About this book

Published to coincide with the Earth Summit in Rio, this book uses global computer modelling to show that, without immediate and extensive action, the growth in the world's population and industrial activity will overshoot the limits of what the world can physically sustain. The authors argue that we must live within our means if the world is to avoid sudden and catastrophic collapse. By the authors of Limits to Growth, published in 1972.
