The world is getting smaller. Or is it?

Or, how to listen to people that the people you listen to aren't listening to.

Fascinating! It encourages me to keep hitting the "next blog" button and seeing what comes.

Are you sure we shouldn't move to China next so Aurora can learn mandarin easily and become a bridge figure? Pity it would be very hard work for us to learn!

Did you see this on population growth?

Yep, someone else gave me that link. It's a great video for a quick bird's eye view of global population. I've got a post half-written on population and consumption that was going to make reference to it.

Was there anything about it in particular that caught your attention?

Matthew Moffitt said...

His "modern" presentation very clearly explained what population growth will look like in the next 50 years. His solution is very simple, but I wonder if it is achievable?

What did you think (or should wait for post).

Perhaps it might be achievable if we weren't facing so many of these.
