far more resistant to changes than we think. There have been many studies concerning the state of wildlife underwater after being subjects to change. Some of them reveal the destructions that happened under surface while a fair load also reports about how resistant the aquatic ecosystem can be. On top of this, a marine biologist, Jennifer O’Leary, reveals that many of the so called “bright spots” of the sea, the most sensitive beings, can persist through disturbances.

In his article “How disappearing sea ice has put Arctic ecosystem under threat”, Robin McKie warns that over two million square kilometres of midwinter sea ice have melted in less than forty years. Global warming, caused by excessive carbon emissions from cars and factories, is the main cause of sea ice loss. This deterioration of the Arctic natural ecosystem is seriously endangering many species like seals, fish, polar bears, foxes, and wolves since according to the marine ecologist Tom Brown, the Arctic food chain depends on a stable sea ice platform to survive.

This article tackles what the predictions of the future concerning overpopulation and the sharing of the planet in the future. Data has estimated that the human population count will be of 9.8 billion people when we reach the year 2050. We are foreseeing the European continent to diminish in number only by a few millions, indicating no growth whatsoever in the next 30 years. Yet, we expect the African continent to have their population multiplied by 2.6 by the same time, the Asian continent to rise with 750 million new members and 200 million more in America.

While countries are still using renewable resources at a faster rate than they can replenish, the world community still has not agreed on a response to this issue.
