As can be seen in this research paper from the University of Melbourne, the historical record of the last four decades corresponds well with the the standard, or "business as usual," scenario from the The Limits to Growth for the same period, so the opinion that the 1972 report is wrong because civilization didn't collapse a few decades ago (a prediction which was never made by Limits to Growth, as you can see in the linked text) does not hold up.

On the other hand, this paper from an Israeli futurist offers some plausible methods of dealing with the problems of energy, pollution, and population while acknowledging the challenges outlined in The Limits to Growth.
