Department:Miller Worley Center for the Environment

Our crowded planet gains one million more people every four and one-half days, and Earth isn’t getting any bigger.

Author Alan Weisman will speak about that dilemma, and his new book Countdown: Our Last, Best Hope for a Future on Earth? He promises nothing less than to “reveal what may be the fastest, most acceptable, practical, and affordable way of returning our planet, and our presence on it to balance.”
