Bocquet-Appel on the NDT

In a Science podcast, Jean-Pierre Bocquet-Appel discusses the Neolithic Demographic Transition (NDT). This is in conjunction with his recent Science editorial marking the milestone of 7 billion humans on the planet earth. This is great exposure for a tremendously important idea that I have been studying for the past six years or so, as you can see in my list of publications (particularly this one, and also my recent edited volume with Jake Fox; I need to update that list).

I haven't seen a lot of reaction so far. There is a post on this on Dienekes' Blog, complete with the kind of superficial, ill-thought-out criticism that can only be found in blog comment threads.
