John Feeny, Ph.D., Interview12/02/2009 Duration: 55min
February is Global Population Speak Out Month! John Feeney, Ph.D., writes about the fundamental drivers and historical underpinnings of the global ecological crisis. His work has appeared in publications including the BBC's Green Room, The Guardian, PeopleAndPlanet.net, and The Oil Drum. Informed by a deep ecology perspective, John explores such topics as human overpopulation and the root causes of today's environmental problems. Worthy of headlines, such topics are instead underreported in the media. John works to help change that. His current project is the Global Population Speak Out, a grassroots effort to bring new, respected voices to the problem of overpopulation, helping to weaken the taboo currently suppressing discussion of this crucial issue.For more information go to: http://gpso.wordpress.com/

This revelatory information transformed my understanding of everything I had known, or thought I knew up to that point. Working further with this contact revealed ever more information but also much deception and betrayal followed which damaged many good people. Since 2000 I have been the dog with the proverbial bone, chewing through masses of research, first in an attempt to understand just what and who it was I and others had upset so much and second, to understand and integrate all the areas which work as one to retard the empowerment of the individual.
