Have We Used Up All Of Our Resources On Earth?

Have we used up all our resources? Have we filled up all the livable space on Earth? Paul Gilding suggests we have, and the possibility of devastating consequences, in a talk that’s equal parts terrifying and, oddly, hopeful.

Rivers still flow, oxygen is in the air, trees are still alive, WE are still alive. So no, we have not used all our resources. And let's not forget the thousands, maybe millions of us currently learning to better do our part in making sure that never happens, chin up, this ship hasn't sunk yet!

I don't think those resources were ever "ours" to use......I think old fashioned organic philosophy and permaculture princples are making that point along with ideas on how to live without looking at the world's "natural resources" as a shopping opportunity. Just reading and participating in this forum gives me hope.... along with more and more mindfulness on the part of more and more individuals who do not consider money/the economy as the bottom line..

Readily available silver will be gone by 2020? Now we have to grow our way out of it...once the most useful plant is freed, we will not have need. Ah...cannabis.

The silver extinction is in there...somewhere...I had it on my old Mac and it died a miserable death.

In a word, no.

I think that this wikipedia article explains it better than I could, and without expletives: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malthusian_catastrophe
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://stoves2.com
