Overpopulation

Uriel Fernandez

Introduction

Is overpopulation affecting us? The population is increasing slowly and we need to take caution about it or it will affect the environment more than it is affected now.. people affect the environment by throwing trash on the ground, by the amount of water we use, etc.

The 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. Before the year 2050, India will surpass China as the largest country in the world, estimated to hit over 1.5 BILLION people. The population of India has almost TRIPLED from 1950 to 2000 It is expected to increase by 50% in the next 40 years. Around the year 1900 there were 1.6 Billion people on the earth. NOW there is a total population of the world at just under 6.8 BILLION. In just over 100 years our population has QUADRUPLED.
