      So, we have about 7 billion people on this planet.

      We are adding one billion people to the planet every 12 years. That's about 220,000 per day.

      Some effects of over-population are Depletion of natural resources like fossil fuels, Mass species extinctions, Increased levels of air pollution, water pollution, soil contamination and noise pollution, Deforestation and loss of ecosystems... etc

      Should more be done to control the population?

      Teens are crazy towards sex that leads to increase in population. Sex education for teenagers is must.

      China alone counts about 1.5 billion people. And India about 1.1 billion or more. Can't really prevent it tbh and can't really do anything about it.

      I think people need to stop breeding, or at least not so much. We can't even feed the hungry that already exist, let alone new borns that are born every minute.
      It's getting out of control and it needs to be stopped.

      What makes the situation worse is that at the other end people are living to a much greater age.
