National Newsletters

SPA Newsletter 130 - Dec 2017

In this issue you will find a report on the ‘second warning to humanity’ by over 15,000 scientists, a similar one to that issued in 1992 but more serious as the situation is now worse.

There is also the summary of the Australian Population Research Institute (TAPRI) study that finds Australians are tired of the population ponzi. You can read how Dick Smith is ramping up his fight on the population issue.

There are four book reviews and obituaries of two very-much-missed SPA members, as well as branch news.
