Human population growth – Eight Billion today; where is the limit?

The talk will address whether population growth is a catastrophic problem that we need to worry about. It will look at the current trends in population growth and its effects on us all. It will also consider how the global population relates to affluence, technological innovation, the environment, and eventually, sustainability. It will then address whether we are doomed if we do not take drastic measures to cut population growth. Finally, it will consider where we are going, and which measures make sense.
