“Our problem is our inability to understand the exponential function” – Dr. Albert Bartlett of the University of Colorado at Boulder gave a lecture many years ago (as you can see by the crappy VHS quality of the video) about the problem we humans face with over-population and our growing demand of resources, which are limited and just can not keep up with economic growths. Basically we are doomed to create problems over time – and he explains this with very simple arithmetics. Dont get fooled by the guy’s appearance or the way he talks – the topic is most interesting and he presents it in a way everybody should be able to understand… at least I could not stop watching the whole lecture. so what are we going to do about it?

Make sure to watch all 8 parts on youtube.
