This is a great article that calls attention to the fact that climate change is not the disaster caused by excessive population and economic growth. It should be circulated widely to environmental groups, elected, appointed, and career government officials, and also leaders of industry. You should add the Global Footprint Network to the list of Internet links. Their methodology, based on accounting principles, is less shaky than the system dyamics methodology used by Dennis Meadows, & al., which has all the problems of nonlinear dynamics.
Why do you not avoid 0, O, Q, I and 1 in the garbled verification text?

About once a month at Sigma Xi headquarters, we liven up the lunch hour with an American Scientist Pizza Lunch talk. In these informal lectures, scientists describe new research to nonscientists. The series is light on jargon but heavy on solid science. Each Pizza Lunch offers an in-depth look at its subject, whether it's bedbugs or the smart grid.

JSTOR, the online academic archive, now contains complete back issues of American Scientist from its inception in 1913 (as Sigma Xi Quarterly) through 2005.
The table of contents for each issue is freely available to all users; those with institutional access can read each complete issue.
