Abstract  - Classical Population 'Too-late' conditions  (Three classical real-world examples of climb-and-collapse outcomes) - (Click image to open pdf executive briefing)

'Too-late' population calamities in environmental surroundings that remain 99.998% unoccupied - Three classical real-world examples  (Click image to open pdf executive briefing)

This open-courseware PowerPoint presentation offers an

overview of core population / environment principles, data sets, and understandings.  Topics include humankind's demographic history and trajectories, their implications, Earth's planetary biospheric life-support machinery, and considerations such as sustainability, carrying capacity,
environmental limits, limiting factors, actual real-world climb-and-collapse calamities, as well as humankind's
current trajectories toward 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, or 16.6 billions by the
end of this century.  An ideal "Biospheric Literacy and Sustainability 101" resource for all first-year undergraduates (of every major).
