Peak Oil and Climate Change - Ian Dunlop - ASPO Australia
Rating: 0.0/5 (0 vote cast)
Ian Dunlop is Deputy Convener of the Australian Association for the Study of Peak Oil. Ian gave this talk at the 2011 Amplify Festival. The Amplify Festival is "an investment by AMP in its people, partners and customers. The programme is designed to engage heart and mind, logic and emotion, theory and practice, serious learning and fun." The Emergency Transition to Global Sustainability is the greatest innovation wave in history, Australia just doesn't know it -- yet! Population growth, rapidly increasing consumption and short-termism are triggering the long-anticipated implosion of our conventional market economy -- the immediate symptoms are global warming, peak oil prices, food and water shortages and financial instability. Holistic solutions are essential, yet we still talk in silos, focused on the minutiae of carbon "taxes" and compensation, defending the status quo whilst ignoring the bigger picture. This is the greatest chance we have ever had to set the country on to a genuinely sustainable footing -- we should not waste it. Ian's talk explains how global sustainability connects with each and every one of us and explores how we can all contribute to this do or die scenario.
