Lord Man – The Call of More

I worry that one of the leading causes of global warming, the world’s exploding population, was largely ignored at the recent climate talks leading up to the Paris Agreement. World leaders seem oblivious to this problem preferring instead to focus on the economic growth and development required to support ever-increasing numbers of people.  In the coming months, I […]
