More from Less

I finally got Andrew McAfee's book More from Less from the library. (Later addendum: One criticism of the book is that it doesn't do a balanced accounting of the US economy. Here is a reply.)

One highlight of the book is to give perspective on just how wrong so many people have been in the past. Andrew writes: "To give an idea of the prevailing mood, beliefs, and predictions of the mainstream environmental movement around [the original 1970] Earth Day, here are a set of quotes [screenshot below] that I find representative. They read to me like dispatches from a society in a panic attack."
