The world today is home to over six billion inhabitants. China and India are home to over two billion people and these countries are already experiencing the first signs of over population. If the population continues to grow as it is, the world can expect some serious problems within the next thirty years. Every day a quarter of a million people are added to the world, which equates to eighty seven million people per year. With such an increase in population, one can only expect the depletion of earth’s natural resources and the widespread suffering for its inhabitants.

The environment is very fragile and it must be certain that space is made for growing cities and its equilibrium is not disturbed. It is an immense impasse with no solution in sight. When food shortages do occur, it will affect both people and animals. From 1970 to present day, the earth's human population has almost doubled in size. will take a toll on the earth's environment and cause heavy air pollution. Thirty-five countries now face serious food shortages, including two-dozen in Africa, according to a report released by the United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization.

Since nearly one third of the world's land area is used for food production, lessening the space available to produce crops would lead to food shortages worldwide. While some nations are taking steps to prevent such a catastrophe from occurring, it has not been addressed by all nations. Having more homes means more power needs to be supplied to a larger area. Factories and electric plants will burn all of the fossil fuels that the earth has left. Many countries are on the verge of over population, expanding every which way to make room.
