ACTIONS YOU CAN TAKE
Vermonters for a Sustainable Population was formed in 2005 by
a group of Vermont residents who are very concerned about the
population-driven environmental degradation taking place in Vermont
--- the fastest in the developed world---is leading to sprawl,
congestion and excessive use of energy and other natural resources.
In Vermont, we are seeing the same phenomenon, driven in part
by a large influx of people moving here to escape urban areas
of the country that are becoming increasingly overcrowded, ugly
and impersonal. We believe that American people need to acknowledge
and discuss the population issue, and take steps that will lead
to a sustainable population.
We are an all-volunteer,grassroots organization. Please take a look at the information on this website, and if you want to help make a difference, please contact us to join in our educational mission.
Inform yourself about the issue. The population issue can be a complex and emotional issue that can be hard to comprehend. A good book that puts it all in fairly simple, easy to understand terms, is The Population Fix: Breaking America’s Addiction to Population Growth by Edward Hartman and published by Think Population Press. Free copies are available by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
