The greatest shortcoming of the human race is our inability to
understand the exponential function."
- A.A. Bartlett (2004)

"In our classrooms and in our lives as scientists, we must
acknowledge that overpopulation is the world's most serious and
threatening problem and that this problem requires immediate and
urgent attention."
-A.A. Bartlett (2012)
