Population of India to overtake China less than a decade

India is set to overtake China as the world’s most populous country in less than a decade – six years sooner than previously forecast…That’s just one of the findings from the United Nations latest population report…Another surprise, fast-growing Nigeria is on course to outstrip the US to become the country with the third largest population, by about 2050.

Underlying threat of climate change is continuing population explosion. Inequality is supposed to have been improved, the only way people in developing countries recognise opportunity being more attractive than having children. Some progress has been made but not fast enough.
