Those in­ter­ested in a sober­ing world view of peak oil and the lim­its to growth would do well to at­tend the pub­lic lec­ture from sus­tain­abil­ity guru Richard Hein­berg this Sun­day, Septem­ber 24. He’s not one to shy away from chal­leng­ing top­ics, and he will cover peak oil, cli­mate change, the end of growth and, more pos­i­tive, tran­si­tion to a low car­bon econ­omy. Hein­berg is a se­nior fel­low of the Post Car­bon In­sti­tute and is widely re­garded as one of the world’s fore­most Peak Oil ed­u­ca­tors. He is the au­thor of 10 books in­clud­ing: End of Growth (Au­gust 2011) and black­out: Coal, Cli­mate, and the Last En­ergy Cri­sis (2009).

Pub­lic talk: 1pm – 3pm Sun­day, 30 Septem­ber 2012 Fisher & Paykel Ap­pli­ances Au­di­to­rium, be­hind the Owen G Glenn Build­ing, The Univer­sity of Auck­land Busi­ness School, Level 0, 12 Grafton Rd.
