The Planets population explosion is placing huge stresses on the environment and the inhabitants of over crowded cities.
It is estimated that the human population will increase by 1 billion people in the next decade. This is like adding the whole population of China to the world’s population.
The earths population will increase by 1,000,000,000 in the next decade! As populations continue to increase globally, people are being forced to live like ants! Stress and poverty is a bi-product of these living conditions.
According to research, within a decade we will not be able to produce enough food or “products” to keep up with the demands of an ever increasing population.

With medical advances and better diet, people are living longer lives. Pretty soon we will have a massive population of elderly that will need to be cared for. Human population growth is probably the biggest environmental disaster that we face as a species!
Some Governments across the planet are buying up huge areas of land in places like Africa so as they can start producing crops to feed their citizens as they have all ready over farmed their own countries.
Farm-able land is being destroyed by over farming and pollution from fertilisers and pesticides.
Water is also becoming scarce as more and more rivers are being dammed and polluted by industry.
