Is The World Full Yet?

Is The World Full Yet?

For more information about this book please click on the image of the cover

A layman’s look at that immense problem confronting the world – the problem of continual population increase on a planet that is FINITE in size.


I have put this book together in an effort to raise awareness of the looming problems that are facing us.

Why is there so little talk about this subject?

“It’s all too hard” “I’m alright Jack!
“She’’ll be right”
“I can’t do anything” “Tell it to Africa!”

 Is it possible that the words, the logic and the arithmetic in this book could become a catalyst for change?
Is it possible it could create a momentum – a momentum for POPULATION PARITY?

In an endeavour to encourage this momentum I have mailed a free copy of the book to all of the educators, print journalists, columnists, politicians, radio commentators, and activists that come to mind – irrespective of their political views. The list is in alphabetical order except that where one person has suggested another, then that person’s name is indented. For example David Attenborough replied with a suggestion that I should contact ‘Population Matters’ in London and Mark O’Connor suggested Michael Stenford. Comments from those who have acknowledged receiving the gift are shown in RED. This is the list so far:

But I need a lot more names and addresses of people who could have an interest in helping to build a conversation – a momentum to cut through the fog of indifference and prejudice.

Can you help with suggestions?

If so, please drop me an email with the names of people with influence who may benefit from getting a copy of this book.
