Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

It seems to be an article about fertility, ignoring the likelihood of pandemic, war, or climate-induced starvation.

A cynical view might be that for the last 75 years or so, most of the global population has avoided widespread disease outbreaks because of the development of antibiotics, which now appears unsustainable. And that we have avoided widespread war because of a series of economic accidents related to the Cold War. And that we have avoided mass starvation because of the Green Revolution, also possibly not sustainable.

We are in a situation now where three of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse are in a race. (The fourth, Spiritual Death, has already won the first heat.) By which catastrophe is humanity going to fail?

Relatively minor changes in fertility rates aren't going to be the controlling factor.
