Four decades ago, the futurist think tank, The Club of Rome, commissioned a group of young MIT scientists to create the first computer model to analyze the impact of unlimited growth on Earth’s finite natural resources. The result was the controversial best seller The Limits to Growth. Its central thesis: that human activity, if left unchecked, will eventually surpass the carrying capacity of the planet, and that this overshoot could lead to the collapse of global life support systems. How far we have traveled down this path is the subject of Last Call.
Filmmaker Enrico Cerasuolo details the original report with vintage footage and gathers its surviving authors and their mentors to assess where we are now and what we must do immediately to forestall the ultimate ecological crash they originally predicted.
A community discussion follows the film, facilitated by Morey Wolfson. Morey organized the inaugural Earth Day celebration in Denver, and served two Colorado governors as an energy policy advisor. He is a member of Pasadena’s Environmental Advisory Commission.
