Excerpt

The people problem—how a growing
population makes everything harder,
for Australia and the world

This book was born of surprise and anger. Surprise that for so many years I had been ignorant of the growing danger to everything I love, and anger that it had taken me so long to recognise it. At an age when most people contemplate retiring, it inspired me to start educating myself about some very important subjects. What follows is what I have learned, but it is far from the full story and at best I can only offer the observations of a newly informed amateur.

One of the formulas to my success in life is to ask the advice of people who really know what they are talking about. In this case I have sought the opinions of some of the smartest minds in the world, and have benefited from the wisdom of those who in many cases have spent their professional lifetime investigating complex subjects. All I can add is a small measure of commonsense and a dose of scepticism. I hope it will encourage you to embark on an exploration of your own.
