3 Introduction: With the progress of humanity (which occurred due to rapid industrialization and improvement in technology and health) Jobs and economy increased so did population. The rapid increase in population has not only caused a reduction in our resources but also changed our social lives. The Problem is now that to emerge on a global scale and to counter it engineers have to develop modernized technologies, utilizing free energy and building skyscraper. To make things better we must find a permanent solution, Such as to provide a growing economy that requires jobs for young and safety of citizens. Have customs + and religious attachments for cities so that decentralization does not occur. Provide skyscrapers to accommodate for large populations at lower costs and higher facilities and take notes from developing technologies that promote use of Clean and free energy to reduce costs and preserve our resources. When the whole population is productive only then an increase in population will give benefit to us but this increase in population also must be controlled to some extent because an unchecked population growth will cause that nature will have to balance things in its own way. The population Question Revisited: The world has experienced an unprecedented population growth in the past four decades. The author George Moffett has explored the situation from the perspective of two schools of thoughts: one who considers it as grave danger and the others who consider it not as critical as other problems prevailing in our era. The growth numbers are nevertheless astounding, a population growth of 3 billion since 1960, with a forecast of another 2 billion may be added in the 20 years swelling it up to 8 billion. The situation in developing countries has added to the miseries of the masses with limited resources. The population growth is characterized by the parallel advancements of medical science which in conjunction with agriculture modernization contributed to the life longevity and decline in death rates. The upward trend started in the 16 th century, which continued in 17 th , 18 th and 19 th century in which the world population exceeded one billion and since then in the 20 th and 21 st century the numbers just multiplied. The growth rate in developing countries is more than the developed countries and is not uniform among different regions of the world, in Africa the population is expected to be doubled 2035.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
