PODCAST: The end of Growth?

flag uk

50 years ago Dennis Meadows co-published the famous “Meadows Report”, which is also called the report of the Club of Rome, or “limits to growth”. It says, in short, that infinite growth in a finite world is not possible, and that sooner or later we will reach physical limits and start to decline. And according to the models, this “sooner or later” would happen around 2030… Fascinating interview with the spiritual father of sustainable development with knowledge that is still relevant today.

Il y a 50 ans Dennis Meadows co-publiait le fameux rapport « Meadows ».
Ce rapport est aussi appelé rapport du Club de Rome, ou « limits to growth ».
Il dit en bref qu’une croissance infinie dans un monde fini n’est pas possible et que tôt ou tard, nous allons atteindre des limites physiques et commencer à décroître.
Et d’après les modélisations de l’époque, ce « tôt ou tard » arrive autour de 2030…
Interview fascinante du père spirituel du développement durable avec un savoir toujours aussi actuel.

We too often forget that our entire civilization is based on the extraction of matter, this is called extractivism. That is, to make concrete you need sand, to make steel you need iron and of course, fossil fuels.

At a time when mines are reopening in Europe, the question of energy sovereignty and its economic, geopolitical and of course environmental and social costs arises.
