Listen now | Population is Political
I have a couple of questions after listening to this episode.
A while back I listened to the Nate Hagens podcast with Dr. Shanna Swann, where she talked about the proliferation of Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals and their effect on male and female reproductivity, particularly sperm count. I'd be interested to hear Nandita's opinion on how this could effect the predictions of 10-16 billion humans. Is there an impending population decline that we're just not seeing yet.
Also, I've just started reading 'The Good Ancestor', which urges the reader to think in a more long term, multi-generational way, which I tend to have sympathies with. Is this wrong? Can it lead to the twisted thinking of the 'effective altruists'.
Why did Elon Musk say humanity has an under-population problem in an interview last year?
