One of the most ominous events of modern history is quietly unfolding. Social scientists and economists agree – we are headed toward a demographic winter which threatens to have catastrophic social and economic consequences. The effects will be severe and long lasting and are already becoming manifest in much of Europe.
A ground breaking film, Demographic Winter: Decline of the Human Family draws upon voices from all around the world and experts from many different disciplines – demographers, economists, sociologists, psychologists, civic and religious leaders, parliamentarians and diplomats. Together, they reveal in chilling soberness the dangers facing society and the world’s economies, dangers far more imminent global warming and at least as severe.
