The latest projected doomsday is 2030, according to the United Kingdom's top government scientist.

"Our food reserves are at a 50-year low," UK science adviser John Beddington tells the Guardian, "but by 2030 we need to be producing 50% more food. At the same time, we will need 50% more energy, and 30% more fresh water.

"There are dramatic problems out there, particularly with water and food, but energy also, and they are all intimately connected."

Beddington is set to present his projections to a conference in Westminster tomorrow.

It's worth noting that similar projections made in earlier decades turned out to be wrong when increased access to contraceptives coupled with malaria and HIV epidemics to slow population growth.
