Author of fourteen books, including Power: Limits and Prospects for Human Survival, The End of Growth: Adapting to Our New Economic Reality, and The Party’s Over: Oil, War and the Fate of Industrial Societies, 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 at Post Carbon Institute, a nonprofit organization dedicated to building more resilient, sustainable, and equitable communities.
