The population growth of the world is getting out of hand.
About 47 people are born in one second, and 23 are dying. That leaves
us with a devastating "profit" of 24 births. Dare I even call it
profit? 24 births a second, gives us 144 births a minute, 8640 an
hour, and an overwhelming 207360 births a day. This
rising tide cannot be stopped, for we have only limited
resources to feed all these hungry new mouths.
The rising tide can be stopped and it will be stopped. The sensible way to
do this is to encourage birth control and/or abortion. Couple that with
government propaganda to keep the population down. It would have been
helpful if this had been done a half century ago and we'd have about 3
billion people in the world.
Encouraging birth control and abortion is one thing, but there are
of child birth that weren't accidental at all. Government propaganda
is one thing,
but history has proven that the people don't necessarily listen to the
sometimes even actively fight laws. And what sort of propaganda would
There are some advertisements for condoms and birth control pills on
that come up from time to time, but most people see them and laugh.
way to truly stem the flow would be to do something horrible such as
the sexual organs of kids at birth. This couldn't be done because it
is just too
inhumane, but something as terrible as that may be the only hope.
The resources will run out and as they do the population will decrease.
There won't be enough oil to do things like run tractors, fishing boats and
trucks. Enough food can't be produced or transported. People will starve and
there will be plenty of crime and killing. That's how the population will
Sadly, for the human race that is true. A number of mass murderers

The way we have mistreated the world we evolved in to is terrible, but
something just as terrible is needed to stop this.
The poverty level grows with every child because a
poor family only gets poorer when it has another kid to support. To
counteract this, inhuman child labor incidents are skyrocketing with
more children and poverty, and more pollution blankets the earth as
more factories spring up, creating an even more horrible climate for
the people to live in. There is only so much land that is available,
and most of it is barren and desolate, nowhere near anything that
could help people survive.
The amount of land isn't that important. With enough
petroleum/coalderivatives you can do anything. However, the oil has peaked
and you can't get more. Nuclear energy is a partial substitute but I doubt
that it can replace coal and oil. The amount of uranium is not unlimited.
Substitutes of resources can be found, but as people get more
those substitutes will run out also. When it seems that you have an
supply of something, people use it freely, but when it begins to run
begin to look into the future and care about what is coming. It is
too late to do anything about, but pessimism won't help solve
Harsher climates, such as the desert and
arctic regions, are almost all but out of the question. Only with
extremely expensive state-of-the-art equipment and modern technology
can these climates be inhabited. Sub-aquatic dwellings have been
experimented with, because there is so much sea floor space that is
unused by humans. Also, there is a constant supply of fish and seaweed
to live off of to make trips to the surface less necessary. Although
it is rather expensive, water can easily be purified, and air can be
stored. Though this sounds a lot like paradise, the prices of it are
enormous and basically render it impossible. This is also a moral
issue; are we going to destroy the oceans with our litter and trash as
we have our land? Why not let our own actions bounce back upon us, for
the more humans that die because of rising seas and temperatures, the
less the Earth gets polluted. A solution must be found for this, or we
will have an uncontrollable population on our hands in the not so
