"Do the Math" an outstanding interview that deserves attention. Living an exponential lifestyle is killing us and denying that fact creates a delusion with huge consequences. This notion of GROWTH as a goal in life defies critical thinking. In nature an organism grows to a point and begins the aging phase of decline; it is normal, natural, and a fact of life. It is what it is. We can't grow in population at the levels we have in the past (theologians take note), we can't consume natural resources at the present levels (developers take note), we can't think only of our present needs (bankers take note), we must think of future generations.
