Man Swarm


Man Swarm and the Killing of Wildlife
by Dave Foreman

First in the For the Wild Things series

The population bomb did not fizzle.It blew up. It is still blowing up. The numbers read: World population in 1960, 3 billion; today, 7 billion; 2050 9.4 billion. U.S. population: 1960, 179 million; today, 310 million; 2050, 440 million. 

Man Swarm, by Dave Foreman, shows our population explosion is ongoing and is the main driver behind the biodiversity crisis -- mass extinction, scalping wildlands, greenhouse gas pollution -- and he offers bold solutions to our plight.

Dave Foreman has worked as a wilderness conservationist since 1971 with The Wilderness Society and The Nature Conservancy, and from 1982 to 1988 was editor of the Earth First! Journal.
