By reducing the population to a smaller number, it becomes more manageable and relatable, making it easier to study and analyze various aspects of the global population.

While climate change is a global concern, the question specifically asks for a global issue, and climate does not fit that criteria. Food, transportation, and education are all global issues as they impact people worldwide and require global efforts to address.
