Energy and Carrying Capacity
Video Interview with Garrett Hardin
"Technology has increased the carrying capacity of the earth." "We're now living on the riches of the past [oil]." Economists are not scientists.
Are you optimistic? "Oh, sure... I'm allowed to live one life, and it's wonderful. I don't object to my life, but I don't object to dying, either. Death is necessary for the good of the species."
