Bottleneck: Humanity's Impending Impasse

Author:
Pages: 308
ISBN: 1441522247
Language: English


Follow up to his seminal 1980 book Overshoot, which I hold as one of the clearest books written on the human predicament vis a vis resource depletion, environmental degradation and population overshoot. It’s also one of the three legs of the stool I recommend for grokking said human predicament (as perhaps best defined by John Michael Greer in The Long Descent, also recommended). The three legs are Catton’s book, Overshoot, Albert Bartlett’s talk on Exponential Growth, and the documentary What a Way to Go: Life at the End of Empire. Toss in some Daniel Quinn, Derrick Jensen and Richard Heinberg, and you’ll really be up to speed. But start with that solid three-legged base.

    Gets to the truth we are all looking for. Overpopulation is the true source of all evil – and the author does a tremendous job explaining it with evidence, reason and impeccable argumentation. Definitely a book worth buying, reading, underlying and writing all over it – then keeping on your bookshelves at home.
