Author of thirteen books, including Our Renewable Future: Laying the Path for One Hundred Percent Clean Energy, co-authored with David Fridley, Afterburn: Society Beyond Fossil Fuels, and The End of Growth: Adapting to Our New Economic Reality, Richard Heinberg is widely regarded as one of the world’s most effective communicators of the urgent need to transition away from fossil fuels.

With a wry, unflinching approach based on facts and realism, Richard exposes the tenuousness of our current way of life and offers a vision for a truly sustainable future.

Richard frequently presents and appears on radio, television, and in films. He is currently Senior Fellow-in-Residence at Post Carbon Institute, a nonprofit organization dedicated to building more resilient, sustainable, and equitable communities.
