OP, you are right. Industrial Civilization is probably on the way down. We cannot support this indefinite growth. If we solve our oil problems, and
don't hit peak oil, we will continue to grow exponentially. What's next? Peak Topsoil? Something I read that was interesting on the subject was the
Unabomber Manifesto. It's not so much about why the industrial revolution can't last, but on why its downfall will be good for humanity.
Just a thought.
