Yes and the human population is rapidly increasing at a higher and higher increment every year.

Population is increasing, certainly. However the rate of growth has been dropping for some time now.

The world’s population has grown exponentially in the last 100 years, but the rate of growth has declined drastically in recent decades and is expected to continue decreasing through the middle of the 21st century.

That's weird. I guess there are still more babies being made than their parents.

Not so. We passed peak child in 2015. Technically humanity is now heading for extinction.

I don't know what to think anymore. Everyone is saying something different!
But, uh...well there it is.

If you extend that graph out into the future the blue line will peak and start going down.  To quote C3PO, "we're doomed!"

We have a long way to go in the population dropping before we have to start worrying about genetic diversity.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

The human race was possibly down to 2000 individuals 150 000 yesrs ago.

"... probably due to climate change ..."

That's pretty low diversity!

By then we'll all be gene edited and optimised anyway. It's conceivable that in the next millennia gene optimisation for humans will be the norm not the exception. In 150,000 years we may not even be recognisable as humans.
