Is Over Population a Big Problem?

To answer this question with a simple “yes” or “no” answer would not do us any good. We should look at some basic numbers to come to the right conclusion. Are we using to many resources and are they on there way to depletion?


Shortages of materials, fossil fuels, lumber, topsoil, freshwater, and clean air can be the biggest problems we face in the next 20 to 50 years. The debate is not the depletion of resources, but the waste and toxic use of resources that will be our down fall. For resources that are renewable, trees, water, and air — we can not use more then what we have. Simply put, we can not use these resource at a faster rate then the rate we replenish them.
