Item #d95sep4

"Global and U.S. National Population Trends," C. Haub (Population Reference Bureau Inc., Washington, D.C.), Consequences, 1(2), 2-11, Summer 1995.

An extensive review analyzing why the world population has increased so rapidly in recent years, what it will do in the future, and the expected environmental and other impacts of the present dramatic increase. Regardless of any changes in fertility rates, world population will at least double to 12 billion or more, before it stabilizes in the middle of the next century. Contrasts the situation in the U.S. and in developing countries. Anticipated changes in population loom large as the backdrop against which today's policy choices are to be made.

Item #d95sep5

"Population, Consumption Patterns and Climate Change: A Socioeconomc Perspective from the South," J.K. Parikh (Gandhi Inst. Develop. Res., Gen. Vaidya Marg, Goregaon (East), Bombay 500 065, India), J.P. Painuly, Ambio, 23(7), 434-437, Nov. 1994.

Puts into proper perspective the linkages among population, consumption patterns and climate change. Local environmental problems should have higher priority than global environmental problems, but a tradeable emissions quota system for greenhouse gases constitutes an efficient and socially just mechanism for tackling both.
