World Population Day 2014 will be observed on July 11

The United Nations' (UN) World Population Day is annually observed on July 11 to reaffirm the human right to plan for a family. World Population is estimated to be 7.023 billion with a rapid growth in the last 200 years.
The population problem isn't just a matter of the number of people. People consume food, fresh water, wood, minerals, and energy as we go about our daily lives. And producing food, pumping groundwater, harvesting wood, mining minerals, and burning fuel all deplete our resource base and produce pollution. A critical factor is energy consumption. Americans make up only 5% of the world's population and yet consume 20% of its energy!

Arth, a leading voice on population matters, tells The Washington Times Communities that "(w)e have a catastrophe, but it is necessarily more complicated than what a country parson living in England envisioned back in the 18th century. When Thomas Malthus published ‘Essay on the Principle of Population' in 1798 the world's population was around 1 billion.

World Population Balance

Learn more from one of Earth Protect's Nonprofit Partners World Population Balance. WPB envisions a world where no one suffers in dire poverty and misery for lack of enough food, water, and other basic needs. We alert, inform and educate that overpopulation is a root cause of resource depletion, species extinction, and rising poverty. To avoid more misery, catastrophe, and death, we advocate and support a smaller, truly sustainable population.
