John Tanton: The Next Generation and The Demographers
Tanton Video Interview Interview 2006 - Topic 12
Here, Dr. John Tanton keeps working in the area of population stabilization because of his interest, and concern for future generations, including his own children and grandchildren. Tanton does not want to see future generations in a world with cutthroat competition for declining supplies of natural resources.
He differentiates between demographic population projections and predictions. Demographers produce projections based upon current data, but do not predict the future and are not per se concerned about the consequences of population growth.
