What problem did population theorists of the Industrial Revolution think the world's rising population would cause?

Possible Answers:

Famine

A reoccurrence of widespread bubonic plague

The emergence of new diseases

Over-urbanization

Correct answer:

Famine

Explanation:

Malthus believed the world's population was growing far too fast for the farms and agricultural markets to keep up. He feared that the world would be plunged into a massive famine due to the lack of ability to feed the ever-rising population. While his fears were never completely realized as a worldwide famine on the scale he imagined never happened, there have been many large-scale famines that greatly diminished the populations of many nations.
