"Energetic Limits to Economic Growth" Brown et al, BioScience 61 p. 19 - 26 (January 2011). 8-page, peer-reviewed paper --- If you are interested in this important topic, this paper by Brown et al. is a must-read. Partial abstract (quoting): "We demonstrate a positive scaling relationship between per capita energy use and per capita gross domestic product (GDP) both across nations and within nations over time. Other indicators of socioeconomic status and ecological impact are correlated with energy use and GDP. We estimate global energy consumption for alternative future scenarios of population growth and standards of living. Large amounts of energy will be required to fuel economic growth, increase standards of living, and lift developing nations out of poverty."
