Richard Heinberg is Senior Fellow-in-Residence of the Post Carbon Institute and is widely regarded as one of the world’s foremost educators on peak oil, energy policy and community resilience.
In this Jamaica Plain Forum, Heinberg explores the opportunities and challenges of a transition to a fossil fuel free future.
Several energy analysts and environmental organizations have formulated plans for transitioning to 100 percent renewable energy. Heinberg, along with David Fridley, staff scientist of the energy analysis program at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, has gathered and assessed those plans. In his talk, Heinberg discusses the future of clean energy and how the characteristics of ~100 percent renewable energy would shape our lives and economy.
