The Overpopulation Podcast
About This Show
Overpopulation is the main driver of resource depletion, dire poverty, climate change, and species extinction. The good news: overpopulation is solvable humanely through dramatically reducing birthrates. In this show we'll make the connections between overpopulation and the many vexing issues of the day. And we'll promote smaller families to achieve a sustainable population and create a more resilient future.

Can We Live the Good Life Sustainably?
Can 7.6 billion or more people live sustainably and happily on the planet? Can we avoid the sensitive topic of choosing smaller families simply by eating less meat, taking public transportation and turning the thermostat down in winter and up in summer? The World Population Balance staff kicks this subject around in response to a study that concluded resource use would need to decline by a factor of two to six times for all the world’s people to live well within planetary boundaries.
