The best way to curb climate change: have one less child
In a world with 7.7 billion people, water is scarce, food is no longer abundant (despite over production), and affordable shelter is becoming rapidly more difficult to find, is our population truly sustainable?
Every year the world’s population grows by another 83 million people. With an upward trend in population size leveling out at an annual 1.4% increase, it is no question that the size of our population is slowly, but surely becoming a clear issue.
In 2017, the Guardian brought the topic of overpopulation to light.
Now more than ever, environmentalists are posing if more feet equals more heat and if having one less child is actually the best way to help correct climate change.
