Can Geo Talks: 2019

Can Geo Talks 2019: Darrell Bricker and John Ibbitson

For half a century statisticians, pundits and politicians have warned that a burgeoning planetary population will soon overwhelm the earth’s resources.  But a growing number of experts are sounding a different kind of alarm.  Rather than growing exponentially, they argue, the global population is headed for a steep decline.

In Empty Planet, authors Darrell Bricker and John Ibbitson draw on a wealth of research and first hand reporting to illustrate the real and dramatic consequences of global depopulation including worker shortages, a weakened economy and crippling demands on healthcare and social security.  Rigorously researched and deeply compelling, Empty Planet offers a vision of a future that we can no longer prevent — but one that we can shape, if we choose.
