"This shows that the world cannot sustain the current level of population and industrial growth for more than two decades."

Assuming the current growth of the population and pollution will sustain its current growth for those two decades.

Ah - good old system dynamics! One of my undergrad professors was out of that particular MIT crowd. A little too neo-Malthusian to make complete sense, but if you substitute global warming for their more general concerns about pollution and limited resources you may judge them to be more right than wrong.

The book of Revelation: 666. We passed that year already! ( Revelation 13:15–18 )  (PS  it is a triangular number, the sum of the first 36 numbers (1+2+3+4+5+6+...+36 = 666)
