overpop.jpgWell, anyone who watched the first half of the new CNN documentary, “Planet in Peril”, surely had their eyes opened wide. Last night, the footage concentrated on the effects that overpopulation and species loss has on our environment. It was quite unnerving. You might think it’s bad now, but by the year 2050, the world population will increase by 50%, to over 9 billion people!

The way we live today has consequences for those who will live in the future, so it’s important to do what we can now to live in a more sustainable way, to ensure that future residents of this planet will have enough resources to live. Too many people = too many resources being consumed. Deforestation contributes significantly to global warming and habitat loss. The devastating loss of animal species affects whole ecosystems.

Tune in tonight for the second half of “Planet in Peril” at 9pm EST.
