Question and answer
what are the effects of increasing human population has on resources?
Many feel (as has been the case throughout history) that the major international wars to be fought in the future will continue to be over natural resources. [ Power conflicts and self-interest will perhaps mean that there will be gross violation of basic rights and death or misery for millions of innocent people. Studies point to ecological limits to sustain people, but these limits can be different, based on the way we consume resources etc so it is hard to say for sure what over population means let alone if we are at some threshold, below, or above it. The information understood so far
provides valuable insights and is very important to consider, nonetheless. Yet, the figure of 6 billion and literature about over-population naturally looks to the poor regions where there are high populations and environmental degradation as the problem.At the same time that human populations have been increasing, there has also been a great intensification of per-capita environmental impacts. This has occurred through the direct and indirect consequences of increased resource use to sustain individual human beings and their social and technological infrastructure: meat production, fuel-burning, mining, air and water pollution, destruction of wild habitat, and so forth.
