The Crash Course

The Crash Course will provide you with the context for the massive changes now underway, as economic growth as we've known it is ending due to depleting resources.

But it also offers real hope. Those individuals who take informed action today, while we still have time, can lower their exposure to these coming trends -- and even discover a better way of life in the process. We'll show you how. » Read more

Prophets of Doom on the History Channel

I hope other people saw the program "Prophets of Doom" on the History Channel.  They were dead on on most things taking place.  It really looked like they had taken it from the Crash Course.  See if you can catch it when it is on again.  There seems to be more awareness building.

exponential growth

I just stumbled on a thread from a few weeks ago where people were challenging CM's exponential growth claim.  Since the thread is old, I started a new thread to revisit that issue and help answer the question that so many people have, i.e. "economists have proven debt does NOT need to increase, so where does exponential growth come from?" 

This brings up 2 key issues: 1) does this mean debt-based money isn't an exponential engine? and 2) what really causes exponential DEBT growth?

Kurzweil Speculates on Solar Energy, Health and Other Topics

Sources for issues presented in crash course

Hello all

I need to do a 30 page report on exponential growth and limits to growth based on Crash Course. I need to objectively review the points presented in the video and determine whether or not they are true or accurate.

For this project I need lots of source material: books from academic/respected authors and articles published in scientific journals.

Oil as the cause of exponential growth in population and economy

It's an interesting question you pose, whether oil "causes" exponential growth. There's a recurring joke among environment scientists, that man was put on earth to free up all the excess energy stored during the eons when oil, coal and natural gas formed.
