Overloading Australia, How government and media dither and deny on population.
Authors: Mark O'Connor and William Lines
This is the book that put the skids under “big Australia” --- and starts the debate on what size we should grow to.
The press of numbers on this continent affects us all – those living, as well as those yet to be born. To talk of saving the environment or of climate change is meaningless if we won’t address population growth, and take on those who profit by it. In a score of punchy chapters, authors Mark O’Connor and William Lines challenge the myths, expose the facts, and dent the denial industry.
They blow the whistle on population-foolish policies that lead to clogged roads, water shortages, scarce food, and no place for refugees; then provide new and fair ways to think about the issues and to limit Australia’s future population-size.
