Human Population Issue

Current population growth has led to famine in areas where food production cannot keep pace with population growth; political unrest areas with great disparities in availability of resources (jobs: goods, food); environmental degradation by poor agricultural practices (erosion, desertification); water pollution by human and industrial waste; air pollution caused by the human need to use energy for personal use and for industrial applications; extinctions caused by people converting natural ecosystems to managed agricultural ecosystems; and. destructive effects of exploitation of natural resources (strip, mining, oil spills, groundwater mining). In
addition to population size, the kind of demands a population places on its resources is also important. Highly industrialized populations require much more energy and material resources to sustain their way of life than do the populations of the less-developed world.
