Election debates and campaigning carefully avoided facing our unprecedented income inequality, science denial, and the overpopulation crisis, despite the fact that these taboo issues drive most of our other problems.

If you are interested in this issue, please join HFSD for an informative lecture by Dr. Robert Tapp entitled "Those Other Elephants." Unlike most politicians, Dr. Tapp has no qualms about speaking freely about the elephants in the room.
