Ten Billion

Ten Billion

Stephen Emmott is a scientist who heads a prestigious lab in Cambridge, England that researches complex natural systems, from biogeochemistry, climatology and immunology to molecular biology, neuroscience and new fields of programming life and artificial photosynthesis.

Emmott shows where population has been – relatively steady state for thousands of years – and then how it’s gone parabolic in a relatively short time. He covers the agricultural revolution, land use and degradation, habitat loss, pollution, species extinction, climate change, water use, peak oil, et al. And he asks, and answers, can technology get us out of our fix?
