The MIT scholars under Dennis Meadows came to four core conclusions: 1) there are limits to growth on a finite planet, 2) the economy and the population are now growing exponentially, 3) exceeding the limits will lead to a collapse of industry, agriculture, and the population, and 4) an orderly withdrawal is possible and collapse averted through a radical turning away from the growth course.

The Systemic MURDER Of Philando Castile: One Yr. Later
To believe Jeronimo Yanez, you would have to believe that Philando Castile, a law-abiding, peaceful cafeteria manager at a local elementary school who had a concealed-carry permit, was for some unknown reason bent on murdering the police officer who had pulled him over because of an alleged faulty brake light.
