The Population Problem: Living Large on a Finite Planet


Rallying against overpopulation can be quite taboo these days, even among environmentalists. Yet the ecological impacts of our expanding civilization grow evermore severe, anti-immigration cries reach a fever pitch worldwide, and locally we struggle with the converging crises of overcrowding. Host Laura Garzon Chica @EarthMediaArts revisits the heated debate around population with two guests: Paul Ehrlich @PaulREhrlich of Stanford University (Woods Institute for the Environment, Center for Conservation Biology, and Millennium Alliance for Humanity and the Biosphere); and Martin Adams @heyMartinAdams of Progress.org, author of Land: A New Paradigm for a Thriving World.
