It is undeniable that overpopulation is a serious concern which can cause many environmental problems. Admitting the situation, I feel the way which an individual choose to live has a greater role in the crisis which environment faces than growing population
To begin with i would like to state that increase in population directly leads to more natural resources being utilized For example, oil, natural gas and natural resources are being used up in an exponential way these days just to meet the increasing demands of a fast-growing population. Many developing countries are struggling to meet the needs of their exploding population, as evidenced by the exhaustion of these resources there.
Overpopulation also leads to environmental pollution, as it generates an increasing amount of waste products. This happens in both domestic and industrial sectors. Improper treatment of plastic to irrational dumping of extremely toxic chemical wastes into the nature which are seen at present would worsen with the ever-increasing population. For eg: some big industries directly dump chemical toxic waste directly to the rivers which can really have serious health hazard on people who consume those water without any proper treatment and the suffer from dangerous disease
However most important thing is attitude of person towards the consumption of natural resource and how he can act responsible <strong style=”font-family: inherit; font-size: inherit;”> by consuming fewer products and services and save the natural resources for the next generation which will reduce the intensity of this issue . <b style=”font-family: inherit; font-size: inherit;”>However, if individual becomes greedy and starts using resource without considering fellow citizens<b style=”font-family: inherit; font-size: inherit;”> and future problem then situation will deteriorate further and will make our future generation have very limited resource at there disposal .
In summary, it is a fact that overpopulation is a key factor which causes several environmental problems. <strong style=”font-family: inherit; font-size: inherit;”>However, I feel how a person decides to live has a greater role in this crisis.<b style=”font-family: inherit; font-size: inherit;”>
