The Depopulation Bomb

Almost 50 years ago Dr. Paul Ehrlich published a book called The Population Bomb. Today, demographic hysteria concerns too few people.

Theme: Ironic demographics

Subject Article: "Are People Really Leaving Illinois In Droves?"

Other Links: 1. "The Rachel Carson Homestead."
2. "The Unrealized Horrors of Population Explosion."
3. "Redemptive existentialism and Berkeleian metaphysics: a synthesis in Beckett’s plays."
4. "Where does Chicken Little invest?"

Postscript: The population bomb never went off. The population bomb never existed. The same is true about the depopulation bomb. Population change is neither a metric of success, nor is it a useful policy goal.
