Industrialization is seen as only one facet of a multi-purpose endeavor to raise the level of consumption. As the world population grows toward 10 billion, consumption of water, food and energy is expanding at a rate that cannot be maintained without depleting the planet’s resources.
If we fail to address these two issues together, we face a grim future of economic, social and environmental ills, warns a new report prepared by a group of scientists and other experts for the Royal Society.

Population-level data (adult per capita alcohol consumption data in particular) cannot, however, identify different drinking patterns in a population, who does the drinking (e.g., which age groups), how patterns relate to socioeconomic characteristics of the population or to gender, where the drinking takes place, when and how it is consumed.

Most citizens- and most government officials-assumed incorrectly that below-replacement fertility automatically means immediate zero population growth and that U.S.
The relationship between population growth and growth of economic output has been studied extensively (Heady & Hodge, ).Many analysts believe that economic growth in high-income countries is likely to be relatively slow in coming years in part because population growth in these countries is predicted to slow considerably (Baker, Delong, & Krugman, ).
The formula for exponential population growth is N=N 0 e rt where N 0 is the starting population, e is a logarithmic constant (), r is the rate of growth (birth rate minus death rate), and t is time. If you plot this equation, you see a curve arching upward over time as the population increases exponentially, assuming no change in the rate.
Nevertheless, it is striking how climate and population issues are connected. The curves of population growth and carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere since almost precisely follow each other. Population growth automatically increases energy consumption, which in turn means increased greenhouse gas emissions, says Götmark.
In the rest of the book he discusses strategies for achieving a global steady state economy, focusing on three main themes including: 1) reducing the consumption of natural resources to sustainable levels and placing caps on the use of fossil fuels, 2) redistribution of income - promoting social equality, and 3) reducing human population to Cited by: Zero population growth, sometimes abbreviated ZPG (also called the replacement level of fertility), is a condition of demographic balance where the number of people in a specified population neither grows nor declines, considered as a social aim by some.
