Contents Notes
Overshoot -- The driving force: exponential growth -- The limits: sources and sinks -- World3: the dynamics of growth in a finite world -- Back from beyond the limits: the ozone story -- Technology, markets, and overshoot -- Transitions to a sustainable system -- Tools for the transition to sustainability. [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.
