You are basing your argument over things you predict will happen. How do you know that Nigeria will not reach one billion people by 2100?

Birthrates are still above replacement in the USA, China, and Brazil.

Birthrates have tended to actually increase in times of political instability, especially in developing countries. Since education and birth control policies are neglected, the birth rate tends to increase faster. This has been happening in Africa since World War 2.

How about we get back to the question you posed at the start of this thread?

How will the discussion on the worlds ever growing population, birthrates, developing countries roles, etc. effect water supplies, and thier relation to Oil in the future?
