Yes China's population is set to shrink as the single child generation, and the few of their single kids who are female, reach child bearing age. But that's great for them as they will be scarce workers, should command good pay - and pressure to pollute both China and the world should recede as the population stops growing. Win Win Win.

Now of course Africa's population will continue to grow.

Yes and growing so fast it completely outweighs all countries that have very slightly reducing populations. Global population is still increasing at 75 million a year.

But little is produced or consumed there due to the poverty there.

Well, plenty of mining going on. But poverty yes, and with the ever increasing populations they can't grow their economies fast enough to get out of poverty. So what's in store ... vast unhappy overflowing populations watching Hollywood movies and hearing how some European countries are the happiest on earth ... migration probably isn't even into second gear yet ...

In case of interest, the Global Times is the Chinese Communist Party's major international propaganda outlet. Not everything in it is going to be false ... but not everything in it is going to be impartial either.
