Albert Bartlet (bio cribbed from his Wikipedia entry):
Albert A. Bartlett is an emeritus Professor of Physics at the University of Colorado at Boulder, USA. Professor Bartlett has lectured over 1,500 times on Arithmetic, Population, and Energy. Bartlett is a modern-day Malthusian.

Professor Bartlett often explains how sustainable growth is an oxymoron. His view is based on the fact that a modest percentage growth can equate to huge escalations over short periods of time. He has famously stated that "The greatest shortcoming of the human race is our inability to understand the exponential function."

He regards overpopulation as The Greatest Challenge facing humanity, and promotes sustainable living. Bartlett opposes the cornucopian school of thought (as advocated by people such as Julian Lincoln Simon), and refers to it as The New Flat Earth Society.

J. B. Calvert (1999) has proposed that Bartlett's Law will result in the exhaustion of petrochemical resources due to the exponential growth of the world population (as per the Malthusian Growth Model).

When I record the long interview with Prof. Bartlett, I will assume that the audience has already listened to his talk, : http://globalpublicmedia.com/lectures/461

I'll flesh this entry out a bit later, but just now, it's time for me to get on home.

Stay well.

I've been wondering why you do this. It seems that you make this post before you actually have anything to post, then you come back and edit it with content. If that is true, I don't understand why you do that. I, for one, never even think to come back later in the day to check.

If that's not your intent, and you simply want to let us know that the podcast is currently taking place, perhaps it might be a good idea for you to actually link to it for those who'd like to participate, or whatever. (I know absolutely nothing about podcasts, but I think they're like radio shows. I hope that's right.)

The show description that I post to Podomatic includes the URL for the "Extended Show Notes" that listeners can find here on LiveJournal. I need to create the LJ post first in order to generate the URL that I will include in the abbreviated show notes for Podomatic.

I'm glad you have him on your pod cast. I took an NLP course from him in 1999 up in Wisconsin called "How to get people to do what you want...". Rex is a great guy and knows a great deal about the mind. I look forward to hearing it when i get the chance.

I had a great time talking to him, and we talked much longer than I had planned. He'll be back in episode #34.

On "greedy reductionism": I am frustrated by people who think explaining a phenomena somehow gets rid of it. However, I think it's important to note that view comes from both materialists and mystics. As often as I've been annoyed by some people insisting that explained phenomena cannot be meaningful, I've been annoyed by people insisting that meaningful phenomena cannot (or should not) be explained.
