Feeling positive about the world today? I can fix that. Here is a graph of human population for the last 12,000 years, or what we generally consider to be "history" or "civilization". Something like a 6 fold increase in the last 500 years. No problems, though, right? No way human activity could be fundamentally altering the planet right? OK, sleep tight, I'm sure someone else will solve the problem.
