This is the first book published in Australia that argues the ‘heretical’ view that Australia is overpopulated, and that government plans to increase our population by another 40 per cent by 2050 are irresponsible folly.
Mark O’connor and William Lines show why it is necessary to cap Australia’s population growth, and that it is possible to do this without policies that are inuhumane towards families and immigrants.
Overloading Australia is now in its third reprint. Thanks to a generous donation by entrepreneur Dick Smith, copies have been sent to all Australian politicians – federal, state and local.
In a score of punchy chapters the authors challenge the myths, expose the facts, and dent the denial industry. They blow the whistle on population policies that lead to clogged roads, water shortages, unaffordable housing and no place for refugees; then provide new and fair ways to think about the issues and to limit Australia’s future population size.
