In retrospect, they were prescient. At the time, they were ignored by the powers who needed to listen to them most. In 1972, an international group of futurists and scientists from MIT published a bestselling book, warning that global exponential growth could not be sustained by the environment. Last Call uses a wide array of period archive and interviews to tell the story of the writing of The Limits to Growth, the research project which took on the future of the world as its focus. At the time of publication, the scientists behind it were all optimists – after all, this was a totally manageable problem that simply took human action to solve. Looking back at forty years of inaction they can no longer show such surety. In the midst of a global environmental crisis, governments are finally seeing the need for action – but is it too late?
