Population Decline is the Solution, says Filmmaker
Today’s Talk Back guest argues that humankind is suffering from an insatiable need for growth. Documentary filmmaker Dave Gardner isn’t afraid to take on a variety of touchy subjects and says we’re attached to “superstitions and addictions” that we need to leave behind in order to have a sustainable society.
Gardner promises to challenge the assumptions of “economists, developers, the Pope, politicians, octomoms, wealthy capitalists, environmentalists, people who leave the lights on, and well . . . pretty much anybody.” What do you think? Is Gardner right? Gardner will be with Peter and Jon on the Talk Back show Thursday July 19th. Tell us what you think.
