"The Edge of the Petri Dish: Wizards and Prophets," by Charles C. Mann '76

5:00 pm - 6:30 pm Science Center, Kirkpatrick Lecture Hall (SCCE A011)

Charles C. Mann ’76, a local author, will give a talk on his most recent book, The Wizard and the Prophet.

In 40 years, Earth’s population will reach 10 billion. Can our world support that? What kind of world will it be? Those answering these questions generally fall into two deeply divided groups-- wizards and prophets, as Mann calls them.
