It’s time to talk about Earth’s unsustainable population growth
Population. Consumption. A balance of both is critical to a planet marked by better human health, economic prosperity and a flourishing natural world.
Earth Overshoot recognizes that duality and works not only to bring our human numbers back into balance with nature but also to draw attention to the overconsumption of our planet's limited resources. We aspire to be champions for a sustainable, safer, less crowded and more just world.
Joe Biden's desire for short-term economic prosperity undercuts his vision for long-term planetary health and serves as the perfect example of the dilemma presented by our reliance on fossil fuels in the face of unsustainable population growth.
If we are to ever have a sustainable planet, it will be by focusing on the bigger picture of unsustainable population growth and not the myriad of environmental, social and economic crises it creates.
