BOULDER, Colo. (AP) – Albert Allen Bartlett, a physics professor who warned of the consequences of population growth and its impact on energy consumption, has died.

The University of Colorado, Boulder, said Monday that Bartlett died Saturday. He was 90.

Bartlett taught at CU-Boulder from 1950 to 1988 and he became a well-known for his lecture titled “Arithmetic, Population and Energy.” Since first delivering the lecture to a group of students in 1969, Bartlett has delivered the lecture more than 1,700 times.

Bartlett spent two years as an experimental physicist at Los Alamos as part of the Manhattan Project before earning his graduate degree in physics at Harvard.

Bartlett is survived by four daughters. A memorial service is planned in October.
