CHINAS RESPONSE TO OVERPOPULATION :: essays research papers
Introduction          Today so many children and people in the world suffer from poverty and starvation. In so many third world countrys families are going without food or good water. Never in the first place have we seen so many children die before the age of five. It is impossible to feed every of these mouths and clothe all of these backs. The world is full of natural resources at our disposal. These resources are taken for granted and not keep the way they should be. As a result, fossil fuels will not be available in a matter of years. Nature is missing links repayable to the extinction of many species, many we dont ever get a chance to learn about. More people means much products made in factories, more jobs needed, and more use of goods and services of this earths precious resources. Were are overcrowded We are overpopulated. Not to mention all of the disease that is spread through the poverty stricken slums that the malnourished go through in."We are already living with the consequences of human population growth. There are now so many people, that we were probably pretty much forced to make grow and give up smelly outhouses in favor of the more convenient and practical flush toilet. Sanitation workers are paid to collect the trash that huge cities of people generate, as large populations need proper sanitation."(Garrett Hardin) We try to regulate this epidemic by using birth-control and other devices, but we see what good all of that is doing. We ourselves are setting up for extinction. There must be a way to control the overpopulation. We should not be a disease to this planet. Do we not see the connections between science and society? Gaylord Nelson was quoted as saying, "The number one environmental problem facing the earth today would have to be population. Where on Earth Are We Going? He said the answer is "Its all up to us. The level of human population and the scale and intensity o f human natural action has reached a point where we are literally affecting the very conditions on which human life and well being depend. "The first major effect of overpopulation is consumption of valuable resources. This is one of the major causes of depletion of our natural resources. When mentioning consumption, we are referring to all the products we buy and use. In the United States, Americans consume far more than what is necessary.
