Abstract

According to Dr. Barnes: There is no one problem more immediately pressing or as crucial as the questionable future of man's existence of terms of our expanding population. The stress the immediacy of the problem, Dr. Barnes vividly illustrated by statistics the magnitude of the world's population growth. The exponential curve yielded by calculations of this rate of growth leads Dr. Barnes to state, unequivocally, that "...we have about six hundred years at the present rate of growth before every man, woman, and child on this globe has one square foot in which to stand. This calculation includes the polar caps, northern Siberia, and southern Siberia."
