Human population advances seem inevitably connected to deforestation, habitat destruction, overhunting, overfishing, water bonafides, and other calculus imprints. All these issues connect in some ways with starvation, wars, disease and many societal consequences. These are not from the pages of history but apply to current challenges and endemic to global diseases, cultural and religious conflicts, an upward trajectory of population growth to infinity, and political wars of mass hatreds. In the U.S. Montana is a notable target from environmental assaults conspicuously reflected in toxic wastes from metals mining found in ground water, rivers and soil. Logging and forest tree burnings are part of the Montana landscape. Collapse of the Maya civilization is a subject of archaeology and its evidence that severe drought conditions and overcrowding combined with warfare created a society of conflicts and eventual destruction of society.
