The end of growth

Richard Heinberg is visiting Australia once again, this time to talk about and promote his latest book, The End of Growth.

If you don’t know who Richard Heinberg is, then you aren’t peak oil aware and you should be, so go and do some Googling and find out what it’s all about and why, (if you care about your future), you should be starting to prepare now.

Of course, if you’re growing your own food and attempting to become self-sufficient in all your worldly needs, even without peak oil knowledge, then you are already preparing, so 10 out of 10 for you.

Richard spoke recently to an audience in Adelaide and someone has put the video up on YouTube.  It’s one of his best efforts and that’s saying something, because he’s done so much to wake people up to the energy crisis that’s coming. This talk is not strictly about peak oil but growth, and why it can’t continue. His explanation of the financial/debt crisis is one of the best I’ve heard, beating even Chris Martenson’s Crash Course:

    Watched it and thought it was a good explanation of a possible reality shift. Though I think like all dinosaurs, global economies probably won’t want to give up their domination of resources. It seems to be in our history, to start another crusade before we make amends with our mistakes.

    Very thought provoking talk though. Full of logic.

    That’s why all of us “listeners” are hell bent on trying to effect change in our own lifetimes and not waiting for our governments to kick in. Big business is NEVER going to come to the party unless it comes with a solid party bag of paydirt for them so we have to tunnel underneath them and undermine their strangleholds…consider us as tiny little ants moving grains of earth bit by bit till suddenly the earth above can’t support the monster any more and suddenly it topples and falls. Grassroots I LOVE you! 🙂
