    Thomas, before you fall for the conclusions of this paper and go hand-wringing around with it, perhaps you should read a rebuttal at wattsupwiththat.com. It very clearly and concisely shreds the authors conclusions about population growth. All credibility goes out the window at that point.

      Doug – yes I have no doubt that Watt’s Up With That has a rebuttal. Okay, I’m willing to keep an open mind an consider various points of view. Are you? What other sources of information do you subscribe to besides WUWT?
      Update – Doug (and others) – I suggest instead of listening to any one (or two) sources, including those we “want” to trust the most, we look for the data ourselves, in this specific case human population growth rate. That goes for Eschenbach as well as the authors cited in this post.

      What is clear, however, and I’d like to hear the WUWT rebuttal, is that resources are being depleted at an unsustainable rate.
