Will Technology Let Us Avoid the Limits to Growth?

Thursday, Jan 26, 2012

2012 marks the 40th anniversary of the publication of The Limits to
Growth
. The book unleashed a debate in 1972 that has not yet stopped.
Join us to assess the state of the world economic-environmental
complex as it is now, compared to the possible paths projected in 1972.
Consider how our actions going forward may affect our future
prospects. Explore very basic questions about the
future of the planet:

- How likely is it that advances in technology will allow us to avoid
overshoot and collapse due to resource and ecological limits?
- What would a sustainable future look like -- one that we could
realistically hope to achieve?
- What changes in behavior and cultural expectations would be needed to
attain such a future, in addition to changes in resource utilization and
technology?

Sponsor: New York Academy of Sciences, Green Sciences & Sustainability Program

Dennis Meadows, Ph.D., Author - The Limits to Growth and Thomas Graedel, Ph.D. - Center for Industrial Ecology, Yale University;

Date: Thursday, January 26, 6:00 - 8:00 pm
