Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Maintaining an infinite [material] growth system in a finite material world is a logical and physical impossibility.

Hostility to the notion of limits to growth by Jerome a Paris on December 20th, 2007
