1.5°C by 2026? Already +1.25°C in 2021: What You Are Not Being Told Other Than By Greta Thunberg et al., And Why Not.

I started out wondering how much temperatures have risen so far, what is the best estimate for when will reach +1.5°C , and how bad is +1.5°C anyway. I expected that finding the first two answers would be easy, but it was not. I found the answers, and why they were not easy to find.

I found that with warming at +1.0 in Paris in 2015, +1.5 logically seemed 50 years away, but in 2021 just 6 years later, we are halfway there at +1.25°C. Much changed during the Covid-19 distraction, and at this rate +1.5°C is set to be here by 2026, not the 2050 predicted at Paris.

Peak Population: We May Never Return.

For the environment, our peak population will be a nightmare. This page explores alternatives for the future of population, and the possibility that the current peak population will be the last time there are ever this many humans on Earth.

Optimum Population: nature’s birth control.

What controls population in nature? Why is overpopulation rare? Predation and resource constraint are commonly suggested answers, but in practice these alone would result in repeated huge population swings.

Human birth rates are falling at a rate that has some fearing population collapse, but is there reason for alarm, or might this be a natural response to the threat of overpopulation?

Determining whether our future is population one of continued growth, collapse, or stability, almost certain requires understanding lessons from nature and examining how they apply to us.

Population on a Finite World: No Vacancies.

Every niche on Earth where life is possible, fills to maximum capacity with life, meaning except for brief periods following Earth changing events, there have been no ‘vacant’ liveable environments for over 4 billion years. Any increase in population of one species, requires a reduction in numbers of other species, in a process Darwin declared “survival of the fittest”.

One Finite Planet: Why the site title?

One, because given it took 4 billion years before life could exist on the surface of this planet, it is going to take a long time to ever find another.

Finite, because no matter how obvious it is the planet is finite, it is large enough for us to mistakenly overlook that the planet being finite impacts everything from the environment to the economy.
