Limits to Growth

In 1972, four scientists at MIT used a computer model to look into the future of the planet, focusing particularly on people's effects on their environment. Using this same World3 computer model, the authors now have an additional 30 years of data to improve the model's predictability. This book shows the consequences of unchecked growth on our planet and its limited resources. The authors look specifically at humanity's devastating effects on climate change, water quality, fisheries, forests, and other natural resources.
