12:30 – 1:30
Location: 4500 Hubbs Hall
This talk will cover a number of boring, unimportant topics that may leave you with bad feelings either about some of your favorite scientific societies and environmental organizations -- or about the speaker. However, a very good packet of literature will be provided that could turn you into a dyspeptic and change your life.
Stuart H. Hurlbert is President of the Scientists and Environmentalists for Population Stabilization and Professor Emeritus of Biology at San Diego State University. His teaching and research have been primarily in the areas of lake ecology, biostatistics, and man-environment relations. He is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, member of several other scientific societies, and winner of the National Academy of Sciences 2003 Award for Scientific Reviewing. He encourages environmental scientists and their professional societies to show greater courage in addressing U.S. population growth, its consequences, and the urgent need to slow it down.
