‘The End of Growth’ excerpt by Richard Heinberg

This article is an excerpt from Richard’s new book (working title ‘The End of Growth’), which is set for publication in July 2011. Given the urgency and fragility of the global economic crisis, it is being serialized as Richard writes it. This chapter gives the history of events that have lead us to where we are today.

Richard Heinberg is the author of nine books, including The Party’s Over, Peak Everything, and the newly released Blackout, and is widely regarded as one of the world’s most effective communicators of the urgent need to transition away from fossil fuels. With a wry, unflinching approach based on facts and realism, Richard exposes the tenuousness of our current way of life and offers a vision for a truly sustainable future.
