Richard Heinberg, one of the world’s foremost peak oil educators, is finally making a much anticipated speaking tour of Australia in September this year (2012). See the speaking schedule further down this post to find a location near you.
This video introduces you to Heinberg’s concepts, as he discusses The End of Growth.
Heinberg has been honoured with the M. King Hubbert Award for Excellence in Energy Education (2006) and has appeared in several documentaries, most recently Earth 2100, ABC (US) 2009. He has also been interviewed many times, including several times by Peak Moment TV.
My article here includes the episode ‘Suburban Permaculture with Janet Barocco and Richard Heinberg’ , which gives an insight into the man and many of his ideas, as well as some photos from his garden and a round-up of the episode. Well worth watching to see how he not only talks the talk, but walks the walk!
