Episode 2 of SSF’s Implications for the Future Series: Sixty Minutes with Richard Heinberg

November 29, 2021 – 1:00 to 2:00 PM ET

In the Second Episode in the series Richard Heinberg, Senior Fellow and Energy Analyst at the Post Carbon Institute, joins Ed in a discussion about the urgent need to transition to not just a different energy regime but a different basis for human habitation on the planet. The conversation features Richard’s new book, Power: Limits and Prospects for Human Survival.

Richard is a renowned author and expert on transitioning away from fossil fuels, a significant factor in our climate crisis. In Power, Richard looks deeply at the core of humanity’s problems and warns that we must tamp down the overuse and abuse of power. By power, he means more than energy. One species among millions has become powerful enough to threaten mass extinction and disrupt the Earth’s climate.

Are we prepared to do whatever is necessary to prevent environmental and economic collapse? Join us on November 29th to engage in a conversation with Richard Heinberg on finding the power to save the planet.
The Security and Sustainability Forum‘s new webinar series, Implications for the Future, examines the implications of actions taken now on the planet’s future health and human well-being. Each 60-minute session hosts a global leader in a one-on-one session with SSF Executive Director Edward Saltzberg.
