Ha. Poor engineers. They could've spent themselves years and just done
some "googling" on the bleeding obvious.
Can This Current Way of Life Continue?
By Dermot O'Connor. 2012. (34:52)
Combining graphs and other visual examples in animation, this short
film goes through the issues surrounding the collapse of industrial
civilisation--by collating the interconnectedness of energy
depletion, carrying capacity, population growth, peak natural
resource extraction, and other issues with the problems of
exponential economic growth on a finite planet. Can this current way
of life continue? The film takes us through these problems and also
examines some of the many flaws inherent in some proposed solutions,
such as 'change-by-personal-consumer-choice', or the vague belief in
technology as the deus ex machina to save the day. These serious
problems need serious solutions and require a radical rethinking of
this current way of life that cannot continue indefinitely. Time is
Way past time to get to work.
All the best,
