Synopsis: Examines the problem of the unprecedented rise in the world's population, showing how overpopulation will force future generations to make difficult choices among the competing values of economic development, environmental quality, and procreative freedom.

Review: Experts give varying estimates on the number of people the earth can sustain. Predictions range between 4 and 16 billion, yet with the world's current population at approximately 6 billion, it's seems we can only hope to make a good guess. Joel E. Cohen, head of the laboratory of populations at Rockefeller University in New York, suggests that defining the limits of land, food production and water supply will lead to a more definitive number. He argues that while we may have to prepare for impending restrictions on our basic needs, our governments, our own personal choices and time itself will ultimately determine the confines of our existence.
