This review is from: The No Breakfast Fallacy: Why the Club of Rome was wrong about us running out of minerals and metals (Kindle Edition)
Nice idea, and good attention seeking. But also wrong, and not just because it falsely claims that ‘every generation runs out of mineral reserves’. The central premise is also flawed. The Club of Rome did not say we would run out of resources in The Limits to Growth (it is only the internet conspiracy theories that say this). The Club of Rome did not say we will run out of anything. It said, and says, that we are using SOME of the world’s resources too quickly for this to be sustainable for future generations and that the quality of what remains will gradually decline while the price (and energy required) to access them will rise. We will have to spend progressively more on some raw materials, in other words, leaving us less to spend on consumption. (I write this as the Secretary General of the Club of Rome).
He doesn’t seem to have read the book very closely really.
