How Many People Can Live on Planet Earth? (2009; 50 min)
Famed British naturalist Sir David Attenborough investigates whether the world is heading for a population crisis. He has watched the human population more than double from 2.5 billion in 1950 to nearly seven billion today. Attenborough reflects on the profound effects of this rapid growth for humans and the environment. While much of the projected growth in human population is likely to come from the developing world, it is the lifestyle enjoyed by many in the West that has the most impact on the planet. Sir David examines whether it is the duty of individuals to commit not only to smaller families, but to change the way they live for the sake of humanity and planet Earth.
