  1. We read a few things about population in the Environmental Politics Reading Group last year, I’ll see if I can find them. Looking forward to the rest of these readings/listenings.

    • These are the readings we looked at: http://environmentalpoliticsresearchgroup.wordpress.com/2011/05/24/population-bombers/

      It was a very thought-provoking discussion which in part due to the dynamics of the group that day centered largely on gender politics, education for women, and the issue of developed world/developing world differences in population. One of the group members who had spent time in China also spoke favorably about the one-child policy there. There was plenty of thought-provoking material in the readings which we didn’t get to discuss so I’d be happy to look at them again, or we could use them as a basis to find other readings/listenings etc.
