Tonight on Inquiry we talk with PHILIP CAFARO, Professor of Philosophy at Colorado State University and co-editor of the collection of essays LIFE ON THE BRINK: ENVIRONMENTALISTS CONFRONT OVERPOPULATION. Why have environmentalists stopped talking about the critical problem of overpopulation? The authors in this book feel that the global population explosion coupled with the expectation of perpetual growth is the engine driving almost all environmental problems from extinctions to global climate change. But what can be done about it? My guest tonight has some of the answers and some of them are very controversial. If you care about the state of the global environment, be sure to tune in.
