Number 5 in Northwest Environment Watch’s series of short, hard-hitting books on creating a sustainable society.From the Back Cover:
Misplaced Blame: The Real Roots of Population Growth argues that much of the population growth overrunning parts of North America originates not from large families or swarms of illegal immigrants. Instead, it springs from five rarely-noted root causes: poverty, sexual abuse, underfunded family planning services, subsidies to domestic migration, and ill-guided immigration policy.
Along the way, Misplaced Blame uncovers one shocking revelation after another: --The population of the Pacific Northwest is increasing almost 50 percent faster than global population. --83% of American teen mothers come from poor families. --62% of teen mothers have been raped or molested as children. --36% of babies born in the Northwest are conceived by accident. --Long-distance moving is subsidized by taxpayers, sometimes by as much as $23,000. --Excessively high national immigration quotas hurt both the North American poor and immigrants' home countries.
Read Misplaced Blame and you'll see that when we take care of people, population growth will take care of itself.
