This blog is intended to go along with Population: An Introduction to Concepts and Issues, by John R. Weeks, published by Cengage Learning. The latest edition is the 12th (it came out in 2015), but this blog is meant to complement any edition of the book by showing the way in which demographic issues are regularly in the news.

Beyond Seven Billion

Today the LA Times continues its series on population growth in the world with a live online chat, beginning at 330PM Pacific Time.
The Times' Kenneth R. Weiss — co-winner of the Pulitzer Prize for "Altered Oceans" — and experts from three continents will discuss global population growth in a live-streamed video chat. Guests include Dr. Malcolm Potts and Dr. Ndola Prata, both of UC Berkeley; William Ryerson of the Population Media Center; and Fatima Adamu.

If you miss it, as I will be forced to do, I still encourage you to visit the resources available on the LA Times website.
