That was an excellent podcast. As chance would have it the latest issue of the NZ Geographic had an article on Crispr and was discussing the same issues.

Fascinating stuff, but how do you figure we will level off at 9 to 11 billion if we no longer die but keep having children? Do we raffle off places to young couples to meet the attrition caused by accidents and diseases we haven't (yet) cured?
 
i'd like to throw in two things:

life span

health span

the goal as i understand it it to expand and/or lengthen health span 

we currently spend a lot of time and money on the end stage of life

maximizing quality of life and decreasing cost of treatment or time spent in treatment

this will probably increase life span as well

people have been fascinated with immortality since the dawn of time

who wouldn't like to add some quality time to their lives?

The researchers applied compounds called reversatrol analogues, chemicals based on a substance naturally found in red wine, dark chocolate, red grapes and blueberries, to cells in culture.  The chemicals caused splicing factors, which are progressively switched off as we age to be switched back on.  Within hours, the cells looked younger and started to rejuvenate, behaving like young cells and dividing. 

The research  Small molecule modulation of splicing factor expression is associated with rescue from cellular senescence, is published in the journal, BMC Cell Biologyhttps://bmccellbiol.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s12860-017-0147-7 .  

The discovery has the potential to lead to therapies which could help people age better, without experiencing some of the degenerative effects of getting old. Most people by the age of 85 have experienced some kind of chronic illness, and as people get older they are more prone to stroke, heart disease and cancer. 

Professor Harries said:  “This is a first step in trying to make people live normal lifespans, but with health for their entire life. Our data suggests that using chemicals to switch back on the major class of genes that are switched off as we age might provide a means to restore function to old cells.”

Five Questions for Steven Pinker

The prolific science author and Harvard professor of psychology takes questions on language, journalism, and our historical moment.

The Undark Five — that would be five questions that we put to researchers who are influential, provocative, sometimes controversial — premiers this month with Harvard University psychologist Steven Pinker.

Pinker is the Johnstone Family Professor in the Department of Psychology, where he conducts research on language and cognition. He is the author of ten books, including the recent bestsellers “The Better Angels of Our Nature” and “The Sense of Style: The Thinking Person’s Guide to Writing in the 21st Century.” He is a recognized expert in the development of language and linguistics.

As such, Pinker is also a scientist who is demonstrably adept at communicating about science, conveying complex ideas directly to the public, not only through his books but as a public speaker, magazine author, and prolific user of Twitter. From that perspective, he has often looked critically at the way journalists distill and interpret science on behalf of the public — a topic on which he has strong opinions.

US scientists try 1st gene editing in the body

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Scientists for the first time have tried editing a gene inside the body in a bold attempt to permanently change a person’s DNA to cure a disease.

The experiment was done Monday in California on 44-year-old Brian Madeux. Through an IV, he received billions of copies of a corrective gene and a genetic tool to cut his DNA in a precise spot.

“It’s kind of humbling” to be the first to test this, said Madeux, who has a metabolic disease called Hunter syndrome. “I’m willing to take that risk. Hopefully it will help me and other people.”
“I’m nervous and excited,” Madeux said as he prepared to leave the hospital. “I’ve been waiting for this my whole life, something that can potentially cure me.”

i have posted a ton of info on that subject

have a look in the population thread

short answer is energy increases quality of life

that has a direct impact on the number of children people have

we should level off somewhere around 9 to 11 billion

so overpopulation under current conditions isn't going to be that big of an issue

extending the quality and quantity of life could have a short term impact

i'm of the belief that we will adjust accordingly

Old human cells rejuvenated in breakthrough discovery on ageing

A new way to rejuvenate old cells in the laboratory, making them not only look younger, but start to behave more like young cells, has been discovered by researchers at the Universities of Exeter and Brighton.

A  team led Professor Lorna Harries, Professor of Molecular Genetics at the University of Exeter, has discovered a new way to rejuvenate inactive senescent cells. Within hours of treatment the older cells started to divide, and had longer telomeres - the 'caps' on the chromosomes which shorten as we age.

This discovery, funded by the Dunhill Medical Trust, builds on earlier findings from the Exeter group that showed that a class of genes called splicing factors are progressively switched off as we age. The University of Exeter research team, working with Professor Richard Faragher and Dr Elizabeth Ostler from the University of Brighton, found that splicing factors can be switched back on with chemicals, making senescent cells not only look physically younger, but start to behave more like young cells and start dividing.

The researchers applied compounds called reversatrol analogues, chemicals based on a substance naturally found in red wine, dark chocolate, red grapes and blueberries, to cells in culture.  The chemicals caused splicing factors, which are progressively switched off as we age to be switched back on.  Within hours, the cells looked younger and started to rejuvenate, behaving like young cells and dividing.

Alphabet’s Waymo launches public campaign to build trust in self-driving cars

Because there’s nothing more useless than an autonomous vehicle with no one in it

Waymo, the self-driving car unit spun out of Google last year, is launching a public education campaign today called “Let’s Talk Self-Driving” aimed at addressing the skepticism many people have about autonomous technology. The company is teaming up with a host of safety and disability advocacy groups to promote its self-driving car pilot in Arizona, as well as raise awareness around a technology that remains inaccessible to most people.
