During the 20th century, our population grew dramatically and shifted from rural to urban, creating unprecedented energy consumption, food production, and dramatic environmental impacts. The 21st century ushered in a new era of declines in a number of crucial areas:
- Global oil, natural gas and coal extraction
- Availability of fresh water
- Yearly grain harvests
- Economic growth
- Extraction rates for minerals and ores
- Climate stability
Peak Everything addresses the personal, psychological, and cultural challenges we face as nature rapidly dictates our new limits. Richard Heinberg, author of three of the most important books on peak oil, offers a thought-provoking combination of wry commentary and sober forecasting on subjects as diverse as farming and industrial design.
A must-read for individuals, business leaders, and policy makers who are serious about effecting real change.
