According to Macionis, “I = PAT, where environmental impact (I) reflects a society’s population (P), its level of affluence (A), and its level of technology (T)” (2011, p. 463). In other words, the higher the population, the richer the country, and the higher level of technology, causes a greater impact upon the environment of that society. In your own words, describe the term environmental deficit, and discuss the effects a rising global population has upon the environment.
