The 20th century saw unprecedented growth in population, energy consumption and food production. As the population shifted from rural to urban, human impacts on the environment increased dramatically. The 21st century ushered in an era of declines, including: oil, natural gas and coal extraction yearly grain harvests; climate stability; economic growth; fresh water; and, minerals and ores, such as copper and platinum. To adapt to this profoundly different world, we must begin now to make radical changes to our attitudes, behaviors and expectations. Now in paperback and featuring a new author preface and discussion guide, "Peak Everything" addresses many of the cultural, psychological and practical changes we will have to make as nature dictates our new limits. This landmark work from Richard Heinberg, author of three of the most important books on Peak Oil, touches on vital aspects of the human condition at this unique moment in time. A combination of wry commentary and sober forecasting on subjects as diverse as farming and industrial design, this book describes how to make the transition from 'The Age of Excess' to 'The Era of Modesty' with grace and satisfaction, while preserving the best of our collective achievements. "Peak Everything" is a must-read for individuals, business leaders and policy makers serious about effecting real change.
