Why is the population increasing rapidly?
Why is the Population increasing rapidly? isn’t something talk about in our daily conversation. This is one of the reason why I’m interested in this topic. So that I can learn more about it, and make sure that people learn more about it. I first heard this topic in my three period class Science. I think that many people know about this topic, but don’t really know the effects of it. I’m here to make it a little more clearer.
I know that Human population is an important topic. This topic is talk about in class so people could be aware. I also know that the Human population is affected by the rates of births and deaths.I also know that this question is obvious but it’s not going have a good result in the future. I also know that there are chart that show the increase of the human population. This is is what I know before my research on The increase of The Human Population?
Like I didn’t know so much about my topic, I came across an article called, “Human Population.” It talks about that as the population keeps increasing there will be more wars. In the wars we will continue to fight for natural resources due to having so many people living on Earth. This quote answer my question Why is the population increasing rapidly? “ That's what the human population has successfully been doing for thousands and thousands of years, expanding, exploring, migrating, conquering, utilizing, evolving, civilizing, industrializing, and now, destroying the very land upon which we live.” I also agree with this quote these thing are slowly damaging our Earth.
As I was doing more research I came across an article that supports my first one. “ Population Growth” is about how money and people are similar because they both grow rapidly. With money you start with some type of interest and then more interest expands. With people they grow up have babies and then have babies and how the human population increases. There also a big different between money and human. People are living thing and they depend on food and if there isn’t any people could die. This is quote that sum up the idea between money and people “ Any population of living creatures is constrained by the availability of food, water, land, or other important resources.” I totally agree human can’t live on this Earth without food. I also believe that “By the year 2000, there will be 10 times more people on Earth than there were 300 years ago.” This quote supports my question, the human population is increasing rapidly.
There were more article that talk about Human population. According to, “ Population Elephant in the Room” human use to much resources and it slowly effecting the future. The Earth doesn’t have a sustainable population. This mean that we don’t have enough resources to provide the people for so many years. This is because the Earth has an human overpopulation. There is also something called carrying capacity, largest number of individuals of a population that a given environment can support.There are charts that show that the human population is increasing rapidly.The net birth rate declines to zero year 2082. This show that as years goes the birth rate will eventually decrease but the Earth will still have lots of people. With Excess Death rate it increased and then decrease but at the the end the human population is still increasing. This quote show when the human population will decrease rapidly “The goal of the model has been met: it has achieved a sustainable world population of one billion by the year 2082.” This prove that human population is a working process.
One of the main reason of the increase of human population will always be birth rates. According to” Population Growth” if there isn’t as much birth rates it will impact the human population. A quote that supports this statement is “we find that the reduction in birth and fertility rate will have a much higher impact on population decline than other factors. The greatest risk to human population.” We may never know how to decrease our human population but we should know that we must watch ourselves. Since producing babies is a big part of life people shouldn’t really make children if deep down they know they not going care for them. Our resources are slowly disappearing so we must use them wisely.
As I was closing up my research there was an article that caught my eye, “Are we Overpopulated?”
This article believe that the Earth isn’t overpopulated. It is mention that we as the people believe everything we see in the media. It also talk about the spacing on Earth. There is many area where people could live. This article spoke out to me “First of all, people are not very smart these days, they tend to believe whatever the media tells them if it is presented on the 6:00 news followed by a PhD at the end of the name.” The article doesn’t show me anything that supports his statement .It doesn’t provide other article and it doesn’t even show charts analysis that prove that the Earth isn’t overpopulated. So I’m here to state the Earth is overpopulated due to my research.
I learn that our main problem is the increase of birth rates. We need to be more careful when it comes to babies. Our resources are slowly reducing we need to be aware of Human population.
