Population control
The population of the world is increasing at a rapid rate. It is feared that it
is growing so fast that in the foreseeable future, earth will not be able to
sustain its population.
As a result there is considerable pressure for population control. Others,
on the other hand, believe that solutions other than population control
need to be considered.
It has been estimated that the world’s population will increase to 9 billion
by 2020. To feed this population, the available arable land must produce
a high yield or the amount of arable land must be increased. Both of
these scenarios leave serious consequences. If yield is increased
through the use of chemical fertiliser, health risks are possible. An
increase in arable land comes at the cost of environments for animals.
Therefore population control appears to be an obvious solution.
The opposing view is that other solutions must be implemented. For
example increasing the health, wealth and quality of life, particularly
within developing nations, would decrease the pressure on parents for
larger families.
