The limits to growth: a re-examination

A look at the classic book that can still change the world
The planet is finite in its resources, in its ability to produce food, and in its capacity to absorb our wastes. Yet, population and industrial output continue to grow exponentially. The conflict arising from these realities is now becoming apparent. Food and petroleum products are becoming rapidly more expensive and the concentration of greenhouse gases continue to rise. The possibility that these very problems would appear was predicted more than 30 years ago in a best-selling book called The Limits to Growth, a report for The Club of Rome's Project on the Predicament of Mankind. This predicament was, and still is, that while mankind has knowledge of all of the socioeconomic problems challenging the world, it's unable to solve them.
