Spaceship Earth

Spaceship Earth. A concept I was first introduced to in my high school environmental studies class. We are all on this one ship and must share the available resources.  Are there enough resources for the people that live here? Are we taking care of these resources for future generations?
This past week there was some media coverage on the world reaching 7 billion people. It has also been estimated by 2050 the world population will be at 9 billion.  What does this growing population mean for our “Spaceship Earth?”

Recently I read an interesting article on water use and population growth. With the growing population there is an ever growing need for water.

What are your thoughts on the growing world population and the future of the Earth’s natural resources?
