I did an event with environmental journalist (and personal hero) Elizabeth Kolbert late last week, in which we discussed various matters related to journalism and climate change. Subsequently, one of the attendees wrote and asked why I hadnít talked about population. Isnít overpopulation the real root of our environmental ills?
Anyone whoís ever given a talk on an environmental subject knows that the population question is a near-inevitability (second only to the nuclear question). I used to get asked about it constantly when I wrote for Grist ó less now, but still fairly regularly.
I thought I would explain, once and for all, why I hardly ever talk about population, and why Iím unlikely to in the future.
