Too Many People? Population, Immigration, and the Environmental Crisis
Provides a clear, well-documented, and popularly written refutation of the idea that “overpopulation” is a major cause of environmental destruction, arguing that a focus on human numbers not only misunderstands the causes of the crisis, but dangerously weakens the movement for real solutions. Challenges modern overpopulation theory clearly and comprehensively, providing invaluable insights for activists and environmental scholars alike.
