Psychologists and the problem of population growth: Reply to Bridgeman (2017).

Devine-Wright P, Carrico A, Swim JK, Steg L, Clayton S, Bonnes M
Bridgeman (2017) describes the important role of population growth in contributing to environmental problems. The present essay argues that population is an important component of human impact on the environment, but it must be considered in combination with consumption rates. A place-based approach, examining the local context for reproductive decisions, is necessary to assess population growth as a contributor to environmental impact and to develop appropriate behavioral interventions.
