The aim of this essay is to give an overview of the issue what threats does overpopulation opposes? First let us first know what does overpopulation mean. It generally means the condition where the organism’s number exceeds the carrying capacity of the habitat, which will cause a population crash. The population is growing by approximately 74 million people per year. This is one of the most important issues in the world that not many people or concerning and caring about. The most important thing that the people need is a safe environment and habitat but this issue is affecting and impacting the environment of earth that we are living on. If we don’t take to consider of this issue then there will be threats opposing overpopulation. For more than five decades, Paul R. Ehrlich has been alerting people to the importance of overpopulation and the threats that it may pose. In his 1968 best seller, The Population Bomb, biologist Paul Ehrlich more specifically declared, "In the 1970s and 1980s, hundreds of millions of people will starve to death in spite of any crash programs embarked upon now." Famines on that scale never arrived. The most important question in this essay is what are the threats that overpopulation will pose? Poverty is one main problem, if the number of people exceeds the capacity of the environment or habitat then there will be a huge number of demands and not all the people will have their needs fulfilled, and countries will be unable to provide services for all the people, which will lead to great poverty. Another threat is air pollution. Basically it is a chain effect. If more people are born, more people emit waste and throw out garbage. This will lead to bad health issues. And any issue that causes damage to the health of a person must be solved as soon as possible. Overpopulation may cause scarcity. Scarce food sources and loss of habitat as will occur mentioned that there will be more demand and not everyone will be given all the needs
of overpopulation is scarcity of resources. Available resources will not be sufficient to meet the demand of rising population In most of the third world countries one of the major causes of famine is over population, so most all of the world's problems today are the result that. Too many people in the world do not have food to eat, and that would be a significant problem. If a country has more people than what should be, it will cause a famine. For example, in Africa, there is overpopulation which….
