Many scholars, writers, activists and policy-makers have linked growth in population to environmental degradation, especially catastrophic climate change. In the last few years, however, a number of writers and academics have documented significant improvements in human well-being, pointing to longer lifespans, improved health, abundant resources and a general improvement in the environment.
Population Bombed!: Exploding the Link Between Overpopulation and Climate Change, addresses the main shortcomings of arguments advanced by both population control advocates and optimistic writers, explaining how economic prosperity and a cleaner environment are the direct results of both population growth and humanity’s increased use of fossil fuels. The book also shows how campaigns against the spread of fossil fuels will cause misery in the developing world, fuel poverty in advanced economies, and will inevitably wreak havoc on the natural world.
