Our Renewable Future

What will society look like when we rely solely on renewable energy? What will it take to realize this transformation? On this episode of Locus Focus we continue last month's discussion with Richard Heinberg, author of Our Renewable Future, about the challenges facing us as we make this necessary but difficult transition from fossil fuels to 100% renewable sources of energy.

Richard Heinberg is the author of thirteen books, including some of the seminal works on society’s current energy and environmental sustainability crisis. He is Senior Fellow of the Post Carbon Institute and is regarded as one of the world’s foremost advocates for a shift away from our current reliance on fossil fuels. He has authored scores of essays and articles that have appeared in such journals as Nature Journal,Reuters, Wall Street Journal, The American Prospect, Public Policy Research, Quarterly Review, Yes!, and The Sun; and on web sites such as Resilience.org, TheOilDrum.com, Alternet.org, ProjectCensored.com, and Counterpunch.com.
