Scenario: General Decay

In the last 50 years, the world's human population has approximately doubled. This expansion was made possible by the so-called 'Green Revolution', including the practice of intensive farming, the development of high-yield crops and efficient pesticides, and the widespread use of chemical fertilizers. Maintaining this level of food production uses significant amounts of oil, water and other natural resources. At the same time, the increasing population itself consumes ever more energy for transportation and comfort, and creates more waste from discarded or outdated technology, unconsumed food, manufacturing by-products, etc. Natural habitats that should support a rich and varied eco-system are reduced to a mono-culture, which is sometimes only productive for a short time before being abandoned for new land. Waste products find their way into the environment where they can have unanticipated long-term effects on natural atmospheric and biological systems, disrupting the global food-chain, reducing diversity, and endangering life.

Estimated time until society breaks down due to pollution and wastage of natural resources:
