Background:

Rapid population growth is like the 600-pound moose in the room. Or maybe it's like high blood pressure — the silent killer. Or maybe it's like the proverbial frog in the jar of slowly heating water. Whatever analogy you compare population with, one thing is for certain — it is the number one issue facing our civilization and planet, yet it's the one issue that is rarely discussed.

In May 2009, world population hit a shocking 6.8 billion. At this growth rate we are adding nearly 80 million people to the planet each year, which is similar to adding the population of Germany to the earth annually.

If we are to achieve a more sustainable future, addressing the root causes of environmental degradation — including resource overconsumption, social justice, women's issues, and population growth — is paramount.

Join us for a presentation of the Sierra Club's Global Population & Environment Program, which has addressed population since the 1960s. We will explore the problem and offer positive solutions, which will help make our future more peaceful and sustainable.
