ABSTRACT
The author defends the premise outlined in the 1971 to 1971 report "Limit to Growth" that there will be a world societal collapse sometime in the 21st century because of a combination of overpopulation, food shortages, resource depletion, reduced industrial output and pollution. The author believes that the report was a modelling exercise based on a small number of significant major trends, with the conclusions being more a work in progress rather than definitive end points.
