There are thousands of essays, articles and books dealing with population but “Overdevelopment, Overpopulation, Overshoot” provides a convincing new way of understanding the impacts of population size on human welfare and nature. Through well-chosen quotes, and stunning photographs, this largely visual presentation documents the realities and role of burgeoning human numbers on a broad variety of important areas including the destruction of wildlife and natural systems, air and water pollution, food insecurity and climate change.
This consequential book should be read by political leaders, development planners, and the public to bring about an end to the current neglect of voluntary family planning. As Nobel laureate Henry W. Kendall noted “If we do not voluntarily bring population growth under control in the next one or two decades, nature will do it for us in the most brutal way, whether we like it or not.”
There are many ways to participate! Together, we can raise awareness and bring about change.
