Humane Population Reduction - The Core Issue That's Being Ignored

"Of all the issues we face, none is more important than population growth," says a National Geographic feature on Population. Many world leaders understand that humanity is at a crisis point concerning the interlocking issues of population pressure, rapidly declining resources, and poverty. For the past 20 years the planet¹s people have been consuming more resources every day than Earth is producing. Currently this overconsumption/overshoot is over 30%. Obviously, this cannot continue, because many vital resources ­ including oil, natural gas, fresh water, arable land and topsoil, ocean fish stocks ­ are declining at alarming rates. David Paxson, founder of World Population Balance, reviews the realities of this overriding mega-issue and discusses what concerned individuals and groups can do to help stabilize and reduce both world and national population -- for the benefit of EVERYONE on the planet. Join us for this highly informative and fast-paced presentation.

    I found the presentation very thought provoking. It is an issue we are all aware of yet don't seem to be come up with a solution. Thanks for the warm welcome and good speaker. I hope to come back.

    David Paxson reminded us that unless the population problem is solved, every other cause is a losing cause. We are past the sustainability point unless we reduce the population humanely, it will happen (and is happening) inhumanely.

    Waste of time. If you say a meeting is going to start at 10AM it should. Time is valuable and I didn't appreciate the inconsideration!

    Sounds interesting, but I will be at a blood drive.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
