BBC: How Many People Can Live on Earth?

I have just watched this excellent program and I must say, I am impressed by the presentation of the problem, of the related problems of water, oil/ energy and food availability and also the destruction of other species.

Some possible solutions are presented, but the conclusion is suitable somber.

Well worth watching, highly recommended.

Horizon

How Many People Can Live on Planet Earth?

In a Horizon special, naturalist Sir David Attenborough investigates whether the world is heading for a population crisis.

In his lengthy career, Sir David has watched the human population more than double from 2.5 billion in 1950 to nearly seven billion. He reflects on the profound effects of this rapid growth, both on humans and the environment.

While much of the projected growth in human population is likely to come from the developing world, it is the lifestyle enjoyed by many in the West that has the most impact on the planet. Some experts claim that in the UK consumers use as much as two and a half times their fair share of Earth's resources.

Sir David examines whether it is the duty of individuals to commit not only to smaller families, but to change the way they live for the sake of humanity and planet Earth.

Broadcast on: BBC Two, 9:00pm Wednesday 9th December 2009 Duration: 59 minutes
