Richard Heinberg

Leading international expert, educator and author on peak oil, Richard Heinberg, will visit the Sunshine Coast next month as part of a national speaking tour sponsored by Sustainable Population Australia.

Mr Heinberg is a Senior Fellow of the Post Carbon Institute in California and has written 10 books examining issues associated with declining resources and the folly of pursuing infinite growth.

He contends that continuous growth of either population or GDP is impossible in a finite world and both these drivers of unsustainability have now collided with nature’s biophysical limits.

While the conventional wisdom is that we must ‘get the economy growing again’, Richard Heinberg says that strategy is only compounding the problem.
Sustainable Population Australia (SPA) is a national conservation body committed to environmental sustainability with its primary emphasis on population.
It has over 1000 members across all states with patrons including Senator Bob Carr, Professors Tim Flannery, Ian Lowe, Frank Fenner and Drs Mary White and Paul Collins.

The Sunshine Coast is the only regional area to be included on Richard Heinberg’s itinerary. He will speak at the Big Pineapple, Woombye, at 5.30pm on Saturday 15 September and all are welcome to attend.
