Other believe that technology will itself reach a limit to its capabilities.
I rather agree with the second group. It's true that advanced technology and knowledge can continue providing food but mostly are artificial/fake (example: fake eggs and fake rice, ...)
ok tema bien explicado
la tecnología ha facilitado la producción de alimentos para que la humanidad tenga para alimentarse, la producción de alimentos aumenta diariamente debido a la población humana, los cambios en el ambiente pueden reducir los cultivos, o factores como el clima son importantes para mantener el control de producción. hay personas que dicen que la tecnología puede mejorar la capacidad de cultivar permitiendo alimentar lo que sea en la tierra.
What is regulating factor?
What is sanitation and medical care?
The impact that this is having on the environment is substantial in both negative and positive ways.
When scholars in the 1700's estimated the total number of people that today earth could sustain, they were living in a very different world than our world.
Today airplanes can transport people and food halfway around the world in a matter of hours, not weeks or months, as was the case with ships in the 1700s.
Today we have sophisticated, powered farm equipment that can rapidly plow, plant, fertilize and harvest acres of crops a day. One farmer can cultivate hundreds of acres of land. This is a far cry from the draft-animal plowing, hand planting and hand harvesting performed by farmers in the 1700s.
Additionally, synthetic fertilizers, pesticides and modern irrigation methods allow us to produce crops on formerly marginal lands and increase the productivity of other agricultural lands.
With the increase in the amount of land that each individual can farm, the food production has increased. This increased food production, in turn, has increased the potential human K relative to estimates from the 1700s.
Whereas technological advances have increased the human K, changes in environmental conditions could potentially decrease it.
For example, a global or even a large regional change in the climate could reduce K below current estimates. Coastal flooding due to rising ocean levels associated with global warming and desertification of agricultural lands resulting from poor farming practices or natural climate variation could cause food production to be less than that upon which the human carrying capacity was originally estimated.
There are those who believe that advances in technology and other knowledge will continue to provide the means to feed virtually any human population size. Those who subscribe to this philosophy believe that this continuous innovation will "save us" from ourselves and changes in the environment.
Others believe that technology will itself reach a limit to its capabilities. This group argues that resources on earth - including physical space - are limited and that eventually we must learn to live within our means. Aside from the physical limitations of the earth's natural resources and food production capabilities, we must consider the conditions we are willing to live with.
