ÅENER, TAMER ÅENER YEÅÄ°M TEKÄ°N ING 102 CRN10284 NOVEMBER 7, 2012 WHY OVERPOPULATÄ°ON OCCURS Overpopulation is on the top of the world’s the biggest problems list; even if it is not, it will be. Nasif Nahle states in the article of Overpopulation, every year, more than 81 million people are added to the world-wide population (2003).
