Paul Gilding: The Earth is full

(16:47) It's obvious that infinite growth on a finite planet is impossible, yet the answer to our woes is always 'more growth'. Former executive director of Greenpeace, Paul Gilding, warns of the devastating future about to unfold. Much doom and gloom but he finishes with an oddly hopeful message.

Latest comment: "The earth is full." hm. "The earth is full." Damn, this sounds SOOO familiar. Oh, yes! Now I remember: "The power of population is so superior to the power of the earth to produce subsistence for man." (I.e., "the earth is full.") Robert Thomas Malthus, 1798. Thanks for the badly outdated speech, Mr. Mal... er... Mr. Gilding. "Next verse, same as the first!"
