Club of Rome
The first report to the club, The Limits to Growth was published in 1972. Its computer simulations suggested that economic growth could not continue indefinitely because of resource depletion. The 1973 oil crisis increased public interest in this problem. The report went on to sell 30 million copies in more than 30 languages, making it the best-selling environmental book in history.
