About Searle Whitney

In 2011, public policy and population specialist Searle Whitney attended You Choose Bay Area, an event at which representatives of the Silicon Valley Community Foundation expressed concern about the growing Bay Area population. As an advocate of population control, Mr. Whitney wrote a letter to the editor of The Berkeley Daily Planet with a question: Do Bay Area residents want their area to experience such a jump? In response, Searle Whitney pointed out that the Bay Area is already experiencing a shortage of resources and lacks the infrastructure to support the more than 900,000 housing units that would be built to accommodate such a massive increase.

At the You Choose Bay Area event, Searle Whitney observed that numerous developers, who are proponents of Silicon Valley's widespread growth, stated that a transit-based development system could minimize energy use. Mr. Whitney believes the opposite. He points out that each person requires resources, such as food, water, shelter, waste processing, and transportation. Creating a mass transportation system solves only one problem. By adding more people, the global footprint—defined as the use of resources and carbon emissions—can only grow with the population.

Searle Whitney's experience with population research dates back several years. During his undergraduate and graduate years at Yale University and Harvard University, respectively, he earned degrees in psychology. He dedicated his work to dissolving untruths about population growth, namely that many media outlets, world leaders, and researchers do not acknowledge population as the cause of many of the world's critical environmental and social issues, such as species extinction.

In response, Searle Whitney founded the Institute for Population Studies (IPS), a nonprofit organization devoted to spreading information concerning the effect of population growth on the world. By visiting IPS websites, visitors can learn why many media outlets choose to ignore population and how they can help take responsibility for population-based issues.
