“Population Overload” is about how each time our population in the
United States doubles. Whether because of the World War II, unchecked
immigration, or just over-crowded cities, population increases and danger
increases as well. It also says how we as humans and citizens of this
country should do something about the population overload in the Unites
Losing millions of acres of farmland, over use of water supply, air
quality not improving, schools over crowding as well as over crowding
health care systems, are troubles that the United States face due to the
increase of population. This over crowding problem is not just a hassle,
but we are at risk of one day reaching a point no one can do anything about
“Democrats and Republicans, liberals and conservatives, are avoiding
debate on these issues because they are the most difficult ones for
politicians to conform.”
Imagine, if the government doesn’t act to improve our nation, who will?
This article applies to the issue of Human Population Explosion due
to that each year, the population increases in the United States as well as
other countries, by more that thousands. It explains how we are over using
the resources we have which sooner or later we will no longer have.
Probably the biggest problem is healthcare. Budgets go down due to
overpopulation and many times, emergency rooms have to close down due to
their low budget. What will happen if this keeps on?
This issue impacts us locally due to the fact that we live in the
United States and we should take care of the little resources we have. And
it’s true, we’ve seen in the news how we have a shortage of water, the air
is polluted and how we are running out of medications, and all this is due
to the population increase. More people – more resources needed.
I definitely think this is an enormous problem not just because one
day we won’t in this world, but we are not thinking of the consequences.
“As individuals and as a nation, we’re defined by the choices we make.
And too often, by the tough decisions we avoid. Most of us have
avoided even thinking about how our rapidly growing population is
affecting our quality of life and shaping our society.”
The only way to avoid this problem is to take care of each other and be
smarter of how to use what Earth gives us. We also need to teach our
children, of how we can prevent the problems of over population.
“We must prepare to make very tough choices on all these issues that
we’ve too long ignored.”
