CSU Professor to Speak about Population, Consumption Issues

Phil Cafaro, professor of philosophy at Colorado State University, will be speaking and signing copies of “Life on the Brink” at 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 16, at Old Firehouse Books, 232 Walnut St., in Old Town Fort Collins.

Cafaro is among the two dozen contributors to “Life on the Brink,” which aspires to reignite a robust discussion of population issues among environmentalists, environmental studies scholars, policymakers, and the general public. Hailing from a range of disciplines and offering varied perspectives, these essays hold in common a commitment to sharing resources with other species and a willingness to consider what will be necessary to do so. In defense of nature and of a vibrant human future, contributors confront hard issues regarding contraception, abortion, immigration, and limits to growth.
