New Book Takes on Overpopulation & What We Can Do to Solve It

Man Swarm: How Overpopulation is Killing the Wild World


San Francisco, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 02/13/2015 --Why has talking about overpopulation been so taboo?

Why do many still believe that the world's population is not a problem, when it has continued to explode?

Why is it time to bring overpopulation back to the forefront as a serious issue the world needs to solve?

More people are talking about these questions and writing about overpopulation today. Books like Countdown by Alan Weisman go into it in depth--but over 500 pages worth—more than the average person is likely to read. Books like The Sixth Extinction by Elizabeth Kolbert, discuss the results of overpopulation, yet does not use the word 'overpopulation' – once.

What's been needed? A book that takes overpopulation straight on and educates the masses in an accessible way about why we need to care about it for ourselves and future generations.

In a tight under-200 pages, the newly released, Man Swarm: How Overpopulation is Killing the Wild World is that book.

Man Swarm:

- Lays out how the overpopulation explosion is still with us
- Smartly challenges those who don't believe overpopulation is real
- Shows that overpopulation is solvable
- Gives tangible ways we can all be part of the solution

This book is for all who care about the future of America and the planet so they will not only understand but accept the truths of overpopulation and population growth, and be stirred to take action.
