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

    Albert Bartlett

    Every single day, in newspapers, on the radio, and on TV, growth continues to be the mantra. Growth is not the answer. Growth is the problem.

    Since this video was made in 2007, we have added another billion people to the planet Earth. This will not end well for the human race, much sooner than later.

    I flipped to CNBC a few months back and caught Kudlow at the end of his show saying, “The government needs to understand we need growth and lots of it. It’s as simple as that!”

    He said it as if it was as easy as turning on a light switch, like Charlie Sheen saying, “Winning!”

    As long as growth is pursued while net energy cost remains high and increase, the tighter the squeeze will be when we hit a hard limit. It seems as though civilization is run by a blind drunk, failing to see the relationship between the economy and energy, stubbornly ignoring limits.

    Around the world we have a food crisis, a water crisis, a declining fish stocks crisis, a jobs crisis, a Climate Change crisis, and an OVER POPULATION crisis.

    Every year the world adds 80 million more mouths to feed, clothe and provide energy and shelter for. This is unsustainable.

    Especially depressing with a provincial election here in Ontario and seeing the three major parties all betting on the return of robust growth. Two parties want to continue running large deficits on the assumption that growth will eventually cure the deficit/debt problem. One party wants to introduce personal and corporate tax reductions in the hope that this will stimulate economic growth. Given the highly likely scenario that growth continues to be weak there will be a very unhappy ending somewhere down the road.

    we deserve what is coming. Greed is killing the planet’s ecosystem that we need to exist. The spread of the Western consumption disease has almost reached it’s limits and the cure is not going to be fun for any of us.

    I had a Vasectomy and no children.
    Humanity’s future is not my responsibility or my problem. I wish you all the best, but I am resigned to the fact that the best people can do is not good enough for my wife and me to want to bring a child into this world.
    Carpe Diem
