Population: "Too-late" conditions in nearly 'empty' environments?

Population: "Too-late" conditions in nearly 'empty' environments?

"TOO-LATE" conditions in environments that are 99.998% UNOCCUPIED? - (Three CLASSICAL real-world examples of populations that "waited too-long.") Population and carrying capacity thresholds and boundaries that should not be transgressed and real-world population disasters in environments that are ALMOST ENTIRELY EMPTY (99.998% unoccupied). How our innate or instinctive "VAST OPEN-SPACE" suppositions may be about to carry the whole of humankind, civilization, and earth's biosphere beyond environmental and carrying capacity thresholds that should not be transgressed. This article documents AND QUANTIFIES three separate and classical examples of population-environment catastrophes and 99% die-offs in environments that VISUALLY APPEARED TO REMAIN ALMOST ENTIRELY EMPTY. This has potential implications for humankind.
