Science Friday: “The World Without Us”

April 4, 2008

We’re very excited to bring you a new weekly feature – Science Friday, a weekly science talk show produced by NPR. Each week, a new video will focus on science topics that are in the news, in an effort to bring an educated, balanced discussion to bear on the scientific issues at hand.

This week, the good people at SciFri sat down with award-winning science journalist and author, Alan Weisman to talk about his best-selling book “The World Without Us.” Find out what prompted him to write the book and where Weisman thinks the world is headed if we don’t control our population explosion.

Weisman is Laureate Associate Professor in Journalism and Latin American Studies at the University of Arizona.

Credits: Produced by Carl Flatow. Special thanks to New Jersey City University in Jersey City, N.J. for providing an interview opportunity.
