Post of the Month: Australia’s Population Debate – An Environment Issue?

This month’s post of the month as decided by number of readers was yet again…:

Australia’s New Population Debate: An Environment Issue?

Most of these readers are coming from Google, so it seems there is a strong undercurrent of concern about population and the environment.  Just like the debates coming out about the use of oil in light of the Gulf oil spill, it should draw our decision makers thoughts to the need to look harder at how we live.  Population is increasing, but so is each of our environmental footprints.  We have technology to change this, but we are not using it, not even encouraging its use in a serious way; rather maintaining subsidies and disincentives to change.
