As is evident from my frequent emails to this list, and blog postings, population is a subject of great interest to many journalists and other writers – even if many get the story wrong. Attached is a new fact sheet from Population Action International focused on disabusing people of the notion that rapid population growth is no longer a problem.
Thanks to Tod Preston for providing this very useful item. If you see an article on population that misses the mark on factual content, send the author – and the editor – a copy of this fact sheet.
