You may recall the PMC Daily Email of May 30th, 2013, which featured an essay written by David Paxson and co-authors, Alan Ware, Karen Shragg and Carolyn VandenDolder. It was titled “Regarding Population Messaging, Exactly What’s the Problem: Growth or Overpopulation?“.
Below is a formal response, and it comes from Karen Pitts, vice-chair, Committee for a Sustainable World Population of the Motherlode Chapter of The Sierra Club (serving 24 counties in northern and central California). The CSWP’s mission is “to promote a SUSTAINABLE WORLD POPULATION… to increase awareness of the environmental impacts of population growth and overconsumption of natural resources, and to help improve access to family planning, reproductive health, and sex and environmental education services.” The group offers a speaker’s bureau, and promotes population awareness at public events, fairs, and conferences.
