Pop­u­la­tion cri­sis

The Australian - - COMMENTARY -

The re­cent plea from sci­en­tists for global ac­tion on pop­u­la­tion growth and emis­sions, is a plea that dis­ap­pears from me­dia at­ten­tion far too quickly.

The ex­tent of en­vi­ron­men­tal dam­age from emis­sions may still be de­bat­able, but the dis­as­ter await­ing us from over­pop­u­la­tion is not. There is no coun­try in the world that should not be plan­ning for pop­u­la­tion re­duc­tion. Our in­sti­tu­tions are manned by peo­ple with the col­lec­tive vi­sion of a dung beetle, and this must change. Wil­liam Maple­ston, Ash­grove, Qld
