Population growth in the decades ahead will see mankind & the planet we inhibit facing great challenges ranging from water scarcity, environmental degradation, climate changes & more. We seem to be on a trajectory that would surely exceed whatever the carrying capacity of the Earth is. Providing for a 700% increase in the numbers of humans over the span of less than a few centuries certainly take its toll planet Earth.
We are on course towards 2℃ of warming by the end of this century. Just when we have the greatest numbers of people to feed, floods, storms, droughts and other extreme weather will cause significant disruption to food production. In order to avoid dangerous climate change, we must keep the majority of the Earth’s fossil fuel deposits in the ground. In other words, controlling carbon emission is something we need to look into. If humanity is to have a long-term future, we must address all these challenges at the same time as reducing our impacts on the planetary processes that ultimately provide not just the food we eat, but water we drink and air we breathe.
