The actions of each individual have relatively small consequences but in the aggregate the effects are substantial. A substantial body of research shows the elasticity of population for many kinds of environmental impacts is typically 1–1.5. That is every 1% increase or decrease in population size, net of other factors, tends to increase or decrease stress on the environment by 1–1.5%.
