Expert Answer:

Current human population growth appears to be J-shaped as we have either not yet met our population carrying capacity, or have exceeded the carrying capacity, but have not yet seen the population crash normally associated with J-shaped or exponential population growth. If the human population meets the carrying capacity it will closely resemble an S-shaped population curve.
