Elephants in the Volkswagen : facing the tough questions about our overcrowded country by Lindsey Grant( Book )

In the last century, the United States has grown from 75 million people to 250 million. Have we gone too far' How can an optimum population be identified and achieved, and how can we confront the problems now facing our overcrowded country' The Negative Population Growth group put these questions to specialists on the environment, food and energy supplies, urban issues, national defense, labor and other areas directly affected by U.S. demographics. The result is Elephants in the Volkswagen--a unique, multifaceted examination of one of the most pervasive and controversial issues facing our nation's policymakers
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 1,005 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 720 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
