I would bet that we'll have a worldwide pandemic of something seriously antibiotic resistant within 20 years or so.  It'll knock off around 1-2 billion of the world's population, mostly clustered in the areas like Mumbai, or Bayonne, or anywhere else they routinely chuck corpses into the river to dispose of 'em.  Panic and social disorder will account for a few tens of millions of those deaths.
That should relieve population pressures for a while.  Of course, it will be used as a vehicle to enact stupid, evil, or religiously-based laws.  But I repeat myself.  Anyway, it will entirely be the fault of Westerners insistence on a cheap-all-meat diet, combined with helicoptery parents who demand an antibiotic every time their child gets a sniffle or an owie.  Oh, and the lawyers.  Yes, it'll be their fault, too.  Hopefully the bacteria will be selectively lethal towards members of bar associations.  One can dream.

What were we talking about again?  Schtupping?  Good Lord, I hope when the pandemic comes, it isn't an STD.  Countries be bannin' sex if that happens.

Mad_Radhu: OdradekRex: Nature generally finds a way to re-balance. On a geologic time scale, humans are a recent arrival. Though we're clever, we still can't cure a single virus. Everntually, time and mutation will create one that we won't be able to deal with. The Spanish Flu wiped out more people after WWI than the war did. Preview of coming attractions?

Smallpox and polio got cured pretty effectively, as have a whole host of childhood illnesses. We've just started unlocking a lot of secrets of genetics and the immune system. Eventually, we're going to figure out some nice magic bullets for the more complicated viruses. We were a little spoiled by the low hanging fruit of the first few viruses we created effective vaccines for, but the next couple of decades could result in some really nice medical advances as we figure out more key things about the human body. Biology is complicated, sure, but I don't think it is an ineffable mystery.


And once we get past Robotics and Fusion, it's just Future Technology 1, Future Technology 2, etc, from here on out!

Potter82: Some good news for a change. The world needs less people. A lot less people.


War, then?

I suggest Africa first, build a strong fort at the Canal, and then spread East, hoping for high rolls. If you can take Australia bloodlessly, then you have a deserted base for flight operations into the mainland East.

It will be bloody and violent and the human race will become extinct.

Schtroumpf -Gessellschaft: The population not only gets smaller, but bluer. Finally, there is only one female for every 150 males.

While it seems alarmist, I think a total civilizational collapse is more likely than a minor drop in population. Once the population starts to fall, you get in a negative feedback loop -- fewer people equals less technology, plus environmental degradation equals less easily arable land and fertile fishing grounds equals fewer people, etc.

See "Collapse" by Jared Diamond for any number of historical precedents.

I don't think we'd ever come back, either. All the low-hanging resource fruit is gone. It's gonna be hunting and gathering for you, homo sapiens, until the star goes dim.
