David is a computer scientist with a biology degree, working part-time for the British Dragonfly Society, maintaining their scientific records, and part-time for Population Matters, the charity and think-tank supported by those concerned about world population growth. In this talk he will show that population concerns fits well with Humanism but the threats from those wanting to bring on the Apocalypse or breed a Socialist utopia are equally clear. We now have the tools to steer world population to a sustainable future without frying the planet, thus avoiding the 'Malthusian Catastrophe'. But do we have the collective will to use them?
This is a challenging and important topic, but what should the humanist viewpoint be? Come along to listen and ask questions, all are welcome!
