“The populations within these wildfire regimes are increasing so rapidly that forest management becomes almost impossible."Zachary Zobel, a climate scientist who studies wildfires at the Woodwell Climate Research Center

Young Activists and Environmental Activists Want Population Stabilization
We commissioned the highly regarded firm Lake Research Partners to conduct two national surveys this past summer. We sought to determine how 18–35-year-old progressive activists and environmental activists of all ages view the population issue.
The results were quite encouraging and may help dispel the myth that people these days don’t care about population growth. With today’s endless torrent of news and information (and misinformation), it’s good to know that engaged citizens want to take action on behalf of population stabilization.
