Text from Youtube: Richard Heinberg, author of “The End of Growth” speaks with Vivien Langford from Beyond Zero Radio at his hotel in Sydney, Australia. Richard is currently visiting Australia on a speaking tour sponsored by Sustainable Population Australia and is also appearing at the Festival of Dangerous Ideas. Check out BZE for the full interview coming soon. Continuous growth of either population or GDP is impossible in a finite world. Both these drivers of unsustainability have now run up against Nature’s biophysical limits. Nature is now forcing humanity to a transition, one that is as profound as the transition from gatherer/hunter to settled agriculturalist 10,000 years ago.
