"Countdown" Links Population and Environment
May 23, 2014
Alan Weisman is an investigative journalist whose latest book, “Countdown”, just won a Los Angeles Times Book Prize.
He interviewed dozens of scientists, experts and everyday working people in 21 countries to identify and explore the critical issues surrounding our planet’s staggering population explosion.
Alan Weisman talked with KFAI’s Steve Chollar about the book, which he says grew out of a question left unanswered at the end of his previous book, the best seller “The World Without Us.”
