Transitioning to a Post Carbon Society in the Age of Denial  

Wednesday, August 30, 2017 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Join us for an evening with Richard Heinberg and the staff of the Post Carbon Institute, who recently moved their office to Corvallis. Heinberg is one of the world’s foremost advocates for a shift away from our current reliance on fossil fuels. He is the author of 13 books including The End of Growth (2011), Afterburn (2015), and most recently Our Renewable Future: Laying the Path for One Hundred Percent Clean Energy co-authored with David Fridley (2016).  His lecture and discussion will focus on grassroots action to build resilience at the community level.

Heinberg has authored scores of essays and articles that have appeared in journals including Nature, Reuters, Wall Street Journal, The American Prospect, Public Policy Research, Quarterly Review, Yes!, and The Sun; and on web sites such as Resilience.org, TheOilDrum.com, Alternet.org, ProjectCensored.com, and Counterpunch.com. He has delivered hundreds of lectures on energy and climate issues to audiences in 14 countries, addressing policy makers at many levels, from local City Councils to members of the European Parliament. He is a recipient of the M. King Hubbert Award for Excellence in Energy Education, and in 2012 was appointed to His Majesty the King of Bhutan’s International Expert Working Group for the New Development Paradigm initiative. 

Spring Creek Project is co-sponsoring this lecture with the Post Carbon Institute and the Corvallis Sustainability Coalition.
