    OVER POPULATION Environmental catastrophes such as climate change, flooding, ozone depletion, water pollution, famines, disease, energy crises etc, are all born from the same human induced phenomenon: over population. Stated simply, the more inhabitants of the earth, the greater the need for more of everything.

    809 words
    In his article "The Columbian Voyages, the Columbian Exchange, and Their Historians", Alfred W.

I predict that if we do not do something about this problem soon, the Earth is going to reach its maximum capacity and we will slowly run out of resources, which could cause wide-spread famine and eventually lead to the population dropping down t...
