Scientists Warn Global Fertility Crisis Threatens 97% of World Population – EVOL

Scientists are sounding the alarm over a global fertility crisis that is posing a major threat to the human race.

Global fertility is declining, with most of the world’s population now under threat, a team of leading American scientists warns.

Over half of all countries and territories are experiencing rates below replacement levels since 2021.

By 2050, it is projected that 75 percent of the world’s fertility rates will be insufficient to maintain population levels.

Scientists from the Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington, Seattle, have warned of a looming global fertility crisis.

They warn that the crisis is threatening to reshape population dynamics by the end of the century.

The findings of the peer-reviewed study were published in the world-renowned medical journal The Lancet on Wednesday.

The study suggests that fertility rates are plummeting in almost all countries below the levels required to sustain current population numbers.

Stein Emil Vollset, senior researcher and co-lead author of the study from the IHME emphasizes that this trend will sharply contrast nations experiencing a “baby boom” and those facing a “baby bust.”

Low-income countries, already grappling with economic and political instability, are expected to see a surge
