Most of the world's problems are caused by overpopulation. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
Over the last century there has been a remarkable rise in population growth around the world. This dramatic increase in the number of people on the planet has caused many critical problems. This essay will address those problems, and outline my agreement with the position that, as a matter of the utmost urgency, the world has to deal with the issues of too many people and finite resources.
Firstly, it is irrefutable that poverty, along with hunger, are two of the most critical consequences of overcrowding. In many developing countries, where family planning schemes are lacking, population growth is endemic. For instance, the Indian population grows by around 15 million each year, and has overtaken the growth in the Chinese population by a factor of four. However, these are not just some Third-World problems, but difficulties the whole world, as a community, needs to address.
Secondly we can also point to the serious environmental problems created by this phenomenal population growth. We can point to issues such as increased pollution levels which can be attributed to the overuse of carbon fuels and the large amounts of plastics and rubbish generated in such societies. Furthermore, in the effort to feed the hosts of people on this planet, the focus on factory and intensive farming methods is being cited as a key factor in climate change.
In conclusion, I strongly agree that overpopulation has placed an enormous burden on each citizen and the environment, and this aspect is at the root of many of the world’s problems.
