WHAT GOES UP MUST COME DOWN…

Just finished watching this provocative one hour talk about the dire effects of exponential growth (in population, non-renewable energy use, etc.). The lecture is presented by Al Bartlett, Professor Emeritus in nuclear physics at Colorado University. In his own words:

“The greatest shortcoming of the human race is our inability to understand the exponential function.”

This is something for everyone to watch — not just people living or interested in Vancouver. ;)

One thought on “WHAT GOES UP MUST COME DOWN…

  1. this is rather scary stuff for some people, ie I wanted my aunt to see it, but she told me she doesnt want to know and worry about it.
    I guess some people prefer to ignore some facts ;)
    anyway, we live in interesting times :>
