NEW 2011 EDITION "What Every Citizen Should Know About Our Planet" WECSKAOP - III - ... featuring "the single most important data set in the history of our species."

Beginning with a worldwide population of two billion in 1930, our species will reach seven billion sometime late in 2011 (five additional billions in a single human lifetime), with still more billions (numbers eight and nine) on-track to arrive before 2050.

A graph of civilization's demographic history over the past ten millennia (8000 BC - 2000 AD) exhibits late-phase exponential conditions strikingly similar to a graph of the fission events in the nuclear detonation that destroyed Hiroshima, Japan at the close of World War II.

"We submit that there exists a specific and fundamental repertoire of scientific information that every citizen should know about our planet

and that this information includes thresholds, tipping points, and unintended consequences; carrying capacities, limiting factors, delayed feedbacks, and overshoot; exponential mathematics and J-curves; as well as demographics and world population levels past, present, and future."

"Brilliant"... ..."Light years better than Beyond Six Billion" ... "A Template for Biospherics 101" ...


EYE-OPENING - Its mathematical depiction of real-world population calamities that are produced by populations that occupy ***less than 2/1000ths of one percent*** of the "open space" that appears to remain theoretically-available to them (e.g. - The red-tide dinoflagellates known as Karenia brevis AND a classic 20th century study of climb and collapse in a reindeer herd on an Alaskan island).

In other words, both of the above calamities (including catastrophic fish kills in marine environments and a 99% die-off among the reindeer) took place and proceeded to completion in environments that were 99.998% "empty" - in environments that, to any visually-sentient species, would have appeared to be ALMOST ENTIRELY EMPTY.
