Population Vs Environment

“I think the backlash is building up, but it’s nothing to do with Geoffrey Blainey or Pauline Hanson or that rubbish. It’s all about this country’s carrying capacity. And people know in their bones that we’re a very different proposition than the continent of North America. They know we’re environmentally vulnerable and I think they’re very, very skeptical about this consensus business view, this boardroom view that, Oh Treasurer, we’ve gotta build the population.”

— Bob Carr on The Social Impact of the Population Boom, 7.30 Report, ABC1, 28 January, 2010
