Overpopulation is a problem!

Human population is growing like never before. We are now adding One Billion people to the planet every 12 years. That's about 220,000 per day. The list of problems this is causing or at least complicating, is a long one. It includes shortages of all our resources, war and social conflict. Limits on personal freedom, overcrowding and the health and survival of other species. While overpopulation is not the sole cause of theses, it is certainly a root cause. We can do something about population and we can solve all theses problems more easily if we do.
About our resources: Many basic resources are strained by our current population.
*Food- One billion people, one out of every seven people alive, go to bed hungry. Every day, 25,000 people die of malnutrition and hunger related diseases. Almost 18,000 of them are children under 5 years old. Food production and distribution could catch up if our population stopped growing and dropped to a sustainable level.
*Water Shortages- About one billion people lack access to sufficient water for consumption, agriculture and sanitation. Aquifers are being depleted faster than they can be replenished. Melting glaciers threaten the water supply for billions. Wouldn't an ethic of population reduction now, make people's lives much better?
*Air Quality-In many regions of the country, childhood asthma rates have risen dramatically in the past 20 years. The problems are not limited to the industrialized countries with their automobiles and factories. Children in undeveloped countries, where people depend on burning wood and dung for their heat and cooking, are also at risk.
*Oil and Gas- are the underpinnings of what is, historically-speaking, the extremely cheap and fast transportation that today's huge population depends on. Imagine how we could feed and supply our huge cities (N.Y., L.A., London, Mexico City, Peking) if all the hauling was done in horse-drawn carts and sailing ships. Yet there is a finite amount of these fossil fuels in the Earth, and we have already extracted the easy-pickings in much of the world. The concept "Peak Oil" means that after some year, perhaps between 2005 and 2020, world oil production will max out and then start to decline.
"M. King Hubbert created and first used the models behind peak oil in 1956 to accurately predict that United States oil production would peak between 1965 and 1970.[1] His logistic model, now called Hubbert peak theory, and its variants have described with reasonable accuracy the peak and decline of production from oil wells, fields, regions, and countries.

Probably the most serious of environmental problems we face as humans is overpopulation. People are in the frame of mind that if we run out of room in one town, we can just simply spread out more. We can move people into areas that are less populated, and we can continue to reproduce and expand at an alarming rate. What most people don’t understand when they continue to build more stores and houses is that we are quickly running out of the natural resources necessary to sustain the population we have right now. We rely on and defer to our scientists or our politicians.

Overpopulation is still a problem!

If overpopulation is still a problem that makes me wonder just how long it has been a problem?.
