In addition to Overdevelopment, Overpopulation, Overshoot, we have had several other population thinkers and authors contact us recently informing PMC of their new population focused publications.
First, Dr. Phil Cafaro, professor of philosophy and faculty member in the School of Global Environmental Sustainability at Colorado State University, has just published his exhaustive effort titled How Many is Too Many? which takes a look at population growth in United States and through story-telling, ethical dialectics and a commitment to progressivism, builds a case to support national population stabilization.
Secondly, Dave Foreman (Rewilding Institute, a founder of Earth First! and The Wildlands Project) has teamed up with Laura Carroll (The Baby Matrix) to produce a second edition of Man Swarm and the Killing of Wildlife. The title enjoys many ringing endorsements, including one from Joyce Johnson, “In the face of the 6th great mass extinction, Man Swarm is a loud cry for help by the silent suffering wildlife as our growing population, with its inevitable consumption, drives them off the face of the earth. Man Swarm gives them a voice so that we can change before it is too late for them… and for us.”
Finally, Dr. Russell Hopfenberg has a new research article published in the Taylor and Francis journal, Biodiversity: The Journal of Life on Earth. Dr. Hopfenberg reviews the theoretical underpinnings of the “classical” Demographic Transition Model, and investigates how human population trends have intermingled with global agricultural productivity measures over time. The full title of the research is: An expansion of the demographic transition model: the dynamic link between agricultural productivity and population.
