The World at 10 Billion by Mind Map: The World at 10 Billion

1. Technology

2. Past: Technology in the past has assumed to be very vague and un-functional although, as years progressed, electricity was created and items such as; telephones, navigation systems and much more. It is believed that technology is a huge aspect contributing to population growth. If the term technology had not been created in the past, it would have never been in the present or what it is right now. Based on technology, it can rely on the chance if a person survives or not. In the past, technology was not that developed, due to this reason, the death rate was pretty high.

3. Present: Comparing the technology in the past, technology now has upgraded immensely. Hospitals are now able to save 75% of the people in hospitals through the developed technology. Just within a pinch, people are able to check their blood pressure without having to go through a whole procedure.

4. Future: Technology in the future has quite the demand. Day by day innovators are creating new software to enhance technologies. Things like self-driving cars, AI guide dogs and heart monitoring t-shirts are stored for the next few generations. By 2050 we can imagine having self-healing “living concrete.” With this technology, the population will do nothing but grow. If a patient had to rush to the hospital immediately, as the years will roll by there is a possibility that people won't even need to go to the hospitals, they will have all the crucial necessities right there in the comfort of their homes.

5. Sharing resources: Sharing resources is not a major problem in the world. Although, places that are surrounded by cities and modernity may have a fulfilled amount of technological items. There are some places that have a lack of money to afford to share these technologies around the community. Therefore the number of people dying still continues.

6. Connections of economical, environmental, political and social:

7. Economical: Economically technologies can cost quite the money. Dealing with this situation, the economy can go into the corruption zones since the cost of producing the parts is funded mainly by the government.

8. Environmental: The production of new technologies leads to multiple factors. Since each of the factors causes more pollution in the air, it harms our ecosystem and makes it hard for all the people who have respiratory problems which also leads to an increase in death rates.

9. Social: Technology helps us keep communication with people that we know even when they aren’t close to us. Having a social life is key when it comes to living in a happy environment. During hard times, friends and family are the only people that can de-stress us. If we were to connect this to population growth, the results of having no social life can lead to mental illnesses that make people end up in hospitals and unfortunately sometimes die because of suicidal thoughts. Again, resulting in an increase in the death rate.

10. Solutions: If we considered the internet a problem a possible solution can still be found. Even though the population is rising, innocent people shouldn’t die for not having the right equipment to be saved. So, a potential solution would be providing these rural locations with transportation systems to allow them to travel to a hospital nearby that has the right equipment for a patient to be saved.

11. Education

12. Past: Education in the past was not as developed as it is now. However, the techniques or ancient methods in the past have been carried on until today's 21st century. If a person knew what they were doing, many people would benefit from the amazing innovations they would create based on their knowledge. Although, if a person had not gotten an accurate education, the chances of that person possibly giving the wrong information to a person can result in life-threatening cases.

13. Present: The education system has made a remarkable difference from what it was before. Today, education is improving and if compared to the past, students are being taught high levels of education at very young ages. This impacts the population grew immensely in a certain country, especially if the education system offers multiple opportunities. Even though this may be a good factor, the number of international immigrants coming into that certain country to study is unimaginable. The number of people in the world can grow exponentially. This also can reduce the number of people employed since there are so many others that have the highest levels of education and are given jobs within a snap of a finger. It leaves a lot of other people unemployed due to the lack of education they have been given for multiple reasons.

14. Future: The future has a lot installed for the new generation as education is going to become a lot more advanced than it is now. If this topic is thought logically, the level of education by 2030 will be so advanced that the education taught now is what people living with money strains will be taught tomorrow. Just imagining the population increase immensely in countries that have this kind of education is difficult.

15. Sharing of resources: The sharing of knowledge or education has never really been a problem in the world. However, not everyone gets the rightfully deserved education they should be getting which can include textbooks, practice questions and projects to test their thinking. This has been a worldwide known problem around the world for a long time now. How does this affect the population? The more unacknowledged/uneducated people we have in this world, the chances of them getting a job will be pretty low, which leads to factors like poverty, unstable structure for future generations, lack of family support for kids and more financial problems; at the complete end of this, people give up and figure the best way of getting out of this emotional spiral is to suicide which then also increases the death rate of our world.

16. Connections of economical, environmental, political and social:

17. Economical: Education is known to improve the economy by 10% each year. This is mainly because the more education people develop the more the chance people are employed into good paying jobs. As we all know that taxes are cut off through people's salary or income, the more money a person produces, the more is cut off and is given to the government or economy. For example if a person gets a raise of $100 that person will be taxed approximately $25.53. This leads to economic growth attracting people into countries which then increases the population.

18. Environmental: As we all have heard that paper is manufactured from trees. The number of books and papers utilized has been going off the charts. Studies have shown that approximately 40% of paper goes to schools around the world, that’s about 900 million trees being cut down to provide raw materials for students. At this rate, the number of trees utilized will become a problem later on in life

19. Political: Education has a big standpoint when it comes to presenting a political point of view in front of a certain person. Without this skill, your ideas will never be taken into consideration. In order to reach this skill, it is important to have a background knowledge of the topic you will be presenting so at the end of the day your point is correct. If a person stood up for an election with no background knowledge, the views they have presented will apply to everyone which can either attract immigrants or cause people to emigrate from the country.

20. Social: Socially educating people is always a good thing. However, this can attract more people in a certain country causing it to create a crowded environment.

21. Problems: The main problem is the amount of trees being cut to provide resources around the world. If this were to continue the amount of trees/resources will cut short and the whole world will turn into chaos.

22. Solutions: If there were a potential solution to be found to this issue, the only way to solve it would be to increase homework online. The students who have electronic devices can stick to this strategy while the kids who don't can be the ones using paper. If this solution is taken into consideration, the amount of trees being cut will reduce to 10%.

23. Medication/Health

24. Past: Medicational aid was very underdeveloped in the past, however, the ancient methods were always the top number of healing at the time multiple years ago. The population would increase due to the amount of ancient remedies that were available although the information was not all accurate which also led to an increase in death rate.

25. Present: The medicational aids today have improved a lot since the past. In the past people would have remedies to cut a person open and let all their blood flow to make them better, thankfully those methods are not believed by people today and there are proper and efficient procedures to take medicines.

26. Sharing of resources: There is quite the lack of medicines in the world due to unaffordable prices and many other reasons. However, people that can afford these medicines, sometimes people can be tricked which causes more illnesses and the increase of death rate.

27. Economical: The production of medicines can cost the government or the economy up to 9 billion dollars. This can put the community into resource problems as there will be a shortage of money for other necessities.

28. Environmental: When pharmaceutical wastes are put down the drain they can make subtle effects in the organisms. Some medicines are carelessly disposed on the streets which can possibly be very harmful if a child or animal tries to consume it. Again, increasing the death rate.

29. Problems: Lack of medicines around the globe to cure everyone.

30. Government

31. Past: As women in the past have always stuck to things related to their home and children they had way too much time to produce and look after their kids which allowed families to grow exponentially.

32. Present: Unlike the past women are legally allowed to have a job outside of their house thats something of their interest. Due to the previous reason, women don’t have the time to produce or nurture an average of 6 kids at once which happily makes the population growth reduce compared to the years before.

33. Political: In countries like China and India it is law that if you are to have more than 1-2 kids there is a separate fee for increasing the amount of children produced. This also helps reduce the amount of people increasing in the world

34. Agriculture

35. Present: Food we feed into our bodies today can affect our lives tomorrow. Many people die due to the over consumption of greasy fast food and an unhealthy diet. As obvious this also leads to an increase in death rate.

36. Economical: Agriculture is one of the main key aspects of living life as it includes keeping your body healthy based on what you put in it.

37. Environmental: Things like deforestation can cause the reduction of crops which means not enough food to go around the communities.

38. Environment

39. Air pollution starts off with the production of materials then the travelling of those materials and finally the utilization of those materials is way more harmful than our brains could ever think. This can cause an unstable environment making everyone's lives and health miserable.

40. Deforestation has caused floods, climate change, desertification, soil erosion, fewer crops, flooding, increased greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

41. Due to the lack of resources such as trees and agriculture there are many animals in the world that won’t have enough necessities to survive in the wild which can cause the extinction of species.
