Full house : reassessing the earth's population carrying capacity by Lester R Brown( Book )

19 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and Japanese and held by 1,032 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After decades of steady growth, the world's food supply is no longer keeping up with population increases. These are the findings in this fourth volume in the Worldwatch Environmental Alert series from the Worldwatch Institute." According to Lester Brown and Hal Kane, the world's farmers can no longer be counted on to feed adequately the projected additions to our numbers. Achieving a humane balance between food and people now depends more on family planners than on farmers. "In this volume, the authors propose a global strategy to restore food security and a budget to implement it. Their global food security budget calls for stepped-up expenditures on both sides of the food/population equation. It includes investments not only to provide family planning services to all who want them, but also to eliminate the underlying causes of high fertility, such as female illiteracy. It also includes investments in an extensive reforestation and soil conservation effort, one that will arrest the deterioration of the agricultural resource base."--Jacket

"In Triumph of the Mundane, Hal Kane offers a unique assessment of how and why our day-to-day lives have changed, and considers the wide-ranging impacts of those changes. Using a variety of indicators of behavior - distances between family members, the things we own, the pace of our lives - he traces recent social transformations and considers the questions that leaders and policymakers must address if they are to reinvigorate our public discourse so that it can improve the quality of our lives."--Jacket
