5. Note: The last Ice Age on this planet ended about 12,000 years ago.

That coincides with the beginning of this chart. We have no idea of the world population during the Pleistocene era, which began about 2.5 million years ago and covers most of the time Humans have existed. During the Ice Age, human population lived very precariously. It's amazing, in many ways, that human beings survived at all.
