In Earth for All, a renowned collective of scientists and economists from across the globe unveil a compelling vision for our future. Building upon the revelations of The Limits to Growth, which rocked the world five decades ago, they now confront the stark reality: we stand precariously on the precipice of a global crisis.
Within the pages, the authors present a roadmap for change, proposing five key shifts that can lead humanity toward shared prosperity while respecting the limits of our planet. However, their argument that unequal resource distribution is driving our environmental crises, rather than overpopulation, is very misleading. Read more about our statement on the report here.
This will be an engaging discussion delving into the links between population dynamics, sustainable development, and economic systems.
Population Connection member Susan N. is a lot of things: retired teacher and lawyer, gardener, and art history fanatic. She is also childfree by choice, a title she’s particularly proud to have, one that led her to become a member of Population Connection.
Susan made the “population connection” as a young teen, crediting The Population Bomb for highlighting the interconnections between rapid population growth and resource availability. After graduating high school, Susan became a lawyer and then a teacher. Transitioning between professions, Susan taught Civil Procedure at Santa Clara University before spending eight years in the Czech Republic teaching English. She reflects on her experience abroad: “During most of my life, we thought the Iron Curtain would never be lifted and that the Soviet Union would exist forever. All that changed in the late 80s and early 90, so I thought that was a really historic moment. In retrospect, it was, because, for one thing, Czechs invited people in, such as myself, to teach English, and I was given a work visa. It was a historic window of opportunity.”
It wasn’t until years later that Susan stumbled across Population Connection and learned that Paul Ehrlich was a cofounder. Intrigued, she thought, “Well isn’t that interesting, there is a group working on the issue of [rapid population growth] which coincides with my interests. So I signed up!”Learn More about Susan & Other Wonderful Members Here!
