Can economic growth continue without fossil fuels?
Graham Palmer

It is not only energy production that cannot grow exponentially. Nothing can grow expinentially in a long term. Even if we were able to produce enough energy for 2% growth in the next 140 years, consumption cannot raise 16 times. Will everybody need 16 cellphones and 16 cars at that time?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
