Richard Heinberg Keynote speech at Chicago Great Lakes Bioneers conference Nov. 2, 1012. Recorded for Radio Ecoshock by Kelly Pierce of the Chicago Independent Media Center
Eye-popping, jaw-dropping, - I'm out of words to describe the tsunami of agencies and experts admitting our troubles are bigger than our brains.
But this week we're going to step back from brink. I want to explore what it means. But who can assemble the currents of climate change, peak energy, and a delusional economy into a big picture? Richard Heinberg, Senior Fellow at the Post Carbon Institute is one of the few who consistently keeps track of all three.
I'll start by calling Richard up about a very big new book, and then we'll hear his assessment from his keynote speech at the Great Lakes Bioneers Conference in Chicago.
I knew some of the facts Richard brings out, but I didn't know how these forces of collapse interact, or when.
