[Video Series] Arithmetic, Population and Energy

15 Dec

I was turned onto this video series from a link within a comment of The Elevation Group that I am a part of. This is an 8 video series that talks about the same exponential growth issue as the Chris Martenson video I posted last month. 

The talking heads on TV and the politicians won’t admit this, but this university professor and some simple math will tell you what to expect in the next 30 years.

I highly recommend you take 1 hour out of your day now and figure out how continued “growth” will affect your life, your family’s life and everything on this planet in this coming century. We just can not continue to use up finite resources at the rate we are currently using them (or using them at a growing rate.) It’s just not mathematically possible.

I’d love to hear what other people think about this. Please leave a comment here – is he right? Is he wrong? Is he missing something? Is he just a crazy old man? What can we do about this? Do any people out there have any solutions?

Please share your thoughts, opinions and solutions below.

Here’s the video, he explains it much better than I can.
