For our May 25 online book club we'll discuss the classic THE POPULATION BOMB, by Paul R. and Anne Ehrlich (Ballantine Books, 1968). You need not have attended a previous discussion to join us for this one. We'll discuss the book until about 8:30, followed by open conversation.
The Zoom link to the discussion is posted on the right, visible to those who RSVP. You will need a computer, laptop, smartphone or other device with internet access. It's pretty easy; if you're curious, check out https://zoom.us/. We'll be available from 6:50 on to help anyone who might need extra time to connect. If you can't get on, call us at[masked]. We hope to "see" you there!
If you'd like to read ahead: for our June 22 meeting, we'll discuss WE ARE THE WEATHER: SAVING THE PLANET BEGINS AT BREAKFAST, by Jonathan Safran Foer.
--------------------------------------------- In 1968, the best-seller THE POPULATION BOMB, written by Paul and Anne Ehrlich (but credited solely to Paul) warned of the perils of overpopulation: mass starvation, societal upheaval, environmental deterioration. The book was criticized at the time for painting an overly dark picture of the future. But while not all of the Ehrlichs' dire predictions have come to pass, the world’s population has doubled since then, to over seven billion, straining the planet’s resources and heating up our climate. Can the earth continue to support an ever-increasing number of humans? The authors clearly describe our crisis in all respects--air, food, water, birth control, death control, and environmental impact. They also provide a realistic evaluation of our remaining options.
