Overpopulation is undoubtedly one of the world’s most serious environmental problem. I agree with this statement as the way people misuse and overexploit resources has led this to become as world’s most serious environmental problem.
Overpopulation is seen as a serious issue as it has many negative impacts throughout the human lifespan. Population growth has undeniably had negative impacts on the environment as in depletion of the availability of natural resources as one of the concerns, it leads to shortage space, depletion in mental health and a rapid increase in crime. For instance, as observed in overpopulated underdeveloped countries, there are more demand and fewer opportunities which ultimately leads to many serious societal conflicts leading to an increase in crime and more chances of injustice to lower waged people.
Perhaps overpopulation would not be an issue if society changes its lifestyle. Government can play a significant role by passing laws to prevent the increasing population and this issue can be uprooted simply if people can make certain changes to their daily lifestyle.
