The Most IMPORTANT Video You'll Ever See

This is indeed an important video to watch. It's a lecture by a professor emeritus of Physics at Univ of Colorado-Boulder.

He expands on the simple exponential functions that we learned in high school. And applies their consequences to the real world.

One example, a population of 10,000, and a population growth of 7%, will double its population to 20,000 in only 10 years. In 20 years, the same population will be 40,000! And that is not for the metropolitan area. That is for the same land mass! If a city thought it had problems with only 10,000 people, imagine the problems with 40,000!

He also notes how our use of oil is expanding in an exponential function. And that we will soon have serious issues if we don't get things under control.

The implications should blow your socks off.
