Carbon Civilisation and the Energy Descent Future
FRI 8 FEB | 3PM-4PM | OFF THE GRID, BIRRARUNG MARR | FREE EVENT
2019 NATIONAL SUSTAINABLE LIVING FESTIVAL
Can renewable energy replace the fossil energy foundations of the carbon civilisation?
A new book maintains we should be preparing for renewable futures - neither energy abundance nor scarcity, but energy sufficiency. For industrial societies, this means navigating energy descent futures.
Josh Floyd (The Rescope Project) and Dr Samuel Alexander (Melbourne Sustainability Society Institute) will discuss the themes explored in their new book:
‘Carbon Civilisation and the Energy Descent Future –
Life beyond this brief anomaly’
Dr Sangeetha (Gigi) Chandrashekeran (University of Melbourne) will also share her insights into decarbonisation and the political-economic complexities involved.
