Most scientists agree the current level of human population, in combination with present living arrangements, is damaging our ecosystems. But doing something about overpopulation is not high on public policy lists. It’s rarely discussed in the media or over coffee with friends. Why? Population Media Center President Bill Ryerson discusses the obstacles preventing faster progress on solving the overpopulation problem, or even admitting there is one. This is the second part of an April 2017 interview. Bill Ryerson has worked in the reproductive health and population arena for 47 years. He founded Population Media Center in 1998. He’s also Chairman and CEO of The Population Institute in Washington, DC. More information about Conversation Earth at
