Trapped by Fossil Fuels

Richard Heinberg

Richard Heinberg, Senior Fellow-in-Residence at Post Carbon Institute and author of nine books including The Party’s Over, Peak Everything, and the recently released Blackout, joins ZOOM’D for a provocative review of the ever-growing urgency to transition away from fossil fuels. With an unflinching approach to facts and realism, Richard explores the tenuousness of our current way of living, describes how we are trapped by both high and low oil prices, and places an exclamation point on Peak Oil and the devastating impact it will have on economic, food, and transportation systems. Along with a sobering view of reality, Richard provides a vision for a truly sustainable future—and stresses the importance of building resilience in preparation for very challenging times to come.
