Today on Your Call: What questions should we be asking about population growth?

  

On the next Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with Alan Weisman, author of COUNTDOWN: Our Last, Best Hope for a Future on Earth? A million people are born every 4 ½ days around the globe. Weisman traveled to 20 countries to ask: How many humans can the planet hold without capsizing? Is that the right question? Or should we focus on how we can live more efficiently with the planet’s resources? Join the conversation on the next Your Call with Rose Aguilar and You.
