The No-Nonsense Guide to World Population


Manufacturer: New Internationalist

Product Information


"How many people can the planet sustain? With world population reaching 7 billion and predicted to exceed 9 billion by 2050 we are in the grip of a panic about human numbers. But is this panic justified or is it a fear tactic being used to support other agendas?
This timely No-Nonsense Guide looks at what the numbers really mean, exploding some widely believed myths along the way. It analyzes all the factors that make up this complex and divisive subject, such as ageing populations, migration, scarcity of resources, women's rights, climate change and family planning. In doing so, Vanessa Baird challenges the narrow focus on 'how many people' and suggests it could be one of our biggest mistakes."
Vanessa Baird. New Internationalist, 2011.
