Exponential growth is the growth of a quantity, like population size for example. The connection between these two is that exponential growth plays a key role in many environmental problems and issues: by having population growth, resource use and waste, poverty, and global climate change. The world is experiencing substantial increases in population. This is not just causing problems for poor and undeveloped countries, but also for many developing nations. The problem with
In the new era we live in, the levels of obese and overweight individuals are highly growing across the globe. Overweight is defined as the identification of individuals and groups at increased risk of morbidity and mortality. Obesity is considered to be a disease of fat accumulating irregularly to an extent that it can harmfully disrupt an individual's health, it is also related to psychological problems and negative consequences. The situation of cumulative incidents of excess body fat is mostly due to industrialization, a mixture of little exercise, more abundance and availability of food, commonly in the industrialized nations of the Western Hemisphere. This situation comes along with a lot of controversy on the topic; overweight and obese individuals began to feel offended and discriminated by society, thus in reaction to this they created the Fat Acceptance Movement.
Globalization represents a great intellectual breakthrough on human beings and their thinking, societies, nations, their entities and cultures and their borders. The adverse effects of globalization on civil and political human rights: 1. Divide the world into highly wealthy societies where human rights and other highly impoverished communities are mostly realized. People suffer from the loss of the core foundations of living, such as food, housing, science and healing, freedom, justice, equality, culture, and opportunities for production and creativity. United Nations statistics indicate a significant increase in the proportion of the poor and the unemployed in recent years.
The world is rapidly changing due to this increase in technology and electronics, resulting in increases air, heat, noise, and water pollution. For instance, although the use of technology in agriculture has increased crop yield while reducing the cost of production, pollution has become a major setback for technological reliance in this sector. According to a study conducted by Liu et al. (2014), agricultural technology in China has resulted to large volumes of residue plastic film, which adversely affect the soil structure, crop growth, and nutrient and water transport. The study confirms "the volume of plastic film mulch used in China increased nearly four-fold from 319,000 tons to 1,245,000 tons from 1991 to 2011" (Liu et al., 2014).
Third, he suggest that income will rise more in Asia, so people should look a those markets in order to crate successful businesses. Fourth, he affirms that today the human kind has become a, “urban-based society.” Fifth, he denounces that human have changed fundamental natural processes on the global scale, and the economy must be drastically reshaped in order to become more sustainable. Sixth, the difference between the richest country and poorest country is widening to unimaginable proportions. This book gives to people some truly interesting thoughts on the economic future. Sachs gives a deep and interesting analysis on the ongoing mutation of the economy.
Such changes have affected mainly on the individual and society but in different ways  and the phenomenon of cities growth is steadily increase, so the urban population growth rate exceeds the population growth rate . Herper and Gottman defined the urban sprawl process by spread and extension out the border of the city, e.g. the urban sprawl without adhering to the limits of the areas where this process has occurred . The urban sprawl is known as continuing increase in the numbers of the population, whether in regular or irregular housing, which increases the demand on agricultural land, then creates defect in the ecological balance . Several studies indicate that urbanization in cities of developing countries is happening in a quantitative manner rather than quality; e.g.
The human population has been soared since the industrial revolution. The increase in human population implies there would be more human activities on the earth and they could affect the earth’s hydrologic cycle in multiple ways. The quantity, as well as the quality of water being circulated in the earth’s hydrologic cycle, is being influenced. Firstly, urbanization would alter hydrologic cycle because of the reduced water permeability into underground. Underground water is an important component of hydrologic cycle since it accounted for nearly one-third of the global freshwater resource.
1) High growth rates of GDP per capita in developed countries are due to an increase and, after that, stabilization of the population in these countries; 2) High growth rates of production’s factors, especially labor productivity; 3) High rates of transformation of the structure in the economy (technological progress law); 4) High rates of social and ideological transformation - urbanization and secularization; 5) The ability of developed countries to find new markets and sources of raw materials, creating a global unity based on civil and military technologies; 6) Restriction of spread (1/3 countries of the world 's population have not yet reached the minimum level of that modern level of technology). All these characteristics of modern economic growth are closely interrelated. Therefore, the high growth income per capita is a consequence of the rapid growth in labor productivity. High incomes, in turn, lead to structural changes in demand, and consequently, to structural reorganization of the economy (as the demand for goods and services is increasing faster than the demand for food). Structural adjustment requires new technologies, which change the nature of the productive forces, its location and influence on the average-sized enterprises.
Growing population creates more needs for everything and stimulates the economic growth, the combination of a growing and richer population creates great business opportunities for many companies in the consumer and discretionary sectors for example. Ageing population is already a reality and will increase in the years to come. Population ageing is one of the strongest trends of this century and it will have important implications. The consequences of an ageing population are diverse. On the negative side, we can stress the high cost for governments (retirement, medical expenses, and dependence).
1. INTRODUCTION Urbanization in Malaysia has increased with time and this leads to the improved living standard of Malaysian. As our country continues to develop, more land has been turned into residential area, thus encouraging the population growth. However, when population increases, the amount of waste generated increases as well. Serious environmental problem such as pollution in Malaysia occurred due to the increasing number of municipal solid waste management (Saeed et al., 2009).
