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 carbon civilisation?
A new book presents a narrative linking energy and society that 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.
Thought-provoking authors and researchers Josh Floyd (The Rescope Project)
and Dr Samuel Alexander (Melbourne Sustainability Society Institute) will lead
an interactive forum discussing 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 moderate and also share insights from her research into decarbonisation and the political-economic complexities involved.
