In commemoration of World Population Day, we should be reminded of this grave issue which surrounds us but which we are mostly unaware of. for it is an existential crisis, in which the very existence of all of us creates serious problems. The world population continues to grow even as the planet’s resources cannot support so many people. The solutions to this problem either consists of stopping population growth and limiting the number of people or finding ways to make all of us live in a sustainable manner and use Earth’s resources in a way to provide for so many people. It is the latter which will probably prove to be the feasible option.
