gadgets growing faster than people: we are at 2 births per second now or 1.2% annually worldwide

Gadgets like tablets, smartphones and not-so-smart phones are multiplying five times faster than we are, with our population growing at a rate of about two people per second, or 1.2% annually.

end partial quote from:

There are officially more mobile devices than people in the world | The ...

If I did the math correctly this means world populations will double within 83.3333 etc. years.

So, I guess this means that 83 1/3 years from now or 2100 about march or april we should be at 14 plus billion people on earth.


However, that is very unlikely without us living underground and using all surface area for growing food where applicable. I think the maximum the world can support is about 13 billion people with everyone living underground using the surface only for transportation and growing food and recreation and that's all.

So, you can see there is going to be a whole lot of turmoil this century of various kinds because a lot of people likely are going to starve the way things presently are on earth. And many many people especially terrorists aren't going to go quietly into starvation worldwide either. So, get ready for a whole lot of turmoil worldwide.

HOwever, anyone who lives in the equatorial regions will likely be living underground anyway and only coming out during the night when it is cooler because temperatures in summers are going to be 130 to 150 degrees Fahrenheit by 2100 there. And if surface humidity reaches 80% to 100% any people on the surface in the equator regions won't survive without special suits with air conditioning built in during the day time.  Or I suppose some might survive with ice cubes in their hats to keep their brains cool enough so they don't just stop functioning and just die right there on the spot.

IF you have actually had to survive in 120 degrees or more without an air conditioner you know exactly how iffy this is during any 24 hour period exposed to this much heat.
