The Greatest Shortcoming of the Human Race is our Inability to Understand the Exponential Function
A mathematics professor at the University of Colorado, Boulder explains clearly and simply what the compounding the exponent means means to every day Americans.
Common Sense?
Upon a thorough examination of the factual growth numbers, it is clear that if we don't consider the realities of our addiction to growth, we may actually be setting our system up for a forced reduction in growth.

A theory integrating all these things in a "sustainable" way?
It's Called ""negative population growth"".
In around 780 years, at the current rate the population of the earth is growing. Each person will have one square meter. We will have standing room only folks...
Check this guys math, prove him wrong....

The Math of Life, Growth & Pain on Scale

Geoffrey West of the Santa Fe Institute spoke this morning at the Techonomy conference on The Secrets of Scale. He went through chart after chart demonstrating a simple and reliable mathematical relationship between growth and various costs and benefits to animals, people, cities and corporations...

Eliminate oil and coal usage by 2050?
You must mean, learn to live with out oil and coal by 2050. In the next few decades supply's of oil and coal will not be able to keep up with mans growth.
At best we are on a mathematically provable, unsustainable course. That in fact makes global warming and the pollution problems look like a mild snow storm in march.
I spent years, starting in 1968, being concerned about pollution and global warming. When after taking a look at the big picture. We do not have enough fossil fuel to cause any permanent damage...
The big ouch comes when not if we run out of fossil fuels.
Prof. Albert Bartlett has about the best explanation I've seen so far. So if it's fact's and undeniable proof you seek.
Check this out, Dr.Bartlett is years ahead of you.

Amory Lovins on Energy in 1976 Versus Today

Written By Brian Wang of nextbigfuture.com Amory Lovins wrote the Energy Strategy : The Road not Taken? in 1976 for Foreign Affairs. Cogeneration at that time was 4% of the energy of the United States. It is now 18%, and Amory now calls it micropower. Amory talked then of coal, conservation and ...
