A glimpse of just how busting to the seams most countries are through their trains, metro and packed streets. One of the often forgotten luxuries of living in the First World is the relative absence of crowds. A third of the world’s population is Chinese or Indian and in most poor countries it’s almost impossible to ever be alone. We tracked down some videos to give you a graphic feel of what it means to live with overpopulation as your daily reality.
The population of the entire world could fit shoulder-to-shoulder in a space about the size of Jacksonville, Florida. Ninety-seven percent of the earth’s land surface is empty. If you allotted to each person 1,250 square feet (which is quite a bit), all the people in the world would fit into the state of Texas.

Think about it! For whom? What is a pro for some might be a con for others. In what context? Short term or long term?
Gary Becker has posted a concise optimistic statement on his blog that all “Oil Drummers” should read. “Neo-Malthusians who fear larger populations typically stress the effects on pollution and on the demand for non-renewable resources, like oil and natural gas. Clearly, the demand for fossil fuels and other non-renewable resources grows with population as well as with economic development. However, during the past 150 years, the real price of fossil fuels like coal and oil fell rather than increased as world population exploded, and additional economies prospered. More efficient use of fossil fuels and discoveries of new reserves of these fuels, and innovations that produce alternate sources of energy, like nuclear power, explain why prices of fossil fuels did not rise along with population and industrialization.

The purpose of this post is to reflect my knowledge of the impact of population growth to the environment, the economy and generally the every-day life. Moreover, this topic should trigger the reader to think more thoroughly by reconsidering his actions of consumption, affluence and his usage of technology. The post will present two extreme views which offer different solutions regarding the population growth and sustainability resources. The current state of human growth population is alarmingly increasing. The ratio of the rapid population growth and the Earth’s caring capacity is not proportionally balanced. This means that the Earth will not have enough space to ‘host’ the increasing number of people.

8 October 2007 Vol. 9 / No. 37 On September 27-28, the University of La Sabana, a Catholic University located in Bogota, Colombia, convened a conference on "Population, Life, and Development." Steven Mosher told the assembly, which included senior government officials, that Colombia was not overpopulated. Like other Baby Boomers, I lived through the unprecedented doubling of the global population in the second half of the 20th century. Never before in human history had our numbers increased so far, so fast: from 3 billion in 1960 to 6 billion in 2000.

Clicking upward at a rate of one person every 11 seconds, the U.S. population will officially surpass 300 million in the next week or so. The milestone is a reminder that the United States remains a remarkable demographic specimen, 230 years old (since the Declaration of Independence) and still in a growth spurt. Behind only China and India, it is the planet's third most populous nation.
