Garrett James Hardin was born in Dallas, Texas, USA. He was an American ecologist and environmentalist who warned of the dangers of overpopulation. His exposition of the tragedy of the commons, in a famous 1968 paper in Science, called attention to "the damage that innocent actions by individuals can inflict on the environment". He is also known for Hardin's First Law of Human Ecology: "You cannot do only one thing", which "modestly implies that there is at least one unwanted consequence". He received a B.S. in zoology from the University of Chicago in 1936 and a Ph.D.in microbiology from Stanford University in 1941. He served as Professor of Human Ecology at the University of California, Santa Barbara from 1963-1978.
