Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) October 29, 2009
Richard Heinberg, perhaps best known as a leading educator on Peak Oil (the point at which we reach maximum global oil production), joins host John Schmidt on VoiceAmerica's ZOOM'D Leadership on Monday, November 2 at 11 AM Pacific Time/ 2 PM Eastern Time to explore the tenuousness of our current way of living, describe how we are trapped by both high and low oil prices, and provide a vision for a truly sustainable future.
Richard is widely regarded as one of the world's most effective communicators about the urgent need to transition away from fossil fuels. He has used a wry, unflinching approach based on facts and realism to convey this position in nine books, including The Party's Over, Peak Everything, and the recent Blackout: Coal, Climate and the Last Energy Crisis. His latest book brings critical information to the debate about coal as an energy source in the face of climate change. Blackout sends a powerful message: With less than twenty years before US coal production peaks and no viable means to produce "clean coal," the need to transition entirely to renewable energy is more critical than ever.
As Senior Fellow-in-Residence at Post Carbon Institute, Richard speaks out about Peak Oil and the resulting devastating impact it will have on our economic, food, and transportation systems. He is a sought-after speaker who has presented around the world and has been featured in many documentaries, including End of Suburbia and Leonardo DiCaprio's film The 11th Hour. Richard has appeared on ABC's Good Morning America, Canadian Broadcasting Television, BBC, Australian Broadcasting Corporation, and Al Jazeera, as well as numerous radio programs (national NPR) and print publications (TIME magazine).
ZOOM'D Leadership explores the importance of changing the way we pursue the future. ZOOM'D takes listeners out to the big picture, in to the up-close-and-personal, and toward a future of constant renewal. Whether focused on the economic crisis, energy, climate change, or sustainability at large, the show examines patterns at play, drivers behind them, and perspectives of leadership.
