How Can Planet Earth Sustain Its Population?

The world has just hit a new population number: 7 billion people live on the planet. Is this number sustainable?

The book Growing Pains: A Planet in Distress takes an in-depth and eye-opening look at the Earth’s greatest threat, that of too many people living on one small planet. Growing Pains is a provocative and critically acclaimed book that addresses rampant population growth, as it points us toward a path to sustainability. When you read this compelling book, the realization sets in that the long and good fights by our environmentalists, anti-poverty groups and world aid groups are all for naught, as every gain is soon overwhelmed by the pressures of more population growth.

The time has come to expose the myths and taboos that are holding us back from addressing this critical issue threatening our planet. This award-winning book is a brave and rare effort to demystify the population puzzle, and it takes positive action toward reaching a population level that is sustainable.
