Technological Optimism: A richly illustrated lecture by John Lobell

Ever since the explosive best-seller of the 1960s, “The Population Bomb”, we have been warned of impending doom. Mass starvation, resource depletion, environmental degradation. Some of these are real problems yet we continue to see technological marvels and increasing prosperity. So what is the real story? Come to Lobell’s presentation of Technological Optimism, and be prepared to discuss. (Disagreements welcome.)
