Solutions for Overpopulation
50 years ago, the world population was 2.5 billion. 25 years ago it was 4.8 billion. And 10 years ago it was 6billion. Do you know how many people are living in the world?
Almost 7billion people are living in it now. And many researchers predict that the world population will increase to 8.5billion in 2020. This is an amazing number. Although 50 years ago, the world population was 2.5billion, it has been rising steadily.
This is a chart of population density by country:
The above data is about density of the world population. This picture shows that Asian countries play a key role in the increase in world population. In fact, Asia accounts for 60% of the world’s population. Besides, China and India’s population are almost 2.5 billion. Now it is inevitable that we are facing overpopulation. But, what is overpopulation? It is not simply population density (amount of people per landmass), but rather the number of people in an area relative to its resources and the capacity of the environment to sustain human activities. Nowadays, overpopulation causes many problems in the environmental and an exhaustion of resources. We shouldn’t overlook this problem, and we need to understand correctly about this. There are also some myths about population. At first, I would like to share some myths in next paragraph.
