ppt 3 - Real-world population calamities in 'open-space' conditions

ppt 3 - Real-world population calamities in 'open-space' conditions

Ratings: (0)|Views: 702|Likes:
UPDATED - Population collapse in environments that appear to be almost entirely empty? POWERPOINT - Crises even when a population occupies less than 2/1000ths of one percent of a seemingly "vast amount of open space" that appears to remain available?

An introduction to climb-and-collapse systems and the "open-space" hypothesis.

The above scenarios happen all the time and tend to be the rule as opposed to exceptions - which suggests that we pay more attention to that "late-phase" exponential curve that characterizes human population growth over the past two centuries.

Mathematical insights that suggest that "running out of" food, or space, or resources (or anything else), though legitimate, may be distracting us from other dangers.

Includes three appendicies with the supporting mathematics and links to other PowerPoint and pdf resources.

This PowerPoint addresses human population growth, planetary carrying capacity, and overshoot using actual climb-and-collapse realities in reindeer herds and population explosions of red-tide dinoflagellates. Assesses humanity's current demographics in light of earth's environment and its biospheric machinery.

(1) Earth's atmosphere and seas as thin surface films, and

(2) Real-world population calamities that routinely occur in environments that appear to remain almost entirely empty, and 99% population die-offs even as the afflicted populations occupy less than 2/1000ths of one percent of the environment that appears to remain theoretically-available to them.

And the associated mathematics suggests that humanity's first and foremost limiting factors may not be "running out" of food, resources, space, or anything else -

but may be our habit of releasing much, much more than just our biological and metabolic wastes into our surroundings, along with the serious eradication, fragmentation, and physical damage that we are inflicting on earth's biospheric life-support machinery.

There are now five presentations in this series:

(1) WORLD POPULATION and CORE DEMOGRAPHICS - An Introductory Overview
(2) ECOLOGICAL SERVICES and BIOSPHERIC MACHINERY
(3) POPULATION-ENVIRONMENT CALAMITIES in "vast open-space conditions?"
(4) THIN FILMS - Earth's atmosphere, oceans, and seas
(5) EXPONENTIAL AND NON-LINEAR MATHEMATICS IN POPULATION SYSTEMS
