Bevölkerungswachstum - Anzahl Menschen auf der Erde

Eine der grössten Herausforderungen für die Menschheit wird die Bewältigung der Zunahme der Weltbevölkerung in den nächsten 50 bis 100 Jahren - oft auch als Bevölkerungsexplosion bezeichnet - darstellen. Im Jahre 1050 lebten noch etwa 2.5 Milliarden Menschen auf der Erde, im Jahre 2007 waren es bereits ca. 6 Milliarden Menschen. Bis im Jahre 2050 wird sich die Weltbevölkerung nochmals um 50%, auf ca. 9 Milliarden Menschen vergrössern.

Mit der Zunahme der Weltbevölkerung steigt auch der Ressourcenverbrauch, z.B. für Nahrung, Kleider, Energie, Lebensraum usw. und mehr Menschen werden auch mehr Abgase, mehr Abfälle, usw. produzieren. Auf die damit verbundene Problematik kommen wir in diversen anderen Artikeln auf Wendezeit.ch zu sprechen.

Wir zeigen zunächst das Wachstum der Bevölkerung nach Erdteilen von 1950 bis 2050. Die zweite Graphik zeigt die Bevölkerungsdichte (Anzahl Einwohner pro Quadratkilometer Fläche) wiederum pro Erdteil und von 1950 bis 2050.
