Sudden global population reduction is not a good long-term solution for the problem of global sustainability as it has been implied by various policies related to global population and there is a simple obvious reason for this. The reason is that the population is not really that huge so as to make it impossible for other proper solutions to be discovered in terms of population growth and the way in which this affects us all.
The reality is that there is no quick fix to such problems and especially not the sudden global reduction but there are long-term solutions which should be considered for obtaining actual results as it was revealed by recent researches on this matter developed all around the world. It might just be the right time to stop trying to find these perfect immediate solutions as they appear to be and actually focus on how to efficiently tackle this problem and obtain proper long term results.
No one can ignore the fact that there are a lot of people living on Earth at the moment and that we all take up a lot of space and consume a great deal of global resources and this affects us all one way or the other.
On the other hand, if we take the time to actually look into the solution of saving the planet through sudden global population reduction and control we will see that it does not only come with ethical problems which many seem to forget about but also with a great lack of practicality. This is how ecologist Corey Bradshaw, the director of ecological modelling at the Environment Institute at the University of Adelaide in Australia has explained the recurrent phenomenon that actually surrounds the state of the planet’s life in terms of climate change and various other serious environmental concerns.
Corey Bradshaw’s resulting research that has just been published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences offers serious, explicit reasons why the idea of going for population control at a global level is not the proper long-term solution for the environmental issues that we are facing at a global level and will definitely not help save the planet on the long run.
What we must all do is focus on proper policies and new technological ways in which to manage to reverse the unlimited reduction of natural resources through uncontrolled consumption. We should dedicate ourselves to paying attention to recycling and other such measures which can actually help us obtain global sustainability achievements.
