On February 13, in Seattle there will be an open session in the afternoon before the Annual AAAS meeting starts. Open to all and free, addressing this question: Will modern civilization be the death of us?
Bill Rees (the Ecological Footprint guy) and Ruben will be making the strongest cases they know that the answer to the question is yes.
