The end of growth

I just finished reading a wonderful book that explains very clearly and comprehensively the bind humanity finds itself into today. I found the reading fascinating and could only agree with its main premise: Quantitative growth is now over, time to do something about it!

I have in fact held that view for quite a long time and was only disappointed in the lack of urgency Richard Heinberg, the author, seems to place on overpopulation and wasn't impressed on its “prescription” for addressing the unavoidable shift.

I found his solutions to be less than convincing and on the “light” side. We'll all need to work on them! This said, this is a book everyone should read to seize the shape of things to come into their future lives...
