Population

The human race is growing and consuming resources at an exponential rate. Take a look at the world's food supply, and what is required for it to keep up with growing numbers of people. Explore how scientists, including Professor Al Bartlett, model population growth and its threat to natural resources. Learn about the CU Population Center, an interdisciplinary community of scholars and professionals engaged in population research and training.
