THE PEOPLE PROBLEM


Is bigger better? The effects of population growth on the people of Utah and the state's environment will be discussed at a conference in Salt Lake City, April 29. Keynote speaker Judith Jacobsen, a consultant to the President's Council on Sustainable Development, will talk about the international conference on population held in Cairo last year and discuss the links between population, consumption, the status of women and land use. The day-long conference includes workshops on land use in the West and the impact of population on water resources and air quality.
