PAUL EHRLICH AND THE POPULATION BOMB
The human population is likely to double by the middle of the 21st century,
soaring past 10 billion people. How will all these people survive? Will
there be enough resources to meet everyone's needs or will there be massive
social upheaval, famine, and rampant pollution? These questions have been a
consuming passion for biologist and environmental pioneer Paul Ehrlich, who
nearly 30 years ago first set out to persuade the world that continued and
unchecked population growth would upset the balance of nature and further
widen the gap between developed and devoloping nations. Based on Ehrlich's
best-selling book, "The Population Bomb," the program features compelling
archival footage from around the world, as well as interviews with Ehrlich,
his colleagues, and his critics.

"The opportunity at LSSU to do research is amazing. This past summer I motored through coves and islands with Prof. Garvon surveying water birds for the affects of pollution. I spent the other part of my summer on the shore of Lake Superior monitoring nests of the endangered Piping Plover."
