DEMOGRAPHIC WINTER --NO LONGER A MATTER OF OPINION

A new documentary entitled "Demographic Winter the Decline of the Human Family" explores the worldwide demographic decline and is based upon interviews with academics, scholars, researchers, elected officials and civil and religious leaders from more than 30 countries. Demographic Winter is soon to be released and the trailer can be seen here.

According to the website:

"Worldwide, birth rate have been halved in the past 50 years. There are now 59 nations, with 44% of the world's population with below replacement fertility.

"Sometime in this century, the world's population will begin to decline. At a certain point the decline will become rapid. We may even reach population free-fall in our lifetimes.

"For some countries population decline is already a reality. Russia is losing three-quarters-of-a-million people a year. Its population (currently 145 million) is expected to fall by one-third by 2050."

"If present low birth rates persist, the European Union estimates there will be a continent-wide shortfall of 20 million workers by 2030.

"Who will operate the factories and farms in the Europe of the future? Who will develop the natural resources? Where will Russia find the soldiers to guard the frontiers of the largest nation on earth?

"Who will care for a graying population? A burgeoning elderly population combined with a shrinking work force will lead to a train wreck for state pension systems."

"While governments should make child-rearing easier, by lowering the tax-burden on families (out of self-interest if not fairness) cash incentives do not work."
