What data from Easter Island suggested that there was an ecological disaster there?

+2 votes

 

There were large stone statues dotting the landscape.

The island had never had any trees.

No bones of food animals were found in the oldest human garbage piles.

The island was treeless when the Europeans arrived, but pollen cores from the swamps indicate that the island had once been forested.
