Speaking with Paul R. Ehrlich, Greg Stevens delves into the history of population’s role, or lack of role, in environmentalism and how Ehrlich sees the role of population in today’s conversations.

But over time, the public discourse simply wore itself out. The environmental alarmists had no solutions; or at least, they had no solutions that politicians or the media were willing to talk about. America’s attention wandered. By the time the 1980s arrived, environmentalism had fizzled, and what was left of it shifted toward concerns of pollution and regulation. The national conversation about population control was effectively over.
