I was really surprised by this video. This professor is so brilliant at making this easy to understand.

I hope others will watch it too.

This video has 8 parts. Each is about 10 min

Dr. Albert A. Bartlett's presentation on "Arithmetic, Population, and Energy.

I saw that years ago, really brings the message home! It's amazing how many don't get that infinite growth is literally impossible.

I wish we could make this video more viral. I'd love to see the PERMIES newsletter talk about it and also Geoff Lawton in his newsletter.

He really makes the math easy to break down and understand. He makes it easy to see when "experts" are lying. It makes it easy to figure out if politicians are telling the truth.

It would also change the way we think about growth, oil, coal, etc.

The info on ethanol was also shocking.

Thanks so much for the reply. So glad that someone else found it mind blowing.
