Richard Heinberg, senior fellow of the Post Carbon Institute and author of "The End of Growth" joins me today to discuss the end of consumerism.

                from Fent's Post Productions / Added

                July 27, 2010 Dr. Nate Hagens presents evidence of the profound changes coming to us all in the next few years. As a well-known authority on resource depletion, he provides an in-depth analysis of energy and economics. He calls for a wider perspective by showing the intersections and interactions of energy and environment with human behavior and finance and debt.

                  from Fent's Post Productions / Added

                  In part two, we hear how Nate believes that the country is insolvent, and that there will be an economic step-down which must be managed to prevent a major societal disruption. The currency, in his opinion, will collapse within the next ten years. Sexual selection, he reports, seems to be a strong subconscious driver of economic choices and consumerism. Sex sells... A lot! However, statistics show that having more stuff does not equal more happiness and that people always want more. Addict behavior? Yes. Dopamine rules! Hope, he indicates, seems to lie in the true sustainability of human well-being: Financial capital is only a MARKER for natural, human, social and built capital. THAT, says Dr. Hagens, is our REAL capital.

                    from Fent's Post Productions / Added

                    Part three is audience Q&A. Nate stresses that "when the substance hits the fan", the social impact of the coming changes is a major concern. Meanwhile, other issues discussed include: *The internet shortens attention spans and creates internet addiction. *Though the dollar may be the last currency standing, the USA is not the only country to blame for the world climate and economic conditions. *Though it is in our nature to compete, elimination of excessive, wasteful consumerism would greatly slow resource depletion. *Basic goods should be supplied at the community and state levels. *Rich people should buy local land to re-skill youth in food production. *Local currency should be implemented almost everywhere to compliment local expertise. *There will be a need for a dispersal of now-concentrated industries and populations. If we keep ourselves fed, says Wes, we can work through the other changes. *The pending coal plant decision is, Scott says, a legacy decision which has garnered national attention. The western Kansas coal plant would leave no room on the power grid for wind energy. Money for the plant was "manufactured" for energy that is not needed. Next in this speaker series, Angus Wright is the guest on Wednesday, September 22nd.

                    • Part 1: "Getting Beyond Economic Growth", Richard Heinberg, Helena Norberg-Hodge


                      from Fent's Post Productions / Added

                      Assembled here from telephone and web media, this Orion Magazine event was presented live on October 18, 2011. Part 1 of 3: Getting Beyond Economic Growth Here, long-time associates Richard Heinberg and Helena Norberg-Hodge, along with Orion Magazine’s Erik Hoffner, discuss what Heinberg calls “a basic turning point in human history”. As energy and food prices escalate and debt levels explode, paths that used to bring economic expansion now go nowhere, says Heinberg. There will be no economic recovery from the current recession, he says, but we can only survive as a race if we give up on the futile pursuit of “growth at any cost”. As the author of eleven books related to economics and natural resources and as a fellow at the Post Carbon Institute, he has appeared in numerous documentaries including the 2011 release, “The Economics of Happiness” produced by Helena Norberg-Hodge. She made this film on 7 continents over 6 years and has for 30 years written and studied about the destructive path of globalization and the “military-industrial complex”. As founder of the International Society for Ecology and Culture (ISEC), she calls out the global growth economy and stresses not only the urgent need to localize economies but shows how localization is spreading and practiced all over the world. Here in part one, we hear Heinberg read from the introduction of his newest book, “The End of Growth”. Resource depletion and environmental impacts from extraction and use of these resources is leading to snowballing costs and the inability of our current financial system to adjust to these factors. Add to that the system’s inability to service the enormous debt and there is no way to return to economic growth, ever. “This recession isn’t like others that we’ve had,” says Heinberg. Both Norberg-Hodge and Heinberg address the current “Occupy Movement”, he having sent 100 free copies of his book to the Wall Street protestors, but stressing that the protestors need to understand the complexity of the crisis. Norberg-Hodge brings a worldly view from her decades of work in the peripheral corners of the globe such as India, Tibet and her homeland of Sweden. She has documented the changes brought by globalization to localized economies. She calls for re-regulation of global trade, pointing out how local goods cost more than the same goods shipped from the other side of the world. “We are being strangled by this centralized global economy,” she states. She points to a “gross ignorance”, not evil intent, as the problem with giant transnational banks and corporations. -RF, FPPLLC Oct. 2011
