How excited am I? I just received an internship from the United Nations. Thank gosh I took my Will the world provide class. Without that I would be in some serious trouble. Issues that I am considering are wealth and poverty, population, food, energy, the environment, and technology. The question that I find the hardest is what order I should be concerned about them. Hmmm….
Are the rich just getting richer and the poor getting poorer? Duh! That is all that is happening. One issue is that countries are not helping each other and that is what we need.

People are having children for reasons like religion, people to work and such (Seitz 47). Another issue with world population is carrying capacity.

Food is an important issue because of where it is coming from. Where do we get our food from? A majority of it comes from other countries. While others from the United States.

By polluting, not recycling and such we are setting up a land that no one would want to live in. Do we want our children to...
