"Our role now is to take responsible, practical steps to bring the role of overpopulation to light..."
We need a shift of consciousness in this country and a dynamic change of policy to deal with the perils of rapidly escalating population numbers and unnecessary consumption. Nothing less than the fate of our natural world and the future of civilization itself are at stake.
Whole ecosystems are disappearing due to habitat loss and climate change brought on by human impact. Not enough natural resources exist to support current population and economic growth, even if viable alternative energy technologies are developed.
Population has been the unspoken provocation in discussions of instability around the world -- environmental devastation, loss of biological diversity, economic downturns, wars, food shortages, and infectious disease - and our role now is to take responsible, practical steps to bring the role of overpopulation to light and to slow and reduce population numbers.
