Human Population

Introduction:

The human population has been growing rapidly since the 1800s and there are currently more than 7.6 billion humans on this planet – all of whom need fresh water, food, and energy to survive. Can the current rate of population growth and resource consumption continue indefinitely? As you work through this module you will learn more about the causes and consequences of rapid population growth and resource usage.

By the end of this module, you should be able to:

– Identify the causes of human population growth over the last several centuries

– Explain the concept of carrying capacity and how this relates to the human population

– Identify which countries have the largest/smallest growth rates

– Identify which countries have the largest/smallest ecological footprints
