For the 50th anniversary, we are going to have a book but in the meantime here is a video from Jorgen Randers, one of the authors of the 1972 report.
We often hear Dennis Meadows (other author) in the media but little Jorgen Randers and the story is noticeably different: a little more upbeat, even if nothing is rosy.

It's in English, I'm not bilingual but with the subtitles and a DIY level in English, we manage to follow.
We will see a new simulation from 1980 on a new model called Earth4 and no longer world3.
CO2 is integrated into this new model.
