Thomas Malthus and his theories on sustainability.

Teaching Notes

This would be an excellent video to show after disscussing Thomas Malthus and his prediction on food sustainability.

This video could be used as one piece of evidence in which students decide whether or not they believe Malthus' predictions will actually occur.
