Question and answer
Q: Analyze the type of growth exhibited by the human population and its effect on the environment
A: One type of of growth exhibited is exponential population growth. With the exponential growth of the human population the global population is nearing to seven billion people, the growth is showing signs of slowing, but is still continuing. [ More people mean more resources used, more pollution produced, and more threats to other species. Because of this, human population growth is a cause of
all of the three categories of environmental problems. World human population did not reach its first billion until the 1800s. It took only about 100 years to double the population, and doubling time has been decreasing rapidly ever since. It is this increase in population, affluence, and technology that has caused the increased environmental impact of humans on the environment. Another type of growth exhibited is Logistical Population Growth or known as demographic transition . The demographic transition shows how populations increase as modern sanitation and health care allow historically high death rates to decrease. Since birth rates do not automatically decrease to match the decreasing death rates, populations grow rapidly. As birth rates decrease to once again match death rates, a country is said to undergo its demographic transition. ]
