A new study from researchers at Jay W. Forrester's institute at MIT says that the world could suffer from "global economic collapse" and "precipitous population decline" if people continue to consume the world's resources at the current pace.
Produced for a group called The Club of Rome, the study's researchers created a computing model to forecast different scenarios based on the current models of population growth and global resource consumption. The study also took into account different levels of agricultural productivity, birth control and environmental protection efforts. Twelve million copies of the report were produced and distributed in 37 different languages.
"There is a very clear warning bell being rung here," Turner said. "We are not on a sustainable trajectory."

I completely agree with your concluding statement that it will happen much sooner than 2030. I am quite amazed we have made it this far to tell you the truth. Hopefully with the mainstream media and with the merit of MIT, hopefully we as a country can come up with a solution to this inevitable problem.
