Overpopulation is the condition where the population rate exceeds the Earth's carrying capacity and the limited amount of water and food are being depleted at a rapid rate. The causes of overpopulation is reduced mortality rates, lack in family planning, and better medical facilities are just some of the major factors of overpopulation. Overpopulation causes the depletion of important resources, wars where resources to fight wars could be utilized for development, and increased pollution in the environment. Over population can also lead to the collapse of human society due to the depletion of natural resources that are key to human survival and the inability to recreate those resources. Solutions to over population can be better education, where educating people about having 5 children can make them face a hard life and that having 1 or 2 children is the ideal number of how many children they should have, tax benefits where there is a waive for a portion of tax for the families with 1 or 2 children, and raising awareness of the dangers of overpopulation can all help curb population growth
In my opinion over population is a big threat to human society because it is one of the biggest reasons that could result in the collapse of human society. I also think that they should make 1-3 children the ideal numbers for the amount of children you should have because I am a third child and if they implemented that, then i would not exist to write this reflection right now. In conclusion I think that there should be immediate action to this threat to society.
