Population Growth Jack castiglione

Part 1:

According to the United Nations in 2050 the world population will be at 9.7 million people. According to Paul R. Elrichan ideal population would entail; Decent wealth and resources for everyone, basic human rights for everyone, Preservation of Cultural diversity, allowance of intellectual, artistic technological creativity, preservation of biodiversity.

Wealth and Resources for Everyone:

“Shouldn't we also ask ourselves what the consequences are of scrambling to provide the "most" of everything to our children in a world of fast dwindling resources? ”- John Taylor Gatto

About 1/3 of foods are wasted worldwide as 1.6 million tons of food is wasted every year. Food prices have doubled in the last decade because of worldwide impacts.


Important food staples for our everyday lives are expected to increase in price by 120 to 180 percent. Last year corn alone rose seventy four percent.


Basic Human Rights for Everyone:

"Human rights is the soul of our foreign policy, because human rights is the very soul of our sense of nationhood."- Jimmy Carter.

More that 232 million people migrated who were international migrants elected five destinations to start new lives. Migrants are exposed to abuse and many hate crimes.


According to UNICEF, India has the largest amount of child labors under the age of fourteen. More than twenty eight million are engaged in child labor.

Preservation of Biodiversity

Over exploitation of natural resources, pollution cause invasive species to take over natural biodiversity. Continuation of climate change caused by large populations of humans will destroy biodiversity even more.

"In taking a biodiversity approach to human population growth, our task is to stabilize and then reduce population because it drives the extinction of species, destruction of ecosystems, and production of greenhouse gases."-Anonymous

The World Wildlife Foundation or WWF stated that since 1970 wildlife population has dropped fifty two percent. The increasing population has caused more demands on biodiversity.


Allowance of Intellectual Creativity

2/3 of African's lack access to electricity. Developing countries need more affordable electricity plans and options. Many new human activities have caused a spike in carbon dioxide levels.

As developing countries’ contribution to global emissions grows, population size and growth rates will become significant factors in magnifying the impacts of global warming.”-Sierra Club

With the population growing there has been the highest amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere at any point 800,000 years ago.

Part 2

Natural Resources:

Population growth has diminished the two billion hectares of fertile land.

Sixty four out of one hundred and five third world counties have the problem of population growing higher than food rates

With our population still increasing, the lessamount of water we will have each time it rises


In 2030, more than five billion people (67%) will not have connections to sewar systems.

In 2050 an additional three billion people will be living in water stressed countries.

California will need to be demanding more than three times the amount of groundwater than it does currently.

Overcrowded Earth:

In 2030, 8.5 billion people, 9.7 billion people in 2050, 11.2 billion people in 2100.

Each year the population grows 1.8 percent, in people this rounds up to 83 million people

Child Fertility will drop from 2.5 child per women to 2.0 children in 2095-2100.

Part 3: Population Growth affect on India

India is projected to be the country with the highest Population growth between 2010-2050; a projected 467 million people


Social Effects:

Unemployment: With the huge increase of people, the amount of illiterate people also increases causing there to be mass unemployment across India.

Manpower utilization: With the number of illiterate people growing, there are less jobs causing a bad economics and slow production.


Decrease in Land

Pressure on infrastructure: With the increase of people in India, it's infrastructure will not be able to hold all of them. Over the next fifty years, there will be less transportation and housing.

Resource of utilisation: When the population is doubled, the land, resources and other important natural resources will be gone. India will not be able to produce enough to keep these people healthy.


Income and Production:

Decreased Production and Increased Costs: The domino effect continues as there will be slow production because of the unemployment problem. When there is slow production the rise of food and other resources grow. In India the the unemployment rate will become a big factor.

Failing Income Distribution: India faces large economic problems already. The domino effect of staggering unemployment rates continue to threaten the country. With India's huge increase in population, their problems socially and economically will continue to be very bad for the country.
