I. Departure from “The Limits to Growth” I. 『成長の限界』からの出発
Published in 1972 by the Club of Rome, The Limits to Growth warned that if the population and industrial production activities continued to increase, the resultant depletion of resources and deterioration of the environment would cause the growth of humankind to reach its limit within the next 100 years. In spite of that, the global population has continued to increase even after 1970. The following data shows the changes in the substances that support the activities of humankind, the supply of primary energy and the consumption of grain from 1970 onward, in comparison with population changes during the same period. ローマクラブによって1972 年に発表された『成長の限界』は、人口と工業生産活動がこのまま増加し続けると、資源の枯渇や環境の悪化により、100 年以内に人類の成長が限界に達すると警告した。しかし、1970 年以降も世界の人口は増え続けている。人間の活動を支えるエネルギーと穀物消費の1970 年以降の推移を人口とあわせて示す。
