  • It's time for some biological warfare....

    I think that's why these diseases were created in the first place, to wipe out mass amounts of people. Look at China. They need a dominating totalitarian government to handle the amounts of people there. They need to scare their citizens in order for them to behave. And that's where we are headed. I've read that the pharmaceutical industry is creating patients, not treating them. I believe that.

  • Of course it is!

    How could their be any dispute of whether the world is overpopulated when we're barely scraping by on earth's natural resources? I don't believe overpopulation is something that can be stopped since we're already here now, but there's no doubt. With so many people in the world, we're slowly eating away at planet earth, and we can see it everyday. Whether it's global warming or even something economical like the lack of jobs, there's no doubt this planet has way too many people in it.

  • The world can not cope.

    I have seen many arguments on this forum claiming there is plenty of space which yes is correct. However we are using resources up at a terrifying rate, and I don't just mean fossil fuels. Some species of fish are being driven to the verge of extinction, Copper and many other minerals which are used to create all the technology which we have become so dependent on are now becoming unsustainable at the rate we are mining them. My opinion is that we have royally screwed this planet up.

  • Obviously we are

    I'm 100% sure that the world is overpopulated and on top of that ppl just seem to love making a ton of babies instead of adopting orphaned children. If u want a child adopt one u will not only save the child's life you'll also save the Earth. I live in a city where there's almost no room to breathe due to the ridiculously high population..... If u r really interested in the topic and how overpopulation I suggest u read a short story called THE BILLENIUM.

  • Not at this moment, but soon

    Currently we use up most of the resources how we please, waste, pollute and our plan is to feed and to breed. We will run out of materials first,then some foods than the rest of food and water, whIle at the same time polluting air. Solution: 1 child rule globaly, using renewable energy sources, more farms and breeding animals as well as growing plants more.

  • Idiocracy is real.

    We are saving people that should be consumed by Darwinism. We have become to sensitive. I am disgusted by plastic. It never breaks down and we make it every day. We are destroying our Eden with pure laziness. We are the most destructive creature on this earth. We rule each other beyond happiness. There is a rule for everything you do in life. A code of conduct for every action. Is anywhere left where man is truly free? We are overpopulated.

  • Yes it is

    The world is overpopulated thanks the people not taking respondibilty as an individual, though im in the country, traffic is getting to the point where its bumper to bumber, traffic increased, more traffic jams occuring, it would be nice with 2-3 billion instead of 7 billion, infortunetly our population will continue to get worse, just saying

  • Yes we are

    Imagine every year how many graduates from different umiversities, college school from different countries needs to get a job just to answer what they want and needs and how many undergraduates too who wants to have a job just to full fill their needs too plus every month how many babies from different countries where born, There's so many reasons out there that can be the part of the problem which is considered as our main problem plus the enviromental issue that our current situation we facing right now is also because of over population. Sorry if my english is not too good i just want to share my opinion about this issue i'm believe that overpopulation is the root of all of this not the issue of West Philippine Sea, America's political crisis, Catholic scandal etc. The only solution we have first is to control our selves first. Again sorry for the wrong english, i hope you understand what i want to say about this, thank you!

  • We need space in our world!!!!

    You walk outside there are hundreds of thousands of people. The earth is still barley hanging on because of us we need a better life not no crowded life like who wants to stand or sit shoulder to shoulder with people in the future. I mean if they get sick you get sick then everybody gets sick.

  • Its clear to see that we are

    Just look at the stuggles with world resources
    Oil running out
    Were forever needed more and more food to be produced
    More people means more waste products
    More and more water is consumed
    More and more trees and green land belt is being taken over by new builds which puts a strain on wildlife
    The pressure to create more jobs
    medical supplies being stretched out more and more

  • Not even close.

    Some countries and locales may be overpopulated, but the world is nowhere near being overpopulated. There is just an enormous amount of uninhabited space on the earth that people can populate and quite probably will in the future. The argument in support of "Yes" was absolutely ridiculous and discusses radical, and incredibly unrelated conspiracy theories. One of the related notes was in regards to China. However, the totalitarian communist government of China did not evolve from the fact that have a large population. Rather, it arose from their border with Russia (the first Communist nation in the world, and for many years one of the most powerful nations) and Mao (who took the Communist fight into China with astounding support from the USSR after World War II). But I digress. Regardless, the facts simply do not support an overpopulated Earth. I read once that if you were to take the entire world population (now at around 7 billion) and put them all inside the state of Texas (268,820 sq. miles according to Google), the population density (about 26,040 people per square mile) that is still nearly three times less than the population density of Manhattan (about 69,771 people per square mile according to Wikipedia).

  • I have no statistics but it's pretty common sense...

    Maybe if you're living in a heavily populated city, it's going to appear as if the world is overpopulated, because most people aren't looking at the bigger picture but they are just looking at their own view point and what they see around them. So that may be why people are saying yes to this, but it should be pretty common sense that it isn't.

    There's so much empty land in this world. The land may be owned by the Government or someone, but it's still land that no one is living in. If you ever take a drive through the country areas in Canada, and I'm sure even USA or almost anywhere for that matter, you'll see lots and lots of land either covered by trees or empty fields or anything.

    I always look at all these empty spaces and just think about how many homes and people they can build in these places, and how many people can fit.

    Some areas in the world are unfortunate to not have the same resources as other countries, sure, while some countries consume a lot more of the resources, which is why it may seem like there's less resources or an overpopulation crisis. I think it's just all this consumption that could be an issue.

    I know of some people who eat enough food in one day that can feed 10 people in that day, or families that throw big feasts with lots of food for 10-20 people, but it's enough food to feed 100 people. Then some of that extra food gets thrown out as well or fed to their pets or kept as leftovers, which isn't so bad either.

    Even if you feel the world is overpopulated, there's always disasters throughout the world which kills a lot of people, and more people seem to be into the same sex, which means they can't produce between the two of them, unless they use some other methods, and with the way things cost and technology to distract people in their daily lives, most families are having less children as well, so they may help bring down the population in the future, especially once all the baby boomers die out, which was the bigger chunk of the population.

    So no, there's no overpopulation, and to those who are worried about there being overpopulation or us being on the brink of it, most of the elderly are going to die out in the next 20-30 years, which may decrease the population quite a bit.

  • Location, location, location

    As stated above, there is plenty of room for people on earth. As for resources, we continually improve yield and conservation techniques; if Africa were to have a modern agricultural system, it alone could feed the world.
    Cities are overcrowded because people choose to live in them - governments can create new cities with restrictions on size and encourage people to move to them.
    Any effects of population on climate change need to be addressed by the direct cause of the effect (production methods, etc.), not the indirect one (population).
    Remember, our population growth is due to people living longer. It's not due to people having more babies. So we should figure out how to make that life better, not by getting rid of people or preventing them from being born in the first place.

  • We are not overpopulated, we are overly wasteful

    If you would spread the amount of people over the earth systematically then its clear to see we do not take that much space as all and would live actually pretty far away to the next person close to you. We are just overly wasteful. We produce too much and we all buy it, we believe in commercialism and do not believe in a world without it. We are stuck in habits, principles and systems and we aren't doing anything about it because we feel overpowered by those systems. We are weak, fat, lazy and damn we are ignorant. Do we need our job to stay alive? Do we then need to stuff our roads with traffic jams to go to work? Don't we have time to make our own food? We are fighting against time to sustain our systems, those who waste not only us but also our planet. Its a big fat lazy pity

  • Its not a concern

  • No we are not

    Did you know if the whole world was as densely as manhattan we could al fit in new zealand .So that says somthing we are not geting over populated soon ok everyperson in the whole world we are not getting overpopulated any time some thank you for reading the end

  • Sex Food Clothing and Housing.

    There is enough food for everyone, enough clothes, enough houses. But sex for reproductive reasons has become rare. Most developed countries( Germany, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, etc.) have a demographic factor below 2. With families having less than 2 children humanity one day will simply extinguish. The whole homeless starving story is just a story of greed and inequality. A lack of redistribution. 1000 men with more than a billion dollars and billion men with less than a thousand dollars. So for those billion men it might seem like there are too many of them. And that is true. Poor people have too many and rich people too few children. But by no means are there more humans than agricultural area to sustain them. How about feeding 1200 starving kids for a day instead of buying an iphone?

  • It only appears that way in the major cities.

    The population is not evenly spread out, but it is condensed into cities with bits of country inhabited by less people. If population density becomes even, the issue of overpopulation will go away. Also, it is our habits that cause issues like world hunger, starvation to happen. There is really not a limit to the number of people who can exist on Earth, just the number of "rich" people (Source: SciShow.)

    If everyone lived in smaller houses, ate less meat, etc., there wouldn't be as many poor/hungry people.

    Did you know that if all people had exactly two feet of personal space, we could all fit in the Isle of Skye, a tiny island in Great Britain? If all people had their fair share of all the liveable Earth, they would have about 89 tennis courts worth of property each. (Guinness World Records 2012)

    Besides, what is wrong with it? Any person who had Biology could tell you that the primary goal of an organism is to have as many offspring as possible and make sure they are the best. Support "over"-population, support the growth of the human race!
