World Population Lab : Power of the Pyramids
The population of the world is slowly increasing. As the population grows the demands of the population grow. People need land to live on, wood for furniture ,etc. For all this, people cut down a lot of trees. This is very harmful for the earth's environment for it reduces the amount of oxygen in comparison to that of carbon dioxide. Therefore, all this would lead to global warming. The estimated population of the world today is 6,873,811,738. As the world’s population grows, improving living standards without destroying the environment is a global challenge.
