For example, human population growth affects all the other problems: But before we let ourselves give way to this one-sidedly pessimistic scenario, let’s examine further the problems facing us, and their complexities. Aquaculture runoff causes pollution and eutrophication. The chemical industry and many other industries manufacture or release into the airsoil, oceans, lakes, and rivers many toxic chemicals, some of them “unnatural” and effondement only by humans, others present naturally in tiny concentrations e.

That factor 12 is less than the factor of 32 that I mentioned in the preceding paraph, because there are already First World inhabitants with high-impact styles, although they are greatly outnumbered by Third World inhabitants. Why Nations Fail Daron Acemoglu. There are many “optimists” who argue that the world could support double its human population, and who consider only the increase in human numbers and not the average increase in per-capita impact.

At present, it is untenable politically for First World leaders to propose to their own citizens that they lower their living standards, as measured by lower resource consumption and waste production rates.
