The Exploding Population Bomb: Societies Under Stress

The Exploding Population Bomb: Societies Under Stress

Global population in 2010 is 6.8 billion people. By 2010, the number of people on Earth is projected to be 9.5+ billion with growth mainly in less developed and developing nations. This book focusses on the fact that wwe are not meeting the water, food, shelter, healthcare, and othe need of at least 1/3 of today'spopulation and how this may be achieveable now and for significantly larger populations in a two generation future. Social, economic, environmental, and political stress will build up for governments, ecosystems, and existing populations as competition surges for peoples' basic needs andnatural resources that fuel national economies. This book discusses practices that work to slow and stem population growth and alleviate stress by providing citizens with personal security, education, employment, and humand and property rights. Likewise, it evaluates methodologies and technologies, some applicable now and others that are in development that can serve to diminish water and food deficiencies where they are acute, mainly in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America. Moreover, the book analyzes how adaptation to changing conditions and cultural norms can protect existing and future expanded populations from natural hazards (e.g., earthquakes, floods, disease) and anthropogenic disasters (e.g., wars/conlicts, pollution, global warming). Lastly, the book examines attempts at international treaties and their probability of success by reducing national economic goals to some degree for the global good.
