AFTERBURN: Living in a Post Carbon World

May 11, 2015


Our guest was Richard Heinberg, author of Afterburn: Society Beyond Fossil Fuels (New Society, 2015).  The book is a collection of his essays and addresses, and we spoke with him about a range of topics, including fracking and peak oil, consumerism and why it’s difficult to persuade people that climate change is a threat, living on borrowed time, local economies, and “the Cooperative Darwinian Movement,” where, Richard says, we can learn to evolve socially and culturally in ways that will allow us to live successfully and sustainably in a post-carbon world.
