World Urbanization Prospects: The 2018 Revision (File 5: Total Population at Mid-Year by Region, Subregion, Country and Area, 1950-2050, thousands)

The Population Division of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs of the United Nations has been issuing since 1988 revised estimates and projections of the urban and rural populations of all countries in the world and of their major urban agglomerations. This web site presents the main findings of the 2018 Revision of World Urbanization Prospects which are consistent with the size of the total population of each country as estimated or projected in the 2017 Revision of World Population Prospects (United Nations, 2017). The World Urbanization Prospects are used widely throughout the United Nations and by many international organizations, research centres, academic researchers and the media. Online op:

De Klimaatparadox in de Week van het Zeeuwse boek

Compilatie van ingezonden brieven in Elsevier Weekblad

Naar aanleiding van mijn artikel over De Klimaatparadox in Elsevier Weekblad van 15 november 2018 zijn er veel ingezonden brieven binnengekomen. De redactie maakte een representatieve compilatie.

Repliek op De Klimaatparadox: "Is the world's population explosion threatening our climate efforts?"

Is the world’s population explosion threatening the efforts we’re about to do to save the climate for further warming up? “It doesn’t matter how many people live on earth, as long as we manage to create a society without burning fossil fuels, it’s the fastest way to success”, historian Peter van Druenen states in an opinion article in De Standaard. According to the Dutch historian, specialized in climate matters and author of ‘The Climate Paradox’ (De klimaatparadox),”The world’s population should go down to save the planet. Couples should have fewer children to decrease their ecological footprint” are often heard statements. But they are incorrect.
