Thank you Steve. This is marvelous. In my work history, we discussed this phenomenon as "pig in a python" because of the shape of the curve. It reminds me of the "hat" in The Little Prince. The upside is the population rate can decline. The sad news is the social tensions that arise from migration into areas of lower population rates (and their affiliated rise in standard of living) as a result of climate change and the resulting political upheaval.
