The limits to growth : the 30-year update by Donella H Meadows( Book )

71 editions published between 1972 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 1,871 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

[This book] brings data on overshoot and global ecological collapse to the present moment. It provides a short course in the World3 computer model, types of growth, and the various kinds of over-shoot likely to occur in the current century. While it remains to be seen whether public policy will respond effectively and in time to problems such as climate change, this book makes compellingly clear the vital need for a sustainability revolution.-Dust jacket
Beyond the limits : confronting global collapse, envisioning a sustainable future by Donella H Meadows( Book )

34 editions published between 1991 and 1995 in 4 languages and held by 1,823 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beyond the Limits comes to the following key conclusions. Human use of essential resources and generation of pollutants has surpassed sustainable rates. Unless there are significant reductions in material and energy flows, the world faces an uncontrolled decline in per capita food output, energy use, and industrial production. In order to avoid this decline, growth in material consumption and population must be eased down at the same time as there is a rapid and drastic increase in the efficiency of materials and energy use. A sustainable society is technically and economically feasible. The transition to a sustainable society must be made by carefully balancing our long and short-term goals and emphasizing equity and quality of life. It will require honesty, compassion, and maturity."--Jacket

2052 - Der neue Bericht an den Club of Rome eine globale Prognose für die nächsten 40 Jahre by Jørgen Randers( Book )

9 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in German and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vor 40 Jahren erschütterte ein Buch den Fortschrittsglauben der Welt: Der Bericht "Die Grenzen des Wachstums" an den Club of Rome. "Die absoluten Wachstumsgrenzen der Erde werden im Laufe der nächsten hundert Jahre erreicht, wenn es der Menschheit nicht gelingt, ihren ökologischen Fußabdruck zu reduzieren", lautete seine zentrale These. Sie glich einer Revolution und machte das Buch zu einem Weltbestseller mit über 30 Millionen verkauften Exemplaren. Vierzig Jahre später holt der Club of Rome erneut zu einem großen Wurf aus. "2052" lautet der Name des aktuellen Reports. Er skizziert eine Zukunft, die ganz anders sein wird als wir uns dies heute vorstellen können. Welche Nationen werden ihren Wohlstand halten oder gar vermehren - welche unter der künftigen Entwicklung leiden? Wie wird sich der Übergang zur wirtschaftlichen Vorherrschaft Chinas gestalten? Ist die Demokratie nach westlichem Vorbild geeignet, die großen Menschheitsprobleme zu lösen? Jorgen Randers, einer der Co-Autoren des Meadows-Reports von 1972, hat ein Szenario für die nächsten 40 Jahre erstellt; er stützt sich dabei auf globale Prognosen führender Wissenschaftler, Ökonomen und Zukunftsforscher. Trotz der überwiegend düsteren Prognosen glaubt Randers nicht an einen globalen Kollaps, denn "der Anpassungsprozess der Menschheit an die Grenzen dieses Planeten hat begonnen". Aber der Report gibt auch keine Entwarnung, denn die Zukunft wartet mit gewaltigen Herausforderungen auf, wird geprägt sein von sozialen Unruhen und zahlreichen Umbrüchen

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examines the predictions and impact of one of the most controversial environmental books of all time, The Limits to Growth, published four decades ago. The book was based on the work of a team of young scientists from MIT who created the first computer model to analyze the interaction over time of exponential growth with finite natural resources. Four decades later, the surviving authors of The Limits to Growth and the book's mentors gathered to assess their earlier predictions, update where we stand today, and present what we need to do now to avoid global ecological collapse in the next few decades. Featured in the film: Jay Forrester, Professor Emeritus, MIT Sloan School of Management, pioneer of the modern computer age, founder of System Dynamics; Dennis Meadows, Professor Emeritus of Systems Management, University of New Hampshire; author, The Limits to Growth; Donella Meadows, biophysicist and systems analyst, Dartmouth; author, The Limits to Growth; Pew Scholar in Conservation and the Environment; MacArthur Fellow; Jorgen Randers, PhD, Professor of Climate Strategy, BI Norwegian Business School; co-author, The Limits to Growth; author, 2052: A Global Forecast for the Next 40 Years; William Behrens III, co-author, The Limits to Growth; Aurelio Peccei, Founder and President, Club of Rome

Extracted : how the quest for mineral wealth is plundering the planet : a report to the Club of Rome by Ugo Bardi( Book )

2 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in French and English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As we dig, drill, and excavate to unearth the planet's mineral bounty, the resources we exploit from ores, veins, seams, and wells are gradually becoming exhausted. Mineral treasures that took millions, or even billions, of years to form are now being squandered in just centuries--or sometimes just decades. Will there come a time when we actually run out of minerals? Debates already soar over how we are going to obtain energy without oil, coal, and gas. But what about the other mineral losses we face? Without metals, and semiconductors, how are we going to keep our industrial system running? Without mineral fertilizers and fuels, how are we going to produce the food we need? Ugo Bardi delivers a sweeping history of the mining industry, starting with its humble beginning when our early ancestors started digging underground to find the stones they needed for their tools. He traces the links between mineral riches and empires, wars, and civilizations, and shows how mining in its various forms came to be one of the largest global industries. He also illustrates how the gigantic mining machine is now starting to show signs of difficulties. The easy mineral resources, the least expensive to extract and process, have been mostly exploited and depleted. There are plenty of minerals left to extract, but at higher costs and with increasing difficulties. The effects of depletion take different forms and one may be the economic crisis that is gripping the world system. And depletion is not the only problem. Mining has a dark side--pollution--that takes many forms and delivers many consequences, including climate change. The world we have been accustomed to, so far, was based on cheap mineral resources and on the ability of the ecosystem to absorb pollution without generating damage to human beings. Both conditions are rapidly disappearing. Having thoroughly plundered planet Earth, we are entering a new world. Bardi draws upon the world's leading minerals experts to offer a compelling glimpse into that new world ahead."--Publisher information
