Seven billion and counting : the crisis in global population growth

Image of item
Demographers anticipate that the human population will increase to 10 billion people sometime before the year 2050. Can we feed, clothe, house, and find jobs for this many people? At the same time, can we protect remaining habitats to ensure global diversity of life, a key to human survival? The problems are already significant. Human developments are gobbling up key natural resources, destroying ecosystems, and reducing the amount of agricultural lands that could help feed the world. Global climate change has led to disasters that affect food and water supplies. Humans are migrating away from disaster areas, wars, and stagnating economies, putting pressure on destination countries without resources to support millions of newcomers. Poverty and lack of education about birth control intensify the obstacles--and the misery. Solutions are far from easy, but efforts are under way. Nations and organizations around the world are working to address the population crisis and the related issues that challenge sustainable life on Earth. Can we do it in time to make a difference? --From publisher description.
