LA JOLLA, Calif. (PRWEB) April 10, 2015
The author Stanford S. Penner has long been concerned about the world’s alarming population growth, and the economic and sociopolitical effects it may have on the future generations of humanity. In “The Crowded Scene” (published by Xlibris) the author tackles these issues with years of well-founded study and data.
“The Crowded Scene” is an eye-opening read with the central topic that there will be larger and growing demands for food, and all other requirements for human population growths which will be increasingly difficult to meet especially in poorer parts of the world. The book tackles the issue of overpopulation and takes into account the possible effects it would have on humanity and future generations to come.
It is specifically addressed to responsible adults who are concerned about the long-term security and survivability of future generations under livable and pleasant conditions
