Climate change and agriculture Climate change and agriculture are interrelated processes, both of which take place on a worldwide scale. Global warming is projected to have significant impacts on conditions affecting agriculture, including temperatureprecipitation and glacial run-off.
If we are to halt the destruction of our environment, we must accept limits to that growth. In countries like China, the government has put policies in place that regulate the number of children allowed to a coupleand some leaders and environmentalists are suggesting that the United Nations implement a China-like one-child policy globally to help control and reduce overpopulation gradually.
Others, such as Gerard K. O'NeillMarshall T. Lewishave suggested building space habitats in asteroid belts or the Venusian atmosphere as viable solutions to successfully sustaining current population growth rates.
Stabilizing human overpopulation, outside of relying on an undesirable United Nations global takeover of the bedroom or waiting to send future populations to space, is possible through widespread availability of family planning, spreading awareness on the causes and effects of overpopulation, providing easier access to birth control devices and implementing social norms, such as social marketing strategiesto educate the public, particularly in developing countries, about overpopulation and provide them with the tools they need to make the decisions they want.

The Worldwatch Institute has released State of the World Moving Toward Sustainable Prosperity and in the chapter " Nine Population Strategies to Stop Short of 9 Billion ," Worldwatch Institute President Robert Engelman argues that"If most or all of these strategies were put into effect, global population likely would peak and subsequently begin a gradual decline beforethereby ensuring sustainable development of natural resources and global stability into the future.
By implementing policies that defend human rights, promote education, and reflect the true economic and environmental costs of childbearing, the world can halt population short of the 9 billion that so many analysts expect.Consumers I question the motives of the producers of this site and film.
Of course overpopulation is a problem but it’s an “inconvenient truth” ignored by practically everyone because we want/need more CONSUMERS to support our economies, buy buy buy. Deforestation is clearing the Earth's forests on a large scale worldwide and resulting in many land damages.
One of the causes of deforestation is to clear land for pasture or crops.
Overpopulation: This is a never-ending human tragedy which is responsible for causing all types of environmental issues.
