Dot Earth Blog: The Arctic Ice Watch

By 2050 or so, the world population is expected to reach nine billion, essentially adding two Chinas to the number of people alive today.

In Dot Earth, which recently moved from the news side of The Times to the Opinion section, Andrew C. Revkin examines efforts to balance human affairs with the planet’s limits.
