Population Stabilization

EcoIntelligence sustainability articles, speeches, and interviews.This page displays a collection of environmental and sustainability (green) online videos about population issues. Video topics include population growth, carrying capacity, population stabilization, ecological footprint, quality of life, and more.

As global population increases, it puts heavier demands on the world's finite natural resources. As populations develop, they both industrialize and move up the food chain, and the demands they place on the Earth grow further. There is only so much the Earth can provide, and the evidence is growing that we may already be substantiallly beyond the Earth's carrying capacity. Working to stabilize population is a critical aspect of environmental sustainability.
