Dear Mansoor,

A fantastic debut for ‘The Third Curve’
Congratulations !!!!

Between absolute & reluctant denial, there exists gruding acknowledgement from Corporate India on the finiteness of the earth that we live in.

This can clearly be guaged in a speech made by Harish Manwani – Chairman Hindustan Unilver Ltd in his AGM speech made a few months ago when he emphatically stated…….


There is a changing relationship between humanity & the planet we inhabit. Scientific evidence
has proven beyond any doubt that today we are living beyond our means, not just in a financial
sense but also in an environmental sense.

Today we are consuming the resources of 1.5 planets. The human population took more than
250,000 years to reach the 1 billion mark in the 1800โ€™s. It took more than a century to reach 2
billion in 1927. It then took us only 32 years to reach 3 billion around the 1960 & only 50 years
since then to add another 4 billion to reach 7 billion in 2011.

By 2050 there will be another 2.3 billion more people on earth sharing the same space and
resource. All of them will be in the developing world

If the developing world consumed in the future at the rate the developed world consumed today,
we would need somewhere between 3-5 planets. Obviously, that is not sustainable.

Thanks Navin,
Yes that is the truth and that is what we have to become aware of. Reality does not negotiate ๐Ÿ™‚

Dear Mansoor,

I picked up your book few months back but only recently started reading it. I have to say that though I did see the doom and gloom coming, I did not realize the enormity of the situation until I started reading your book. Though educated and moderately well read, I never thought about how much we are dependent upon oil. It’s just not transportation, everything around is built on oil byproducts – I think this is what makes it more scary.

As I read the book, I started thinking about if I had to live completely independent of oil, would it be possible? Can’t even imagine at this point.

Dear Shashidhar, well glad you connected with core argument. So that is how it is and we have to fall in sync with this energy descent reality. Reality is not going to negotiate with us or make allowance for our delusions :-).
