"Humans: the real threat to life on Earth."

Words of wisdom from Microsoft's Stephen Emmott, PhD

Microsoft's head of Computational Science (based in Cambridge, UK), Dr. Emmott recently presented the world with a terrifying wake-up call. And, in so doing, he inspired me to conceptualize a possible solution---one that he does not believe exists.

In this blog, you will learn all about Dr. Emmott and will hear his compelling message on video. I will also introduce the thinking behind that possible solution. I concluded long ago that we must get mainstream thinkers, like Emmott, onboard when it comes to the plant-based solution to so many of our problems. As such, I have arranged to meet Dr. Emmott in London on October 9. Stay tuned.

Dr. Emmott's message is simply this. Unless we make some HUGE changes in the way we live and reproduce, our future descendants are in deep trouble. A link to his entire article (an edited extract from his new book, Ten Billion) is provided below. Continue reading this article, complete with two videos...

It always makes me worried when a friend has a baby. have they thought about what life may be like in 40 yrs? What are they bringing that child into? We are moving too slow on changes that need to be made & that is of great concern.


The real threat to life on Earth. If population levels continue to rise at the current rate, our grandchildren will see the Earth plunged into an unprecedented environmental crisis, argues computational scientist Stephen Emmott in this extract from his book Ten Billion.
