Beyond the limits : confronting global collapse, envisioning a sustainable future by Donella H Meadows( Book )

39 editions published between 1991 and 1995 in 4 languages and held by 1,735 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

[This book] brings data on overshoot and global ecological collapse to the present moment.

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

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
