OVERPOPULATION Problem The problem is that people in the world are hungry and starving. 1.1 billion of them have no access to clean water. It seems that the higher the nuber of population the lower the standard of living. More than 3.6 billion people have just enough to eat while 1 billion are living in poverty. About 98% of the world's child deaths occurred in developing countries. 10 and 30 million children die each year from starvation and disease.

Importance of the Problem: You have to know and understand the problem so you can defeat it in this case overpopulation is the exes of an specie on an area small enough for everybody. Overpopulation a problem for many countries, affects our society because each time is less resources and less space so the government has to take more laws and new rules so they can stop this enormous problem. It also affects our environment because if there are more people more electricity is used, more cars are driving, more water is wasted and contamination increase with each people is born on an overpopulated country.

" The FAO estimates that by 2020, 135 million people may lose their land as a result of soil degradation. " Of the 20 countries that rank highest on the 2011 Failing States Index (published by Foreign Policy magazine), all but one have a total fertility rate of 3.5 or higher. " Between 1999 and 2011, the world! s population increased by 1 billion " 1983 Year that world grain production per person began to decline(ecofuture.org) " 1985 Year that humanity's demand for resources first exceeded supply(mec.ca) " 1989 Year that world fish catch per person began to decline(ecofuture.org) " 1999 Year that the world population reached 6 billion (US Census Bureau) " 2012 Year that the world population will reach 7 billion(US Census Bureau) " 2050 Year that the world population will reach 9.2 billion(US Census Bureau) " 3 Days for the world population to increase by that of San Francisco " 6 Months for the world population to increase by that of California " 200,000 World population growth each day " The richest 20 percent of humanity consumes 86 percent of all goods and services, while the poorest fifth consumes just 1.3 percent.

HISTORICAL ARTICLE Overpopulation is a huge problem to many countries, because of the resources. There are not many resources for everyone, because of overpopulation in many cities. This problem started, about the years 1900, and grew bigger and bigger throughout that hole century. At the begging of the 2000ths, this was a uncontrollable problem . From the last century, it has increased about 5,000 people. It started because of resources, there were many sources for everyone, but rich people began to take much more than poor did, so it became a problem. Poor people with less resources, reproduced more, and faster. This is why there is always poverty. It will always maintain or increase, but probably not decrease. Also, medicine appears in that time, so there has been less dead people. In that time, people got sick, and the tribe thought it was a punishment from, life, so they let that person die and it was good, because the population didn! t increased. But when medicine came, they just give it to that person, he didn! t die and no death was caused. Technology developed helped people live better lives, give birth easier, and also, no deaths. Now, thanks to this technology, many people from poor countries, migrated to wealthy countries like USA, UK, Australia, China, etc. in those cities, the places got to get overcrowded. Another reason for overpopulation is that poor people doesn! t know how to plan families. So they just reproduce how they like and want. They make kids marry at a really early age, and reproduce at the really early age. All of this causes, lead to the huge global issue, overpopulation. This issue causes other problems like, global warming, water scarcity, food production, fishery depletion, etc. This other issues can lead to others, and cause uncontrollable issues like overpopulation. Some countries have developed solutions like China placed a law saying that you can only have one kid. Not more because if you have more then the government will not help them in any economical situations. There are not many solutions but, the few there are, they are good and hard to produce. By placing laws, like China, or teach poor people how to plan a family, or using cintraceptives, or having teachers teach sexual education to kids, can help this problem but not end it, it is endless and we've got to do something about it.

EDITORIAL Over population is the excessive population in an area, overcrowding, diminution of natural resources and environmental decline. 850 million people in the world are hungry and starving, and 1.1 billion of them have no access to clean water. There are 7 billion of people inhabiting on earth and this continue increasing every second. Every time 2 people die 4 are born in seconds. Over 200 years ago population was only 1/7 of the population today. It! s been estimated that population grows 74 millions of people a year. The problem of this is that population continues growing but resources and earth don! t. This issue causes many world problems as diminishing food and fresh water sources, disease, epidemics and environmental pollution. Overpopulation is a controversial issue discussion. Because of overpopulation many animals have become extinct as rainforests and many lands are gone or destroyed, another cause of this is that air and water are seriously polluted.

NEWS Overpopulation I s taking us to the end of our resources, this is a problem that increase each year more and more. Every 12 years we are adding one billion people to earth; this is round 220,000 per day. This is a lot to be done in only 12 years. Our food is going down with the time, and the earth is running out of water. 25,000 humans die each day because of their economic status, they don! t have money to feed themselves or their children, this helps overpopulation but death is not a solution. Poor people suffer because of hunger and malnutrition an effect of not having money, they don! t have money because they don! t have a job, they don! t have a job because over population. Over population affect us on even the minimum things for example parking in a super maxi or a mall, it takes forever to find a parking. A law was established by the Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping, this law was established on 1979 so he can stop the overpopulation on china. This law is named one child policy. You can only have one child, if you disobey this law the government would deny you for example they wouldn! t pay you schools, medicine etc. In conclusion overpopulation is not affecting china but the rest of the world to, the government of each country should take a decision about this issue before is too late, but taking on mind that death is not a solution.

STATISTICS Overpopulation has become one of earth main problems these problem is huge is affecting all of us in a big way there are too many persons for these earth and not enough resources money food some persons live in terrible situations something that you won! t imagine. In some countries this problem is worse than in other countries one of the countries that is suffering the most is china it! s so over populated they put sues for persons that have more than 1 kid. In these graph you may see how in few years the population have increased a whole lot these graph shows how we could be in a few years if we steel have these probe imagine 9000 million persons! I mean is this world so big? It! s estimated that in the next 4 years Asia population will increase so much that there will be more persons in Asia that in the entire world combined. Other problem is that the overpopulation is more common in poor countries the average of kids poor persons have is five or six kids while wealthy people have an average of three kids. In just a few years over population have increased in a seventy five percent and our world is feeling the effects because of overpopulation the other global issues are so bad an example is fishery depletion if there was no overpopulation there would not be the need for fishing that much and that problem will not be as big as is it today the world population is so big there are places in Asia persons live like dogs they live horribly with no clean water. As well there is a big demand for electric light and with so many people the amount of energy needed for that is huge. Other problem is contamination with so much persons just in two years contamination have increase a fifty percent and the realize of CO2 is affecting the world as well. Over population comes with a huge amount of problems and we need to stop this!!
