Whatever happened to "Zero Population Growth?" This term was used during the late 60's and 70's in every discussion about preserving the planet, but I haven't heard any of our leaders use the term in years. Just as we need to look at multiple ways to generate clean power, we also need to look at multiple ways to reduce the stress we place on our planet. Zero population growth should be a serious part of that discussion. Do we avoid this discussion out of fear of offending the religous right and our consumer society advocates? Since most of the growth in population is coming from non European-based cultures, do we risk being called racist for suggesting all cultures are responsible for reducing population growth?
