In memoriam: Michael C. Ruppert

Richard Heinberg (Post Carbon Institute):

Just three weeks ago I saw Mike for the first time in four years. We talked at a restaurant; then, a couple of days later, I was a guest on his Lifeboat Hour radio show. He had clearly been to hell and back since we last saw each other, but appeared to have come to a better place within himself. He had a couple of big projects on the horizon and gave no hint of the end that he would choose. During the past decade he alerted many thousands of people to the precarious nature of our global, fossil-fueled industrial system, and many of those folks changed their careers or moved to another location in search of more resilience and sustainability. That’s a legacy that deserves enduring thanks.

Who Killed Economic Growth?

Richard Heinberg proposes a startling diagnosis in this short video presented by fine folks at the Post Carbon Institute.


Indeed, there are many issues and nuances left out but this is a good start to answering the how’s and why’s we all need to come to grips with so we can move forward.  You’ll find other issues and those mentioned in the video are addressed in the book from which this material was excerpted: http://www.endofgrowth.com
