The IPAT model is a formula used to calculate the environmental impact on the environment caused by humans.  It is described as I = P x A x T.  The environmental impact is represented by the (I) in the equation.  There are three main factors that influence the impact, and those factors include the (PAT) portion of the equation, which stands for Population, Affluence, and Technology.  For this assignment, you will research a country of interest and use the country’s data to make an argument for which would have the highest Environmental Impact or (I), as part of the IPAT model.
