In the last century, the United States has grown from 75 million people to 250 million.

How many Americans? : population, immigration and the environment by Leon F Bouvier( Book )

6 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 998 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Analyzing current and projected rates of fertility, mortality and migration, Bouvier and Grant forecast various population scenarios and conclude that low fertility rates alone will not solve our population problem. They recommend lower immigration levels to achieve environmental sustainability in the twenty-first century. Arguing with compassion and concern for the less fortunate in other countries, the authors point out ways the United States could support population-reducing policies abroad and promote the empowerment of women in decisions affecting family size. At the same time, they urge Americans to act responsibly toward our own future, here, at home. In the increasingly heated debate over immigration, the reasoned, unflinching, progressive voice of How Many Americans? is sure to play a pivotal role

Juggernaut : growth on a finite planet by Lindsey Grant( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 715 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lindsey Grant examines the human condition as population and consumption levels approach the edges of the Earth's ability to support them. The book is a unique synopsis of the interactions among population, food production, the energy transition, air pollution and climate change, technology, trade policies, productivity and unemployment. It describes the different ways that the current population explosion plays out in the poorest countries, the "emerging" countries and the old industrial nations - and shows how they will shape each other's future. It relates that growth to U.S. policies on foreign affairs, agriculture, trade, immigration, unemployment and health care, and proposes some specific changes in thinking and policies."--Jacket

This scholarly compendium presents a collection of writings on the subject of population change, its consequences and the impact of human crowding on the future of mankind.--From publisher description
The collapsing bubble : growth and fossil energy by Lindsey Grant( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A courageous look at the world's dwindling energy resources. Contending that the energy debate has been cast in the wrong terms, Grant suggests that the problem would not be solved by asking: "What energy sources will be available to replace fossil fuels?' but by questioning: "What populations can be supported at a decent standard by the energy sources that will be available after the transition from fossil fuels?' Taking a brave stand, Grant suggests that with a bit of luck-we may be able to create a more harmonious balance with the rest of the biosphere, but at much lower population levels and less consumptive habits

The cornucopian fallacies by Lindsey Grant( Book )

4 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Futurism is currently divided between two bitterly struggling camps. "Cornucopians" tell of the wonderful future that technology will bring and reassure us that our problems are not serious. "Jeremiads" warn of impending doom if something is not done about the particular problem troubling the futurist. Jeremiads include environmentalists, some (but not all) resource specialists, and those concerned about the rate of population growth. The debate between these two groups was sharpened in 1981 by the U.S. Government publication "The Global Report to the President: Entering the Twenty-First Century" and an article by Julian Simon ("Resources, Population, Environment: An Oversupply of False Bad News") published in "Science," volume 208, June 27, 1980, pages 1431-1437. The thesis of this paper is that there are logical flaws and oversights in the Cornucopians' approach that make the debate fundamentally asymmetrical. The Cornucopians have made assumptions and chose methodologies that simply ignore or dismiss the most critical issues; this has led the Jeremiads to their current concerns. Cornucopian fallacies and the reasoning processes and flaws/omissions characterizing the analyses of Simon and of Herman Kahn are discussed. (Jn)
