Richard Heinberg on the Limitations of Growth with Peak Oil


Another feature from YouTube. This time, Richard Heinberg, author of the acclaimed ‘The Party’s Over’ and Senior Fellow with the Post Carbon Institute presents a video (via The Nation’s YouTube site) on Peak Oil and the limitations of growth. Exponential growth may be a thing of the past now resource depletion appears to have become a real possibility. Are we looking at the collapse of our Complex Society?
(The video is about 25 minutes long but is worth a watch!)

About Owen Law

My pen-name is ‘Owen Law’ (real name: Nicholas Davies.) I’m a science fiction writer specialising in dystopian/apocalyptic visions of the future. I’m from Shropshire, England (on the borders with Wales) and I’m in my forties. I have a background in public services and training. I’ve been working on my first novel, Dragon Line, since 2008. I’ve also written several short stories, one of which you can find on this blog (‘Matilda Leviathan‘). I now reside on the border of Shropshire and Wales, and my interests include writing (of course!), current affairs and environmental issues.
