Humanity is entering an era when it's becoming increasingly difficult to obtain the resources it needs -- at the cost it needs -- to power the economic activity it needs.
Sebastopol, CA (PRWEB) June 26, 2014
Scientist-turned-economist Chris Martenson is on a mission to deliver a warning:
"Society is facing a future in which the economic prosperity the world has enjoyed over the past century can no longer continue.
"Over-indebtedness, mal-investment, cronyism, manipulation, and misguided policymaking have all certainly contributed to the current predicament. But its principal causes are much bigger. And much harder to address.
"Simply put, humanity is entering an era when it's becoming increasingly difficult to obtain the resources it needs -- at the cost it needs -- to power the economic activity it needs.
"The trends of resource depletion, escalating mining & drilling costs, species die-offs, emptying aquifers, declining energy yields and the like are increasingly pitting the world's 7 billion people (soon to be 9 billion before 2050) against each other in competition for the remaining biomass and minerals that make industry possible.
"This reality is increasingly visible across the world on a daily basis. It explains the recent resource-based conflicts in Ukraine, Iraq, Africa and other hotspots. It's why the price of oil remains stubbornly high above $100 despite the US shale 'miracle.' It's why the world bee population is mysteriously collapsing (pollinators are needed to grow 80% of US crops)."
As a result, massive changes in store for everyone. Regardless of where they live.
This is why, back right before the 2008 crisis hit, Dr. Martenson released his wildly popular free online video seminar 'The Crash Course.' For millions of people around the world, this video series has served as the single best summation of the issues that created the crisis and will serve to make the next 20 years completely different than the last 20. The Crash Course has now been watched over 15 million times, been translated into over a dozen languages, and published as a book by J. Wiley & Sons (2011). The UN, the UK Houses of Parliament, and numerous US State Assemblies have all hosted Dr. Martenson to discuss its forecasts and how to best prepare for them.
Of course, a lot has changed -- validating much of what Dr Martenson predicted -- since 2008. Which is why Peak Prosperity is excited to announce the release of The 'Accelerated' Crash Course, a brand new free online video that condenses an updated account of the essential insights into under an hour.
This brand new video shines a bright light on the key economic, energy and environmental trends that are defining our future, and the risks we face as a result. But it also offers hope. If conscientious individuals take action now, while there's still time, there's much they can do not only to reduce their personal vulnerability to these threats, but also to step into this new future with newfound optimism.
