Senior Fellow, Post Carbon Institute

We’ve been borrowing from the past by way of fossil fuels... We’re also borrowing from future generations by way of debt.

He has authored scores of essays and articles and is also the author of 12 books, including some of the seminal works on society’s current energy and environmental sustainability crisis. A broad communicator, Heinberg’s animated videos have also sought in audience with those who wish to be educated about climate disruption and they’ve been viewed by over 1.5 million people.
