Earth's Current Population Equivalents Exceed 40 Billion
For sure the first thing we have to do is get the metrics right
so that we can properly diagnose, manage and remedy, if possible, our
population predicament. To do so, we must first understand that this is not about population
numbers at all. Rather it is all about "population equivalents," but so
long as the focus remains on person numbers, then we are doomed to head
down the wrong path with little hope of finding a cure. In the end, you
cannot remove a brain tumor by doing a heart transplant - it is just
not going to happen. There is no responsible economic organization or entity on this
planet that does not have an accounting system with metrics to
determine, monitor and control its status. So there is no good reason as
to why we should not work towards and apply similar concepts for the
whole planet as an initial way to get a handle on our planet's overall
situation. As a metric - "population equivalents" is a fairly
straightforward mathematical concept to apply as the prime unit of
measure within this overall planetary accounting system. Population equivalents should firstly allow us to start comparing
apples to apples and not to pears, turnips and potatoes. For example,
when the entropic/climate/resource footprint for each
developed nation person is estimated to be 34 times larger than a
underdeveloped nation's person - this comparison shows a huge gap in the
annual-planetary cost between these two person types to the planet.
The implications of this difference needs to be better understood and
managed based on objectives. As a medical professional you might start
with an old idea and goal like - LONGEVITY! Now consider the case when 100 million people migrate annually from
these underdeveloped nations to developed countries. That migration
alone has the equivalent impact of adding 3.4 billion people to the
underdeveloped nations population totals. Or you could also say it is
equal to the birth of 3.4 billion people in these underdeveloped
countries. Put in another way - the 1 billion people footprint of developed
nations calculates to an equivalent 34 billion people footprint in
underdeveloped countries. Thus, the planet's population size using
approximate actual numbers could be considered closer to 40 billion
people when population equivalent footprint measures are used.(1 billion developed plus, 6 billion underdeveloped people) BIG number? But now you be the doctor and tell the patient where you think the problem is - Heart or Brain?
So in order to get things right, we first and foremost need to start
measuring properly. Moreover, it is a "conceptual technology" that has
been well-developed by the medical profession, among others, over many
years. So why not apply it to the most important patient we know? In short, we need to go beyond checking the patient's brain condition
based on its pulse rate and advance ourselves to using proper clinical
metrics and devices to better diagnose and remedy our sickly patient. In so doing, we may then stand an improved chance of extending its life. It is your call now ... Doctor! First Financial Insights December 10, 2013
