Michael Cook | 29 June 2009

Iran’s demographic crisis

Michael Cook | 25 June 2009
There’s a demographic dimension to the turmoil in Iran over the disputed election results. Most of the rioters seem to have been young people in the cities.

Welcome to Demography Is Destiny. We launched this to counter two media memes: that humans are a cancer which is destroying our planet and that world population is spiralling to unsustainable levels. The real story is that intelligent and inventive human will rise to the challenge of climate change and that our real problem is the coming demographic winter. The editor of Demography is Destiny is Marcus Roberts, a New Zealand lawyer. Send him your comments and suggestions.
