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!
