About this book

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

The world is about to hit a staggering population level of eight billion people living on one small planet. In this provocative and critically acclaimed must-read, Valorie M. Allen dares to connect those very few dots. As you read this book, the realization sets in that the long and good fights by environmental groups and world aid groups are all for nought as every gain is soon overwhelmed by the pressures of more growth.

Eight Billion Reasons Population Matters 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 to climate change. While providing 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 losses we are inflicting upon ourselves and all other life forms.

Never before have so many people been so misinformed about something as important and urgent as population. After decades of dire warnings and scientific findings, it is clear that humankind must finally confront the myths and taboos that are holding us back from addressing our population crisis. This book is a brave and rare effort to demystify the population puzzle and steer us toward a more intentional and promising future, rather than allow human nature to blindly forge a path forward that leaves no space for a healthful existence.

Allen offers a thorough analysis of a world reeling from environmental, social, political, and economic crises; then she goes further to provide a treasure trove of solutions and success stories that we can all take to heart. With this book, the reader finally understands how simple the way forward to sustainability could be.
