    AERIAL VIEWS MANILA, PHILIPPINES - OVERPOPULATION Having about 23 millions inhabitants Manila, Capitol of the Philippines, is one of the biggest metropolitan regions on the planet. About the half of its population lives in extremely densely populated Slums and Squatter Camps. Manila has 36,000 people per square mile, making it one of the most densely populated cities in the world. The density is even higher in the 500 slums that line the city’s rivers, railroad tracks, and garbage dumps, where you can find more than 200,000 people per square mile. Seen from above it gets visible how close those cottages and shanty housings are compressed against each other with their varicolored rooftops. Manila shows, like the other Megacities the excrescences of overpopulation. Nearly 7.5 billion people are living on the planet today. The United Nations expect a consistent growth, which might lead to nine billion in 2050 and eleven billion human beings in 2100. Captured in February 2017, © Bernhard Lang Read Less
