Read the book that helped inspire the launch of the Stable Population Party.
The press of numbers on this continent affects us all - those living, as well as those yet to be born. To talk of saving the environment or of climate change is meaningless if we won’t address population - a subject some think too hot for public debate. In a score of punchy chapters, authors Mark O’Connor (appointed as Olympic Games Poet for the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games) and William Lines challenge the myths, expose the facts, and dent the denial industry.
The authors blow the whistle on population-foolish policies that lead to clogged roads, water shortages, scarce food, and no place for refugees; then provide new and fair ways to think about the issues and to limit Australia’s future population size.
This is a book that is revolutionising the green debate, and the political debate, on population.
