World Population Balance home

 

We alert and educate that overpopulation is a root cause of resource depletion, species extinction, poverty, and climate change. Our mission is to chart a path for human civilization that – rather than causing greater misery – enables good lives on a healthy planet. We advocate and support a smaller, truly sustainable human population – through dramatic and voluntary reduction in birth rates. 

Raise your overpopulation awareness and learn how we can humanely solve overpopulation.

This online community is set up to provide you with the support, connections, and resources to be a more effective sustainable population advocate.

This publication is a collection of short essays and articles by various contributors covering things we need to know and do to chart a sustainable course to a beautiful future. 

Earth's resources are enough to sustain only about 2 to 3 billion people at a European standard of living.

The answer from a 2018 study, "A Good Life for All Within Planetary Boundaries", is a resounding “No.”

For every species other than humans, the biggest environmental issue on Earth is Humanity.

To our knowledge we are the only population organization in the world that candidly promotes all of the following direct yet hopeful and empowering message: (1) The world is significantly overpopulated right now. (2) Overpopulation is Solvable. (3) Successfully solving overpopulation will be an uphill battle. Yet, it is vastly easier than coping with overpopulation's devastating consequences. And we can do it!

 

 

World Population Balance focuses on education of the environmental consequences of United States and world overpopulation, the need to halt exponential population growth, and the need to reduce births in order to achieve a stable, sustainable population.
