Human overpopulation is an animal entitlements issue as well as a natural issue and a human rights issue. Human exercises, including mining, transportation, contamination, agriculture, advancement, and logging, remove habitat from wild animals just as kill animals directly. These exercises additionally add to climate change, which compromises even the most remote wild habitats on this planet and our very own existence.
Current estimates and projections
As indicated by the U.S. Census, there were six billion people in the world in 1999. On October 31, 2011, we hit seven billion. In spite of the fact that growth is easing back, our population keeps on increasing and will arrive at nine billion by 2048.
Over 80% of the world's old growth forests have been pulverized, wetlands are being depleted for real estate advancement, and requests for biofuels remove truly necessary arable land from yield production.
Life on earth is as of now encountering its 6th main extinction, and we are losing a measured 30,000 species for each year. The most popular significant annihilation was the fifth one, which happened around 65 million years ago and cleared out the dinosaurs. The significant extinction that we are currently confronting is the first that is caused not by an asteroid collision or other natural causes, but by a single species—humans.
Effects of conservation
Consuming less might be a route for us to live inside the carrying capacity of the planet, yet as Paul Ehrlich and Anne Ehrlich clarify, "Overpopulation is defined by the animals that occupy the turf, behaving as they naturally behave, not by a hypothetical group that might be substituted for them." We ought not to use the expectation or the arrangement to lessen our utilization as a contention that humans are not overpopulated.
While lessening our consumption is significant, around the world, per capita energy consumption expanded from 1990 to 2005, so the pattern doesn't look great.
