Agree or disagree: Global overpopulation is a serious threat to the future of humankind
A growing concern in the world nowadays is whether or not global overpopulation is a serious threat to the future of humankind. I agree that it is a serious threat to the future of humankind. I’d like to explain my opinion with three reasons in this essay.
First of all, one of the causes of global overpopulation is an aging society in developed countries. Most of them are troubled with a low birthrate society. Labor demographic change will lead to the welfare crisis and the pension system may collapse due to a decline in the government tax revenue.
Secondly, statistically, overpopulated areas are limited to the third world. It’s difficult for them to make ends meet in everyday life. If their population goes up at this rate, they will suffer from food shortage. In particular, new born babies will not be able to get medical services at affordable costs.
Finally, global overpopulation will be a threat to the world safety. Notorious terrorist groups may be rampant with allover or everywhere in the world. Hunger will lead poor people to extreme groups and make them aggressive to other nations.
I’d like to emphasize again, an aging society, food shortage and safety are three reasons why I agree that global overpopulation is a serious threat to the future of humankind.
