A Community’s Optimal Population Size

July 1, 2007 • Daily Email Recap

Thanks to Bob Fireovid for the email and document below.

Hi, Bill.

I really enjoy your e-mail updates and news items. Thank you so much for
sending them.

Advocates for a Sustainable Albemarle Population (ASAP), a well organized
group in Charlottesville, VA, is asking their County Board of Supervisors
to help underwrite a study that would recommend an optimal population size
for their community (see attached).

To my knowledge, this is the first ever such effort anywhere; and so it’s
very important to help these folks do this study well. In my humble
opinion, all advocates for a sustainable U.S. population need to have a
success to build on; and this ASAP effort may be our best shot at such. In
other words, we will all benefit by helping ASAP as best we can.

Please help us ask population control leaders to help link ASAP with
resources that can help them do this study. Thank you very much.

– Bob
