When the Great Correction Comes
Former oil and gas analyst Jan Lundberg says declining energy and climate ends globalization. It’s time to launch the lifeboats of localization and sustainable energy. Why big government can’t fix it — and why do we need big government at all? Lundberg sees an inevitable rebuild from his website culturechange.org.
Lundberg explains peak oil’s implications with oil-industry and market-supply insight showing why "petrocollapse" is more likely to be in store than a smooth transition using less and less oil. Climate change urgency is discussed as well as recent grassroots initiatives to deal with the end of the corporate economy fueled by petroleum.
…the changed oil-industry role of Lundberg Survey is discussed, followed by explanation on the jive of "greener" highway construction. The origin of Jan Lundberg’s work on culture change as an approach to activism is also discussed, followed by personal paths to living the future now, sustainable food security for Portland, Oregon, and more.
…Host Alex Smith says "I check the CultureChange.org website most every day… we have heard from Jan Lundberg that there are unstoppable changes for the better as well."
The show’s music clip is "The Great Correction" by Eliza Gilkyson (from the album "Beautiful World").
