How Much Will Overpopulation Affect You?

As this quiz will show you, overpopulation will affect EVERYONE in one way or another. Specifically however, overpopulation is going to affect those who live in undeveloped countries, but this quiz shows how it will also affect eve people in developed countries. The world population is expected to increase to 9.2 billion people in 2050, compared to 7.3 billion people right now. What exactly is causing this this? As technology has advanced the world has seen better health care options and thus a decline in mortality rate. Immigration to dense nations also accounts for overcrowding. Regardless, overpopulation is often overlooked and seen as something inevitable. While it is, in a way, there are small measure we can take to solve the harsh effects of overpopulation. One important solution is EDUCATION. As people become more educated about how overpopulation can affect us, we could possibly see more social policy about possibly having only one or two children. If people are more educated families will become more aware and hopefully keep this in mind when planning their families. Governments should implement better policies regarding environmental factors soon, because if these policies remain, overpopulation will only speed up the process of global warming. Taking this small quiz will show you just how much overpopulation will actually affect us.
