Strategic News Service

Strategic News Service, the first paid subscription newsletter on the internet, was started 25 years ago.

In honor of our 25th birthday, we're launching FiRe HQ, a new SNS community platform, and the SNS Apparel Shop; and hosting monthly virtual FiReSide events, where members may meet in intimate conversation with global experts and interact with one another; and generally continuing a yearlong celebration to carry us into the next 25 years.


Confused about QAnon?

Join our next virtual FiReSide with Molly McKew ("QAnon: Driving Us Crazy by Design?") and Aiofe Gallagher ("The ABCs of QAnon") - plus, appropriately, Q&As with your questions, and 2 closing breakouts for small-group conversations.

As we continue our march into the Anthropocene, much has been made of the idea that overpopulation will be one of the key issues of the coming century. The United Nations offers a medium scenario indicating that the world by 2100 will have nearly 11 billion people. Given current rising rates of consumption and the environmental issues we already face, this is a daunting proposition. Such numbers could hardly be sustainable without some sort of explosion in technological efficiency, and even then the project of innovating our way to sustainability at 11 billion would be one for the ages.

The danger, however, is exaggerated.
