    Assume the following comes from your source:  "Today, there are more than 6.5 billion people, and that number may grow to around 9 billion within this half-century. Several decades ago, many people considered rising population to be the main challenge facing humanity. Now we realize that it matters only insofar as people consume and produce."  Assume you paraphrase it in the following way:"Over 6.5 billion people are alive today.  But in the next fifty years, that will grow to about 9 billion people. Many decades ago, the growing population was considered the biggest challenge to humans.  But it is only how much people consume and produce that matters" (Diamond). This is NOT an example of plagiarism.

    This is your source information:"If most of the world’s 6.5 billion people were in cold storage and not metabolizing or consuming, they would create no resource problem. What really matters is total world consumption, the sum of all local consumptions, which is the product of local population times the local per capita consumption rate."Assume you write this:Production and consumption are the real problems we face today. How many people the Earth can sustain is based more on total world consumption than bodies--the sum of all local consumptions, or local population times the local per capita consumption rate (Diamond).This is an example of plagiarism.
