Population growth is critical to environmental change. IPAT (from both Week 1 and 2 readings) is an equation that describes four variables that interact to produce environmental change:

Impact population × affluence × technology (or I P × A × T)

Based on your knowledge of IPAT, answer these questions:

  • Given this equation, what drives environmental decline?
  • Compare the environmental impact of the U.S. against any developing country (try to calculate or find calculations for the actual “I” values); explain what factors contribute to these two different environmental impact factors (this will require external research—avoid repeating your peers’ choice of a developing nation).

Please: title your reply with the developing country you chose, so that your peers can easily scroll down the list to see which developing countries have *not* yet been chosen.

Note: always be sure to cite your external sources and include the link.
