Population:A Boon Or A Bane?

Saturday, August 9, 2008


A small question:What was the first discovery of man?

To me,the answer is a ‘human’ itself.This discovery of humans,and the further invention of humans,with a variety and high productivity made civilizations,and what not today!

But,if human count exceeds more than the resources which can sustain certain number,the scenario is of irreparable damage.Coming to the point,here I’ve uploaded a slideshow which is self-explanatory.What I forgot to put up were a few more slides based on Thomas Malthus’s(a population expert) research.

As per his findings,human count grows in a geometric progression(gets multiplied) like 1,2,4,8,considering conservative estimates and it has now reached a whopping 660 crores.What about agricultural productivity,without which humans can’t live?It grows in an arithmetic progression(gets added) like 1,2,3,4,5 etc. and with the advent of Global Warming,even the steady flow is somewhat unpredictable.

Look at this to see how human population is growing recently.

Alarming isn’t it?We only got one world.

Please have a look at this slideshow:

Tell me if it wasn’t eye-opening!There are sure many a points(macro and micro) worth adding into this all,but that’s what I have for now.The climate crisis which we are experiencing today was nowhere specualted 50 years ago,and something like ‘environmental expert’ would have sounded like a joke.Twenty years down the line,I bet population experts are going to come up.

By using any damn damn technique,maybe advertising on contraceptives,or NGOs working on charity,the people in the Third World need to be educated regarding contraception and a free distribution has to be organised.Let’s dream of a world,with no hunger or malnutrition!

Comment please,as it is the only fuel I have here.
