SoGES Biodiversity Working Group guest lecture with Jeffrey McKee: “The Human Wedge: How Human Population Growth is fueling a Mass Extinction”

Date: 
February 11, 2015
12:00pm to 1:00pm

More people means less wildlife. Of course, it's not quite that simple: other factors besides sheer human numbers play important roles in biodiversity loss. But no factor is more important in driving the sixth mass extinction of life on Earth than continued human population growth. More of us really does mean less of (almost) everything else.
