when its population increases beyond the capacity of the land and water to provide adequate food for all, and when the unequal distribution of wealth widens into a gulf of social injustice, the result is disaster. The civilization collapses. History is replete with the ruins of civilizations such as the Mayans, Greeks, Incas, and Romans, that failed to recognize the constraints of their environment. Why are we unable to foresee the consequences of our practices?
Although this is true we can provide adequate food and water for all.
