    Overpopulation and Overconsumption In The World

     

    Shocked! Hurt! These are probably the only emotions we are feeling right now. These pictures are going to shake you up from the long dead sleep most of us are in while we are ruthlessly abusing Mother Nature and her beauty. As people hailing from different countries and cultures, we really need to stop the blame game and passing the buck from one end to the other. Overpopulation and overconsumption are no more national issues; they are world issues and we need to stare hard at these pictures and design a solution, because if we don’t, we will have a generation that will have no place to live on.

    These bunch of photographers thought that instead of writing long articles on the shocking state of affairs, it is much better if the world saw it for itself. These are extremely painful to look at; not only because of the way humanity has taken over mother nature, but also at our attitude despite of the innumerable ways in which we have abused Mother Nature.The Guardian was the first to publish these pictures.
