Introduction

Carlos Felipe Dur�n 11a May 2, 2009 Before the decade of the 90's and the beginning of the XXI century, there were not so many environmental problems as they are nowadays. The only problem that they could ever have was that the natural resources that were used for human consumption were not enough.

Some of this issues are that there are many CO2 and other organic compounds gases in the air that increase the temperature of the earth causing a global warming, there are some chlorine-fluorine-carbonate (CFC) gases that are destructing the ozone layer, also water is being contaminated and the potable water will end soon, and not only water, but many other resources that come from plants or animals will end soon also. ...read more.

If human population goes down, the consumption will also go down and the earth and other animals that live on it will be saved. In other words, a Third World War or any natural catastrophe will be good to save the earth. ...read more.
