By the middle of this century, the world’s population is expected to reach close to 10 billion, which is “unsustainable,” according to U.S. special climate envoy John Kerry, who then outlined his long-term goals for the globe.
The population of the world has officially surpassed eight billion since November, which is more than three times the number in 1950.
According to U.N. forecasts, the population will reach 9.7 billion by the middle of the century, according to AFP. Kerry expressed his concerns to the publication. He stated:
“I personally don’t think it’s sustainable.”
“We need to determine how we’ll handle the sustainability issue and the number of people we’re attempting to care for on the planet.”
Kerry followed by using Africa as an illustration of unsustainable growth in population and the strain it places on food supply networks as the key to feeding individuals in a sustainable manner.
Previously, those who advocated for promoting behavioral change to slow population increase campaigned for eating less while accepting alternatives as a potential solution.
“I’ve traveled to a lot of African nations where they’re really proud of their rising birth rate, but the fact is, it’s unsustainable for life now, let alone when you include the future numbers,” Kerry remarked.
The 79-year-old said, “I’m not suggesting the population decrease. I believe that we have the life that we have on Earth. We must value life, and there are so many better ways to do so than we now do.”

The former secretary of state under the age of Barack Obama, who failed the election for president in 2004 to George W. Bush, previously assuaged doubters that his concern for food and its production does “not necessarily” entail that people should stop eating red meat because of the emissions produced by intensive farming.
When questioned by BBC’s Andrew Marr in a 2021 interview whether “the harsh truth, Mr. Kerry, is that Americans simply need to consume less meat” because of agricultural emissions, Kerry replied, “not necessarily.”
“A lot of studies are now being done that will alter how meat is produced and how cattle are controlled and fed.” According to Breitbart News, “Research is underway that significantly reduces the total amount of methane,” Kerry stated.
Then Kerry said, “We are unaware of some of the answers.” He continued by explaining:
“But I can assure you that the United States of America is not merely establishing a goal but also moving quickly toward it in order to decrease all of our emissions, achieve carbon neutrality in the power sector by 2035, and follow the example set by other nations, including Europe and other regions, in order to reach net zero as soon as possible.”
Norway is one European nation that is already rushing to modify the dietary habits of its people.
According to research released this week by Norway’s environment agency, the nation’s 5.5 million people may follow dietary recommendations from health authorities and save carbon emissions by the equivalent of 4.5 million tonnes between 2024 and 2030.
The most avid meat consumers would be advised to limit their weekly consumption of red meat to no more than 500 grams.
