Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I read The Limits to Growth when it first came out in paperback and it seemed well presented and intuitively obvious to me.
How unserious™ of you. Don't you know that book is still not even wrong  even after its third edition?
In 2008 Graham Turner at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) in Australia published a paper called "A Comparison of `The Limits to Growth` with Thirty Years of Reality".[5][6] It examined the past thirty years of reality with the predictions made in 1972 and found that changes in industrial production, food production and pollution are all in line with the book's predictions of economic and societal collapse in the 21st century.[7]

We need a mechanism that rewards Unserious PeopleTM when, after 30 years, they are proven right.  I want my prize!
