Overdevelopment, Overpopulation, Overshoot

Photo by Chris Jordan
Dead Cormorant
This photograph was taken on Midway Atoll, in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.   It shows an Albatross, dead from ingesting too much plastic, and decaying on the beach.   It is a common sight on the remote island.   The photo appears in a new book entitled 'Overdevelopment, Overpopulation, Overshoot', published by Global Population Speakout.   All of the hundreds of photos that appear in the book can be seen online by Googling the book's title.      The caption accompanying the photo above was taken from the Bible: Ecclesiastes 3:19... 'Surely the fate of human beings is like that of the animals - the same fate awaits them both, as one dies, so dies the other.   All have the same breath'.
