#OVERPOPULATION LEADS TO UNSUSTAINABLE #ENERGY FUTURE

With energy consumption rising as rapidly as shown in Figure 1, it is hard to see what is happening when viewed at the level of the individual. To get a different view, Figure 3 shows average consumption per person, using world population estimates by Angus Maddison.
