The Houston-Galveston Area Council forecasts our region’s population could grow from the more than 6 million people living here today, to close to 10 million by the year 2040. Will we be ready for this potential population growth? What will it mean for our health, housing, transportation, economy, and environment?

On this edition of Houston Matters, we contemplate what Greater Houston may look like in about 30 years, and how that potential for further growth may inform what steps we should take now. We welcome your questions and comments for representatives of the Houston Galveston Area Council, Houston METRO, and Houston Wilderness.

Also this hour: we learn about literacy programs in Houston, and what more might be done to teach more Houstonians to read.

And: we talk with RadioLab co-hosts Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich in advance of their appearance here in Houston Wednesday night.
