Reportedly, the UK government chief scientist has warned that a growing world population will cause a "perfect storm" of food, energy and water shortages by 2030.
By 2030 the demand for resources will create a crisis with dire consequences, Prof John Beddington said.
Demand for food and energy will jump 50% by 2030 and for fresh water by 30%, as the population tops 8.3 billion, he told a conference in London.
Climate change will exacerbate matters in unpredictable ways, he added.
