"The foreboding threat of world disaster from explosive population growth could turn out to be overly alarmist, say the authors of a new demographic study...It suggests that the total number of people may peak in 70 years or so at about 9 billion people, compared with 6.1 billion today... But some population experts are at odds with [the]conclusions, arguing there is no guarantee that population growth will stabilize before the end of the 21st century."
