Last Call provides a high-level examination of one of the most fundamental environmental questions of our time - are there limits to growth?
In 1972, the publication of the book The Limits to Growth stimulated worldwide interest and debate, selling 30 million copies in 30 languages. It marked a turning point in thinking about the environment. Prepared for the Club of Rome, the book was based on the work of a team of young scientists from MIT who created the first computer model to analyze the interaction over time of exponential growth with finite natural resources.
Their primary message was that the human footprint, if unchecked, would grow beyond the carrying capacity of the planet on a sustainable basis. They concluded that humanity must adapt to the planet’s limits or risk overshoot, which could result in the collapse of global support systems and human decline.
Four decades later, the surviving authors and mentors of The Limits to Growth assess their earlier predictions, update where we stand today in relation to the earth's limits, and present a "final call" on what we need to do now to avoid global ecological collapse in the next few decades.
Supported by archival footage and other materials, Last Call provides provocative insights into the fundamental reasons behind the ongoing global ecological and economic crises, and what it will take to ensure a more hopeful future.
