Description:

In this video Paul Andersen talks about the impacts of human growth on the environment and on themselves. The population, affluence, and destructive technology of a population impact the environment according to the IPAT equation. An analogous model is the ecological footprint which increases with development of a nation. Large economies contribute to resource use and habitat destruction. However small economies can lead to problems like disease and hunger.
