SELECTED IDEAS OF BUCKMINSTER FULLER
CONCLUSION
ENERGY VS POPULATION

Fuller noticed while reviewing available global statistics

 that as an area's per capita energy consumption increased,

 the average birth rate for that area decreased!

This fact has held true for every country of the world

 as it went through the process of industrialization.

As the world's energy/capita goes up, the world's birth rate will go down.
