This Paul Gilding keynote is an honest discussion about the future of the Earth, which he claims is overpopulated by both people and their things.

The Australian speaker is an author and an advocate for climate change and economical sustainability who has advised some of the world's top CEOs.

He begins his speech with four powerful words: "the earth is full." He states that the planet's resources are on the cusp of becoming expunged. While the human race is extremely innovative, they have also created too many objects for the planet to support.

While this seems to be a dismal message, he does promise that with proactive measures and a departure from living a life of unnecessary abundance, the human race can overcome everything that is about to be thrown at them.
