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
