We envision a world where no one suffers in dire poverty and misery for lack of enough food, water, and other basic needs. We see a world where all species thrive and where lower consumption and population are in balance with Earth’s finite resources.
We alert, inform and educate that overpopulation is a root cause of resource depletion, species extinction, and rising poverty. To avoid more misery, catastrophe, and death, we advocate and support a smaller, truly sustainable population.
We present our message through public presentations and conferences, appointments with elected officials, written articles, our web site, newsletter, media interviews, and advertisements.
World Population Balance members come from across the political spectrum. Many members are strongly pro-life and others are pro-choice. We respectfully agree to disagree about many issues, including abortion, in order to focus time and energy on achieving a sustainable global population.
Each of us needs to be a good steward of the Earth and its resources. We need to come together as a global community to bring about sustainable population in a humane and intelligent manner. We could reach this truly sustainable population of one to two billion people by having fewer births (no abortions) during the next hundred years.
Some Americans are knowledgeable and concerned about overpopulation. And some disbelieve the facts. It is our experience that many people have never given a thought to the seriousness and magnitude of the overpopulation issue. We are primarily interested in educating these tens of millions who lack basic awareness and understanding of the facts.
Past and present members of the Advisory Board of World Population Balance include: Dr. Norman Borlaug, Nobel Peace laureate and "father" of The Green Revolution; Sister Mary Zirbes, retired from the Office of Social Justice of the Archdiocese of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota; and Dr. Tom Hale, medical missionary in Nepal.
World Population Balance has hosted conferences and other events that feature internationally known experts on the population stabilization issue. These expert speakers document the critical problems caused by human overpopulation: increasing misery, suffering, and poverty of hundreds of millions; rapid declines in key resources; and massive increases in species extinction throughout the planet.
Believing strongly in democracy, liberty, and individual freedom, members of World Population Balance oppose any coercive population control measures.
