Malthusian theories are views on population that suggest that without restraint, human population will increase exponentially, compared to a linear growth of food supply. This ideal has played a role in some climate change narratives and even solutions with population growth and size being the blame/cause for environmental change. World consumption rates are a growing concern that should be a focus before we turn to creating population related issues like age gaps and a shortage in industries. I have created maps to display the highest consumption rates with a lower world population, compared to our current and future levels. This assists in visualizing the concern of our consumption.
