In this week’s Off The Cuff I sit down with Richard Heinberg to discuss:
Power: Richard’s new book
How will humans deal with Earth’s limits to growth?
Can capitalism exist in a de-growth economy?
How solvable an issue is population growth?
In the final stages of writing his newest book, Power: Limits and Prospects for Human Survival, resource management expert Richard Heinberg joins us to share its principal conclusions.
Richard will be offering a few free chapters of the book in advance of its September launch, paired with an online discussion series. If you’re interested in participating, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org asking to “sign me up for Power”
This was an excellent discussion, especially because Richard was game for letting me toss him a few “hot potato” semi-controversial questions about capitalism and population management.
That’s one of the benefits of Peak Prosperity’s premium content; we and our guest experts are able to talk more freely about many of these important challenges than we can in public forums. I hope you’ll enjoy the candor here.
