Tell us about Eight Billion Reasons Population Matters.

Have you been wondering why our environmental progress has been so disappointing?

Eight Billion Reasons Population Matters connects the dots and takes an in-depth and eye-opening look at our planet’s greatest threat, that of too many people depleting the Earth’s resources and contributing towards climate change.  While the book provides plenty of facts and data, it does so much more.

It reaches us at an emotional level, inviting us to consider what we are destroying and to mourn the loss we are inflicting upon ourselves and all other life-forms. With this book, my hope is for readers to finally understand how simple the way forward to sustainability can be.

What inspired you to write Eight Billion Reasons Population Matters?

Never before have so many people been so misinformed about something as important and urgent as population. It is my aim to remedy this failure.

As you read this book, the realization sets in that the long and good fights by environmental and world aid groups are all for naught as every gain is soon overwhelmed by the pressures of more growth.

It becomes evident that after decades of dire warnings and scientific findings, we must finally confront the myths and taboos that are holding us back from addressing our population crisis. This book is an urgent call for action because I believe that every child deserves a fair start in life, and every species has a right to survive.

How did your background and experience influence your writing?

In high school, my teacher was discussing Paul Ehrlich’s book, The Population Bomb, and that was a light-bulb moment for me. Suddenly everything started to make sense – revealing that all the poverty, extinction of species, climate disruptions, and depletion of our old growth forests were linked to overpopulation.

I realized that most of the world’s suffering and environmental destruction was unnecessary and I decided to be part of the movement to shape a more sustainable future. At that time, I started working on environmental issues, and in 1994, I won the Canadian Volunteer Award for my efforts.

If you could leave readers with one message to walk away with, what would that be?

This book is a crash course on the population crisis. It is a trove of information both for novices and those who have had a long-standing interest in the issue. This book is also part of another important focus: Public Education. It was designed for both the lay audience and the education system. It is easy to get depressed when considering the looming implications of human over-population, so the many solutions and success stories included are well worth reading for those who feel that there is no way out of our global predicament.
