Professor talks at exponential rate
Bartlett believes such proactivity hinges on ending the widespread "innumeracy" — illiteracy with numbers — with respect to the hard truths of exponential growth.
"He sat down in a chair and you felt like you were talking to your uncle, who by God is going to tell you how the cow eats cabbage," Nation said.
Thanks for all the work you have done over the years in educating us to resource depletion issues. I happened across a paper you wrote from the 70's referencing the publisher of Fishing Facts magazine, George Pazik.
I remember reading Pazik's editorials warning of an oil crisis when I was a teenager, and his insights have stayed with me since.
Here is his very thoughtful response ->
Thanks for writing.
George Pazik was very much a fan and admirer of the work of Hubbert. I once spoke in Milwaukee and George came down to hear me and we had a nice talk. George had a lot of courage to write articles about oil depletion in a fishing magazine.
I will send you an e-mail following this one, and it will have a long attachment which contains reprints of a number of articles I have written on these related subjects. I hope you'll find them interesting.
With best wishes, I am,
