Do you have one of these? I get a little obsessed with mine. In fact, I get a little obsessed with all my stuff. Have you ever wondered where all the stuff we buy comes from where it goes when we throw it out? I couldn't stop wondering about that. So I looked it up. And what the textbook said is that stuff moves through a system, from extraction, to production, to distribution, to consumption, to disposal. All together, it's called the materials economy.

Well, I looked into it a little bit more. In fact, I spent 10 years traveling the world, tracking where our stuff comes from and where it goes. And you know what I found out? That is not the whole story.

There is a lot missing from this explanation. For one thing, this system looks like it's fine, no problem. But the truth is it's a system in crisis. And the reason it's a system in crisis is it's a linear system, and we live on a finite planet, and you cannot run a linear system on a finite planet indefinitely. Every step along the way, this
system is interacting with the real world. In real life, it's not happening on a blank white page. It's interacting with societies, cultures, economies, the environment. And all along the way it's bumping up against limits. Limits we don't see here, because the diagram is incomplete.

So let's go back through. Let's fill in some of the blanks and see what's missing. Well, one of the most important things it's missing is people. Yes, people. People live and work all along th
is system. And some people in this system matter a little more than others. Some have a little more say. Who are they?

Well, let's start with the government. Now, my friends tell me I should use
a tank to symbolize the government and that's true in many countries and increasingly in our own. After all, more than 50% of our federal tax money is now going to the military. But I'm using a person to symbolize the government, because I hold true to the vision and values that government should be of the people, by the people, for the people. It's the government's job to watch out for us, to take care of us. That's their job.

Then, along came the corporation. Now, the reason the corporation looks bigger than the government is that the corporation is bigger than the government. Of the 100 largest economies on
/ earth now, 51 are corporations. And as the corporation has grown in size and power, we’ve seen a little change in the government. Well, theyre a little more concerned in making sure everything is working out for those guys than for us.

Ok. So let's see what else is missing from this picture. We start with extraction, which is a fancy word for natural resource exploitation, which is a fancy word for trashing the planet. What this looks like
is we chop down the trees, we blow up mountains to get the metals inside, we use up all the water and we wipe out the animals.

So here, we are running
up against our first limit. We are running out of resources. We are using too much stuff. Now I know this can be hard to hear, but it's the truth / what've got to deal with it. In the past three decades alone, one third of the planet's natural resource spaces have been consumed. Gone. We are cutting, and mining, and hauling and trashing the place so fast that we’re undermining the planet's very ability for people to live here.


Where I live in the United States, we have less than 4% of our original forests left. 40% of the waterways have become undrinkable. And our problem is not just that we're using too much stuff, but we're using more than our share. We have 5% of the world's population, but we are using 30% of the world's resources, and creating 30% of the world's waste. If everybody consumed
at U.S. rates, we would need 3 to 5 planets. And you know what? We've only got one.

So my country's response to this limitation is simply to go take somebody else's. This is the
Third World, which some would say is another word for our stuff that somehow got on somebody else's land. So what does that look like? The same thing, trashing the place. 75% of global fisheries now are fished at or beyond capacity. 80% of the planet's original forests are gone. In the Amazon alone, we're losing 2,000 trees a minute. That is seven football fields a minute. And what about the people who live here? Well, according to these guys, they don't own these resources even if they've been living there for generations. They don't own the means of production and they are not buying a lot of stuff. And in this system, if you don't own or buy a lot of stuff, you don't have value.

Do you have one of these?  I get a little absessed with mine. In fact, I get a little absessed with all my stuff.  Have you ever wondered where all the stuff you buy comes from where go when you throw it out?  I couldn't stop wondering about it. So I look it up. and what the textbook said is its stuff move through a system, from extraction, to production, to distrubition, to consumption, to disposal. All together it's called a materials econemy.
Well, I look into it a little bit more. In fact, I spent 10 years travelling the world, tracking where our stuff comes from and where it goes. And what have I found out? That is not the whole story. There is a lot missing from this explanation. For one thing,  this system looks like that it's fine, no problem, but the truth is it's a system in crisis. And reason that it's a system in crisis is it's a linear system, and we live on a finit planet and you can't run a linear system on a finit planet indefinely. Every step around the way, this system is interacting the real world. In real life, it is not happening on the blank white page. It is interacting with sociaties, cultures,econemies, the invirenment, and all along the way it is bumbing up agaist limits. Limits we don't see here because the diagram is incomplete. So let's go back through, let's fill in some the blank then see what's missing. Well, one of the most important thing missing is people. Yes, people ,people live and work all around the system. Some people in the system matter a little more than others, some have a little more say.  Who are they?
Well, let's start with the government. Then my friends tell me I should use a tank symbolized the government, and that's true and many conturies are increasely in their run. After all,  more than 50% of feneral tax money are going to the military. But i am using a person to symbolized the govern because I hope a true to the version of values the government should be of the people, by the people, for the people. It's the government's job, to watch out of us, to take care of us, that's their job.  Then along came the corporation. Now the reason the corp looks bigger than the government is that the corp is bigger than the government. of the 100 largest econemies on earth now, 51 are corps, and as corps are grown in size and power, we see a little change in government.

and as the corps have grown in size and power, we see a little change in the government. Well, they're a little more concerned in making sure everything working out for those guys than for us.
Ok, so let's see what else is missing from this picture. We start with the extraction, which is the fancy world for nature recource exploretation, which is fancy world for trashing the planet. What this looks like is we chop down the trees, we blow the moutains to get metal inside, and we use up all the water and we wipe out the animals. so here we are runing up agaist the first limit. We are runing out the resources. We are using too much stuff. I know this can be hard to be heard, but it is truth what've got to deal with it.  In the past 3 decades along, one third of the planet nature resource spaces has been consumed. Gone, we are cutting, and mining, and hauling, and trashing the  place so fast that we are undermining the planet very ability for people to live here. Oh, I live in U.S. we have less than 4% of our riginal forest left. 40% of the water way become undrinkable. And our problem is not just we are using too much stuff, but we are using more than our share. We have 5% of world population, but we are using 30 % of world resources, and creating 30% of world waste.  If everybody consumed  U.S. rates, we would need 3-5 planets. As you know what? we have got one .
So, my contury  response to this limitation is simply go take somebody else's. This is the third world which some would say it is the other world for all stuffs that somehow garden, somebody else land. So what does that look like? the same thing,  trashing the place. 75% of goble fishers now  are fished at or beyond capacity. 80% of the planet original forests are gone, and in the Amazon alone, we are losing 2000 trees a mimute. That is 7 football fields a minute.   And what about people who live there? Well, acording to these guys, they don't only own the resource, ever if they have living there for generations. They don't own the means of production and they donot buy a lot stuff,and in this system if you don't own or buy a lot of stuff,you don't have value.

For one thing,this is to looks like it's fine,no prblem.But the truth is,it's a system in crisis.And reason to its system in crisis is it's a linear system and we live on a finite planet ,and you can not run a linear system on a finite planet indefinitely.Every step along the way, this system is interacting with the real world.In real it's not happening on the blank white page, it is interacting with societies, cultures,economies ,the environment,and all along the way it's bumping up aginst limits.Limits we don't see here because the diagram is incomplete.

So let's go back through,let's fill in some of the blanks and see what's missing.Well one of the most important thing missing is people . Yes, people.People live and work all along the system.And some people in the system matter a little more than others,some have a little more say.Who are they?

Well let's start with the government,and my friends tell me the tank to symbolize the government and thats true in many countries and increasingly in our own.after all more than 50% of our fuderal tax is going to the mulitary.But i using a person to symbolize the government because i hold true to the visionand and values the government should be of the people, by the people,for the people.It's the government's job to watch out for us,to take cure of us.That's their job.

Then alongcame the corporation.Now the reason the corporation looks bigger than the government is that the corporation is bigger than the government.Of the 100 largiest economies on earth now,51 are corporations.And as the corporation has grown in size and power,we've seen a little change in the government,while they are a little more concerned in making sure every thing is working out for those guys,then for us. So let's see what else is missing form this picture.We start with extraction,which is a fancy world for natural resource exploitation,which is the fancy world for trashing the planet.

What this look like is wo chop down the trees,we blow mountains to get the mentles inside,we use up all the water ,and we wipe out the animals. So here we are running up aginst our first limit;we are running up our resources;we are using too much stuff.

I know this can be hard to hear but it's the truth we've got to deal with it.In the past three decades along,one third of the planet's natural resources space has been consumed.Gone.We are cutting and mining and hauling and trashing the place so fast were undermining the planet's very ability for people to live here.

Where i live, in United States ,we have less than 4% of our origional forests left.40% of the waterways have become undrinkable.And our problem is not just we are using too much stuff,but we are using more than our share.We have 5% of the world's population,but we are using 30% of the world's resources,including 30% of the world's waste.If everybody consumed at U.S. rates, we will need 3 to 5 planets.And you know what?We've only got one.

So my country response to this limitation is simply go take somebody else's.This is the third world,which some would say,it's another world for our stuff and some had got somebody else's land.So what is that look like? The same thing.Trashing the place.75% of global fishries now are fished at or beyond capacity.80% of the planet's original forest are gone.In the Amozon along we are losing 2000 trees a minite,that is 7 football fields a minite.

And what about the people who live here?Well,according to these guys,they don't own their resouces even they've been living here for generationgs.they don't own the means of production,and they not buy the a lot of stuff.And in this system,if you don't own or buy a lot of stuff,you don't have value.

Do you want these? I got a little obssessed with mine. In fact, I got obssessed with all my stuff. Have you ever wondered all the stuff where they come from or where it goes when they are thrown out? I couldn't stop wondering about that, so I look it up and what the text book says is that a stuff moves from extraction, to production, to distribution, to consumption, to disposal. All together it is called material economy. Well I looked into it a little more. In fact, I spend 10 years travelling the world, tracking where it comes from and where it goes. You know what I found out? That is not the whole story. There's a lot missing from this explanation. For one thing, this system looks like it's fine, no problem, but the truth is it's a system in crisis. The reason why the system is in crisis is it's a linear system and we live in a ??? planet. You can't run a linear system in a ??? planet definitely. Every step away, this system is interacting with the real world. You realize it's not happening on the blank way page, it's interacting with societies, cultures, economies and environment. And all one way it's bumping against limits. Limits we don't see here, because the diagram is incomplete. So let's go back through and let's fill in some blanks and see what's missing. One of the most important things missing is people.
Yes, people, who live and work all along the system. And some of these people matter a little more than the others. Some have a little more to say. Who are they? Well, let's start with the goverment. Now my friends told me I should use a tank to symbolize the goverment that is true in many countries especially for our own. After all more than 50% of our federal tax money is now going to the military. But I use a person to symbolize the goverment, because I hold a true vison of values that the goverment should be by the people, to the people and for the people. It's the goverment job to watch out for us and take care of us. That's their job. Then along came the coperation, now the reason coperation looks bigger than the goverment is that the coperation is bigger than the goverment. Of the 100 largest economies on earth now, 51 are coperations. As the coperation is growing in size and power, we see a little change in goverment whether a little more concern to make sure everthing is working out for those guys than for us. OK, so let's see what else is missing for this picture. We start with an extraction, which is a fancy word for natural resources exploitation, which is a fancy word for transhing the planet. What this looks like is we topple down the trees, we blow out the mountains to get the metals inside, we use out the water and we wipe out the animals. So here, we are running against our first limit. We are running out resources, We are using too much stuff.
I know this can be hard to hear, but it's the truth we got to deal with it. In the past decades alone, one third of the planet's natural resources have been consumed, gone. We're cutting and mining and holing and trashing the place so fast. They are undermined the planet's very ability for people to live here. Where I live in United States, we have less than 4% of our original forest left. 40% of the water ways have become undrinkble. And our problem is not just using too much staff, we're using more than our share. We have 5% of the world's population but we use 30% of the world's resources and creating 30% of the world's waste. If everybody consumes U.S rate, we'll need to 3 to 5 planets, and you know what we've only got one. So my country's response to this limitation is simply going to take somebody else's. This is the 3rd world which someone would say is another world for all our stuff ??? to on somebody else's land . So What exactly looks like is the same thing, trashing the place. 75% of global fish zones are fished at or beyond their capacity. 80% of the planet's original forests are gone. In the Amazon alone we are losing 2000 trees a minute, that is 7 ??? fields a minute. What about people who live here? Well according to these guys, they don't own these resources even they've been living there for generations. They don't mean production and not buy a lot of stuff. In this system, if you don't own or buy stuff, you don't have value.
