Why, when every problem facing humanity, from poverty to violent conflict over resources, is exacerbated by a ballooning human population, is the demographic explosion ignored by policymakers and the media?
Why, when every problem facing nature, including ecosystem loss, species extinctions, and climate chaos, is caused by human overpopulation, is the root of the problem mostly ignored by the global environmental movement?
Isn’t it time to start talking about the equation that matters most to the future of people and the planet? Overpopulation + Overdevelopment = Overshoot
In 2015, a book as large and dramatic as the topic it covers, Overdevelopment, Overpopulation, Overshoot (OVER) will ignite that conversation around the world. In an exhibit-format treatment with provocative photos from across the globe, OVER moves beyond insider debates and tired old arguments (yes, population numbers AND consumption both matter). Framed by essays by population experts, the heart of OVER is a series of photo essays illuminating the depth of the damage that human numbers and behavior have caused to the Earth—and which threatens humanity’s future.
