Over Population by Mind Map: Over Population

1. Effects on Environment

1.1. Can the earth support 10-11 billion people?

1.1.1. !Keep these problems in mind! Space on earth Does the earth have enough space? pollution Will over population cause polution? How will pollution affect our planets ability to sustain a population of 10-11 billion people? Resources depletion Will their be enough resources to support 10-11 billion people?

1.1.2. Current technology How can today's technology solve the issue of space, pollution, and Resource depletion? enough space? Can we reduce enough pollution? Do we have enough resources?

1.1.3. Future technology How can tomorrow's technology solve the issues of space, pollution, and resource depletion? Do we have enough resources?

2. Future Predictions

2.1. Population will stop at 10-11 billion by the 21st centery

2.1.1. Most Asian countries such as Bangladesh *had* extreme population growth and most of theese countries on average currently have a faster population growth then most

2.1.2. This is expected to slow down even further because people and more specificaly in Bangladesh are becoming more educated (about children) and families are encouraged to have a maximum of 2 kids Organization are hiring women such as Taslima to educate, give advice, moral support, and most importantly contraceptives Results of programs alike for Bangladesh

2.2. Average number of babies born per women in the world

2.2.1. This Data shows that even though life expectancy is growing that the population should stabilize because families are becoming smaller with less children Peak Child is speculated to be 2 billion (meaning that no more or less than approximately 2 billion children will be the in the world at all times) Assuming peak child is true (world population)

2.2.2. 1963 Babies born per women: 5.0 average Life expectancy: Around 50 years average.

2.2.3. 2012 Babies born per women 2.5 average life expectancy: Around 70 years average.
