Impact Narrative

Charles wrote in: “I am a retired fireman. I live in the LA area. I have seen first hand the result of a society that believes it is okay to use unchecked population growth as an economic model. Our economy requires growth just to sustain itself. The results are not logical. We need to stop the population growth and change our economic system to one that does not require more people, homes, energy, food etc. just to sustain itself. More is not better. It is just more. And in this case it is ultimately death to both our civil society and our planet. I am requesting 3 books, I will keep one to lend and use to proselytize. The other two will be sent to Bill Maher and Bill Nye, the science guy, respectively. They are both individuals with a platform to make a difference. I will attempt to deliver these in person, as I live near both, but if I am unsuccessful with a personal attempt, I will deliver them via the U.S. Mail. Also I would like to request a pdf of the book, so I can deliver it through email. If you have better use for the books, I understand. I applauded what you are doing and hope that the world can truly change. The result of unchecked growth in population will destroy this beautiful planet. And cause unimaginable suffering and death for all living, both people, and animals. It does not have to happen.” He was sent 3 books.
