Richard Heinberg: End of growth - we're already there

I like to share this educational video from Post Carbon Institute

As it is very short and simple it has some simplification which I am less convinced about, in particular I am not certain of the direct link between debt and nature resources. But the main tenet, that growth largely is driven by cheap fossil fuel, I agree totally with. It is also one of the bearing thoughts in my book Garden Earth. I stated the same in the case of Japan in a recent post. This video also concurs with my analysis that we should see growth not as THE PROBLEM but as a symptom
