I’ve been reading Richard Heinberg since “The Party’s Over”, and PCI is a great continuation of the work he and others started years ago. At times it’s hard for me to stay positive on the subject of global warming, and I really appreciate the honest and detailed information in PCI publications.What issues concern you the most?
I’m most concerned that the vast majority of people and governments of the world seem to hardly give a thought to the rapid global warming we’re seeing — it’s not even on their radar. We don’t have much time left for that view to change.
PCI is the only group I know of in the country that integrates concerns about ecology and climate with the fundamental facts of peak everything, limits to growth and the reality of depletion. Systems thinking and cooperative consciousness will be needed to mitigate the downslopes. Post Carbon Institute has done some of the best work on the planet regarding these interconnections.What issues concern you the most?
Overshoot. Overpopulation. Overconsumption. Peak and Climate. Denial and scapegoating. How militarism blocked efforts to deal with these crises of civilization.
Peak Choice: cooperation or collapse
I have read many of Richard Heinberg’s books, which are inspirational and informative. PCI needs funds.
PCI provides sharp and deep insight. Resilience is unique when it comes to communicating the challenges and solutions ahead of us.What issues concern you the most?
Climate, energy and ecology
I felt that Post Carbon Institute were effective and had a wide reach. Richard Heinberg is not sugarcoating the truth, being honest about the present situation, while offering solutions, however unlikely it may be that they will ever happen.
I heard Richard Heinberg’s talk last year “on creating resilient communities in the face of climate change” and agree with most of his premises and conclusions about building resilient communities.What issues concern you the most?
How to motivate a political change so the focus is less on minor tweaks to avoid climate change and more on building resilience in my community (and others) to climate change and other such threats.
Because your work offers a voice of reason and hope in a world plagued by the hubris of Infinite Growth on a Finite PlanetWhat issues concern you the most?
Population Overshoot & Resource Depletion
You have an incredibly competent staff. They provide globally relevant analyses and proposals for facing the climate change and the peak oil issues – the best I could find on the Internet. And they are doing that in the country that denies them (it adds a moral dimension to they work)! For me it all started with Richard Heinberg’s Museletter long time ago, and only get better with Post Carbon Institute.What issues concern you the most?
How to overcome denial phase in our societies regarding climate change and end of growth.
You do some good work. Especially you make it clear we have a system problem.
Richard Heinberg had been a great influence on me. I’ve read many of his books and have taken his class about resilient communities. I think the info you provide is crucial for living in our dark times.What issues concern you the most?
Human ignorance and arrogance! I hope and pray that we can learn to live in harmony with nature.
