Global Issue

All around the world, more food is used and needed because of the large amount of people on Earth. More people require more food, even if they help provide it. Around the globe, more things are going extinct. Water, plants, and animals are needed for a human to live.

How Do We Control It?

Population is hard to control...nicely. It would be mean to...kill a baby for population, one of the slightly better ways would be to keep women from having babies, but still, population is something we'll just have to tolerate.
