Beskrivelse

The global population in early 2023 already exceeded 8 billion. This represents a population increase of near 6 billion people since the end of World War II. Assume that most of us want to eat healthy meals, raise families, have a place to call our own and enjoy a reasonably peaceful retirement. How is this possible when more of our agricultural land is disappearing because of urbanisation, when climate change is reducing agricultural output, when more of our drinking water is contaminated and when our soil is becoming more toxic? Were you ever concerned how the loss of habitats could affect the planet's biodiversity and how the ongoing destruction of our forests, the melting of glaciers and ice caps, the depletion of our huge aquifers and the extinctions of many species, including our pollinators, would affect life on earth? Oil, gas and many minerals are harder to get to while at the same time the demand for it keeps increasing. What causes overpopulation, how will it affect us and what can we do to ensure that planet earth will also be here to provide for us tomorrow? If these topics and related are of interest to you, then you should read this book.
