Why is radiocarbon dating only rarely applied in geological work

The world’s population at the time of this writing is 7,301,880,780 people on the face of the Earth.This results in adding curvature to the upward trend (an acceleration) by flattening out the early part of the curve. Short-term undulations in the sea level rise curve should not be used as a predictive curve for the future.This new signature of “acceleration” was what made the news in the new study, even though the long term trend went down. They are affected by a wide variety of natural phenomena.This post was translated from the Spanish by computer and may therefore contain some grammatical errors.The question of whether or not overpopulation in the world is clearly debatable.When I read that, I (like everyone else) assumed that corrections to the satellite sea level data since 1993 have now led to a revised trend toward faster (not slower) sea level rise. (For those concerned about Miami going underwater, these numbers equate to a little more than one inch every 10 years).
During the satellite era (since 1993), the trend in sea level rise was revised downward, by almost 10%, from 3.28 mm/year to about 3.0 mm/year.
The question therefore is not to analyze whether the Earth is able to support 10 billion people, as it most likely can, but if it can do it indefinitely. The capacity of an environment to support a species is called carrying capacity.
In the context of ecology, the carrying capacity (K) is a theoretical concept, which represents the maximum number of individuals of a species that is capable of supporting ecosystem .
Experiments in natural areas under management by government agencies show that populations are limited by the medium.
Essentially the availability of food, but also to a lesser extent by other factors such as water, shelter and space (see for example: Carrying Capacity – How many deer can we Have? Populations living therefore tend to fluctuate naturally around a certain level which is defined as its charge capacity.
Political campaigns to reduce the growth of the human population are decreasing, not increasing.
