An Excerpt from 2052 by Jorgen Randers

An Excerpt from 2052 by Jorgen Randers

Forty years ago, "The Limits to Growth" study addressed the grand question of how humans would adapt to the physical limitations of planet Earth. It predicted that during the first half of the 21st century the ongoing growth in the human ecological footprint would stop—either through catastrophic “overshoot and collapse”—or through well-managed “peak and decline.”

So, where are we now? And what does our future look like? In the book "2052", Jorgen Randers, one of the co-authors of "Limits to Growth", issues a progress report and makes a forecast for the next forty years. To do this, he asked dozens of experts to weigh in with their best predictions on how our economies, energy supplies, natural resources, climate, food, fisheries, militaries, political divisions, cities, psyches, and more will take shape in the coming decades. He then synthesized those scenarios into a global forecast of life as we will most likely know it in the years ahead.
