The World in 2050
Wednesday, September 5, 2012 at 7:00 PM (PDT)
This talk draws on the latest global modeling research to construct a sweeping thought experiment on what our world will be like in 2050. The World in 2050 combines the lessons of geography and history with state-of-the-art model projections and analytical data-everything from climate dynamics and resource stocks to age distributions and economic growth projections.
Laurence C. Smith is Professor and Vice-Chair of Geography and Professor of Earth & Space Sciences at University of California Los Angeles. A Guggenheim fellow, he won the Walter P. Kistler Book Award for THE WORLD IN 2050 and the AAAS John Wesley Powell Speaker award.
