The Limits to Growth, and Thinking in Systems

 I've just responded to a typical denialist dismissal of The Limits to Growth: The 30-Year Update

The short summary:

1. The authors of the limits to growth computer models are much more nuanced and critical of their models than are their detractors.

2. The book, Thinking in Systems: A Primer, discusses the fundamental aspects of the model, and how such models change our view of the world.  If there is one book that I wish everyone would read, including every scientist, politician, business leader and educator, it would be Thinking in Systems: A Primer.
