More population translates to more health challenges, more women dying at childbirth and more volume of wastes, which will translate to reduced damping sites and acute problems such as pollution (Friis 321). In less developed countries, burgeoning populations tends to an introduction of large amounts of liquid wastes into waterways and oceans without proper processing (Friis 322). These wastes endanger the present restricted drinking water supplies and viability of aquatic environments. Friis (332) suggests some solution to increasing wastes to include reduction of solid wastes such as source reduction, recycling, and composting.
It is impossible to manage the increasing wastes since the present landfills are becoming depleted (BBC Documentary min 2). Furthermore, organic wastes are more harmful to the environment as it transmits hazardous gases such as methane into the atmosphere. Since it is becoming economically impossible to meet the demands of solid waste processing for the burgeoning population, Melissa in (Gates min 5) suggests the use of family planning method as an effective strategy.
The burgeoning population is a worrying trend in relation to human health and increasing wastes. It is becoming economically expensive to transport the wastes, besides the negative effects to the environment (BBC Documentary min 10). Transportation of these wastes to landfills translates to approximately 300 million dollars annually (New York Times Min 5). A third of these wastes, which are organic, demand 85 million dollars a year to export to the landfills, further resulting to declining landfills. When the organic wastes are left to decompose, they add up to the present dangerous methane gas to the atmosphere. Some organizations, however, perceive increasing population as an opportunity for more production of human wastes to fertilizer pellets for plant growth and biofuel is generated for energy. The groups, however, fail to realize other associated challenges.
According to McNally (min 4) increased human population demands more infrastructures (New York Times 1), which is economically overwhelming. From the survey conducted by Melissa, high population results to economical challenges for families in less developed countries, more deaths of women while giving birth, low developments and unstable families (Gates min 10). According to Melissa, rising population in the world calls for the need of using family planning methods. Family planning, Melissa notes is a strategy for save the lives of women and children and improve their future (Gates min 15). According to Melissa, use of birth control methods will enable global health sector fight the present health challenges such as death among children. Small-scale farmers, in addition, in Africa will also be able to plant sufficient foods for their children.
