsent population of 13 million - and every year its soils become more degraded and yeilds steadily fewer crops.

    By 2050, the UN forecasts that it will have almost 32 million people - more than twice as many as today. Population growth on this scale will almost certainly leave Malawi permanently dependent on international food aid to keep millions of its people alive.

    The UN's population predictions have proved largely accurate in the past. While the margin of error for these figures runs into the millions, the broad trends they disclose are undisputed.

    I don't believe it. They can plan or approximate, but people have had enough of Immigration already. If these levels continue, it won't be long before we have Yugoslavias all across Europe, ready to blow up in ethnic violence.

    'UN predicts huge migration to rich countries'

    I have a suggestion for them and their overpopulation problem - stop breeding so much! I am sure they do so with the expectation that they can just come and leech off Europe's generous welfare systems.

    Here, Here. It would be a nice moment to surpass China. Part of the population increase would be due to illegal infilteration from Bangladesh.Probably 500 million mulims.

    AW: UN predicts huge migration to rich countries

    I guess that in the end, nature (or the autoregulation of socio-ecologic systems) will restrict excessive growth in one way or another.

    I'm just reading Jared Diamond's (OMG another Jew! ) book "Collapse" where he deals among other things with the fate of the Easter Island and other places where human settlements destroyed themselves mainly through excessive consumption of natural resources and overpopulation.

    The population of the Easter Island first exploded to about 30,000 which led to a complete depletion of natural resources and then, through generations of starving, civil wars, cannibalism dropped to about 1,000 which, in the end were reduced to about 100 when European adventurers imported a few nasty diseases to which the natives had no antibodies.

    On a larger scale, countries like India, China, Indonesia, most Subsaharan countries will probably suffer a similar fate if they don't start controlling their growth at some point. If they don't act very soon, a West that will be weakened by mass immigration and social disintegration will not even be able to help them out of their mess anymore (and why should it, when they knew it all before, but simply didn't care?)

    Not a very pleasing prospect for Europeans, but probably in that case Asians and Africans will be driving Europe or Americas. The key is in numbers. One European politician recently said, 'multiply and prosper'. But for that one needs to take responsibility.
