Population and exponential growth with Dr. Albert Bartlett

Underlying every problem we are currently experiencing is unchecked population growth. Dr. Albert Bartlett of the University of Colorado in Boulder gave a very informative lecture several years ago, and it is a classic.

Basically, he says the most important thing we are ignoring is the simple mathematical principle of exponential growth.

To know how expogro relates to population, watch this excerpt, and if you have time, watch the entire video posted in Google. The lecture is in 8 segments, each about 8 or 9 minutes long. It’s worth every single second.
