Overpopulation – Global Issue
Overpopulation is becoming a global issue because over the years we have created more lives than resources. there will not be enough food for everyone.7 billion people on Earth now,and roughly one in eight of us don’t have enough to eat(Dimick, 2014). The population will keep on getting bigger by the time and we will have to be prepared to struggle or see others struggle. People have different opinions about populations like some say the population is getting bigger by its number and others think that population is decreasing but the real concern about population is that we will not have enough resources. There are 7 billion people and many more around the world.The population is really important because its the number of how many people are in the world. The number of people that are in the world is at least 7 billion people and won’t have enough resources for everyone.
Overpopulation is an issue that really doesn’t get enough attention. It’s a huge issue because there will not be enough food, water, and materials that are really needed. There’s hardly enough resources for some of us and if the population gets bigger to 11 billion there will not be enough resources for them. People should change by taking care of the resources that they have and not waste it because in the future there will not be enough for those resources.
The population will affect the people that will come in the future more because they will have to live in a world that can not give them what they need.Imagine walking outside and seeing people starving and thirsty because we took all the resources that were left Even though more than 800 million people worldwide don’t have enough to eat no(Dimick,2014). When companies do have resources they will overprice the products because they know the people are going to buy it because they think they need it for survival.
A solution to overpopulation could be in the statistics of the death rate.It would help everybody by decreasing the population so we will have enough resources for everybody. Even if it sounds really bad but sadly that’s what’s going to help us if we reach to 11 billion people because there will be enough resources for some people not for everybody, If right now people are going thru not having resources, what could we expect in the future when there are 11 billion people around the world? It would help decreased the population if the death of rates go down the birth rate has dropped considerably in countries of all income groups, but this has not translated into a decline in the global population because the death rate has dropped even faster, especially in low-income countries, as the graphic below shows(New York, 2017) If death rates helped the population decreased before then that would be a good help now.
The population would just keep on increasing by the time if nobody takes actions for it. Another solution to helping decreasing the population is by women having less kids because if there are fewer kids then there will be more resources for people that would need it and help them survive(Almost all countries have experienced reductions in family size, with 46% of the world’s population now living in countries with low levels of fertility(Carla Kweifio-Okai and Josh Holder, 2016) Population has been increasing by the time and would keep on increasing by the time and we would need to find a solution when the population has overpopulated because if we don’t it would affect us The current world population of 7.6 billion is expected to reach 8.6 billion in 2030, 9.8 billion in 2050 and 11.2 billion in 2100(New York, 2017). We have at least 7.6 billion people and people are already suffering from not having food and supplies they need.
There’s not really much attention to populations that has to have on. Everybody has kids not knowing what they would have to face later on life which would probably affect them or might not affect them depending on their circumstances. The population is really increasing fast. It took long for the population to grow but later on it was increasing faster than everIt took thousands of years for the first billions of people on earth, next billion it took one hundred years, now we add 1 billion people to the planet every twelve years(Paul, 2013) and if other kids come to the world they would use more resources that we will needNorth Americans use 32x resources from a developing country(Paul,2013). We use more resources than anybody but the fact that some people waste the resources not thinking what other people would do to have those resources.
Overpopulation is a big problem that has to be solved by society taking action. Over the years if overpopulation has not been solved we would go through having fewer resources. We would need to have fewer kids or more death rates if we want to solve overpopulation.
