We've all heard the phrase "overpopulation is a global issue." But is it really? According to some estimates, overpopulation would actually be a problem if it weren't for immigration. In fact, world human population could actually lead to the extinction of many species.
Everything on Earth is connected. As our world continues to grow in population, it's important to consider how these changes will affect the environment. In this article, you'll learn about the global issues of human population growth on the ecosystem, and what we can do to help preserve and protect our natural resources.
Population growth has been blamed for environmental degradation, food shortages, and even wars. In developed countries like the United States, people are having more children than they can support. This is due in part to increased access to birth control and abortion.
However, in developing countries where contraception and abortion are not available or are not widely used, population growth is leading to an increase in unplanned pregnancies and a rise in child mortality rates.
One solution to the overpopulation problem maybe immigration. If immigrants were only allowed into countries with low populations, there would be less strain on resources and the environment. Immigration is also a way to help relieve poverty in developing countries by providing workers who can contribute to the economy.
