Weeks Population: Overpopulation and Public Health
Overpopulation And Healthcare Costs
Infant mortality heavily impacts families around the world but is often overlooked due to myths of overpopulation and health-illiteracy surrounding pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. According to the Global Health Observatory, the infant mortality rate has decreased about 45% since 1990, but with an estimate of 4.5 million deaths under the age of one in 2015, more effective solutions are yet to be found. In developing countries such as Nepal, and especially in its poverty-stricken communities, the inhabitants tend to follow their own superstitious customs and home remedies. Already a country with a low GDP, low-income and unemployed families in villages cannot afford to see a specialist when the mothers are in labor. The lack of health institutions and hospitals in proximity to their homes, as well as the lack of access to a family physician further aggravates the issue. The Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal recognizes that one of its biggest challenges is addressing how to reduce infant mortality, as well as maternal mortality.
hoof problems, overpopulation and health hazards
Whether AGW is a serious problem or not depends on projections. The problem is that these projections ar extremely difficult to calculate with any certainty. We are relying on conjecture - it MAY be bad, as opposed to it WILL be bad.
Yet we KNOW global problems like poverty, overpopulation and health are real and impending and very bad problems that need fixing now. And so cheap energy is needed. Now.
We don't know yet if the oceans will become acidic and we will all die. Some people are leaping to that conclusion without scientific evidence. They claim thh barrier reef is dying from acid oceans, there is no such evidence. They claim a parallel with the PT extinction, there is no such link with paleoclimate data (at least not in scientific circles). These claims smack of alarmism, and most people don't believe it, and will not vote based on it.
