Support or Refute this statement:

The Agricultural Revolution had a negative effect on humanity. Use 3+ examples from your notes/ text to support your point. What did the future look like? In what ways did societies based on the domestication of plants and animals differ from those rooted in a gathering and hunting economy? In the first place, the Agricultural Revolution led to an increase in human population, as the greater productivity of agriculture was able to support much larger numbers. An early agricultural settlement uncovered near Jericho in present-day Israel probably had 2,000 people, a vast increase in the size of human communities compared to much smaller paleolithic bands. On a global level, scholars estimate that the world's population was about 6 million around 10,000 years ago, before the Agricultural Revolution got under way, and shot up to 50 million by 5,000 years ago and 250 million by the beginning of the Common Era (year 0). Here was the real beginning of the human dominance over other forms of life on the planet. STEP 1: READ! (1st Paragraph on p. 61) Step 2: Is this affect positive or negative?
