Heinberg quoted on ‘overshoot’ at aNewsCafe

September 19, 2017

Post Carbon Fellow Richard Heinberg was quoted in this article on climate change and peak oil at online news source aNewsCafe.com.

From the article:

There’s no point in denying it. The apocalypse is already upon us, we just haven’t noticed because it’s been air-conditioned, up to this point. Even worse, according to author and Post Carbon Institute co-founder Richard Heinberg, a nationally recognized expert on renewable energy, climate change is just one symptom of the apocalypse, which is a systemic crisis brought on by what he calls an overshooting of the earth’s long-term capacity to carry the human species.
