Yes, you should be familiar with all four. There is very little to learn for Simon & the CoR anyway!
The Club of Rome's famous work is 'The Limits to Growth', published in the early 1970s, where they argued that the global population growth limit would be reached within the following 100 years, assuming that the following continued at contemporary rates: population growth, resource depletion, food production, industrialization and pollution. Once the limit is reached, they predicted rapid decline in population and industrial capacity.
