Overpopulation: One Human Race Living On One Planet

We are one human race, rapidly expanding, living on a finite planet. We continue to ignore the problems of overpopulation, overdevelopment and overshoot at our own peril.  As a ‘book champion’, ‘campaign activist’ and ‘campaign friend’ of the Global Population Speakout network, I’m pleased to share these excerpts and resources.  The following article is reproduced from the foreword of Overdevelopment, Overpopulation, Overshoot […]
