‘Population explosion’ nothing to fear?

Leave a comment

Population growth is one compelling topics that we’ve often touched on and sometimes posted about… Here a link to Danny Dorling’s take on a future global population of 10 billion:

‘Do not be frightened that our population is forecast to rise to 10 billion – it may not, and even if it does there is more than enough to go round. It is only the richest billion who are consuming too much and, just as most of us do not emulate the most affluent of a century ago, there is no need to believe people in a century’s time will have the playthings the rich have today.’

p.s. We can talk in early July about future readings and dates – Katherine is going to  launch a doodle calendar to find a suitable date to meet
