In a paper from The Post Carbon Reader Series: Population, William N. Ryerson talks about the world’s growing population, and how this affects our way of life, our food supply, our very planet.
Titled “Population: The Multiplier of Everything Else,” Ryerson shows the links between population growth and economic development, discusses the “birth dearth” myth, and suggests solutions.
“One thing is certain: The planet and its resources are finite, and it cannot support an infinite population of humans or any other species. A second thing is also certain: The issue of population is too important to avoid just because it is controversial.”
William Ryerson is founder and president of Population Media Center and president of the Population Institute.
