The Collapsing Bubble: Growth and Fossil Energy

the_collapsing_bubbleA courageous look at the world’s dwindling energy resources. Contending that the energy debate has been cast in the wrong terms, the author suggests that the problem would not be solved by asking: “What energy sources will be available to replace fossil fuels?” but by questioning: “What populations can be supported at a decent standard by the energy sources that will be available after the transition from fossil fuels?” Taking a brave stand, Grant suggests that with a bit of luck—we may be able to create a more harmonious balance with the rest of the biosphere, but at much lower population levels and less consumptive habits.

The Collapsing Bubble: Growth and Fossil Energy is a collection of three NPG Forum papers, The New American Century, The End of Fossil Fuels: Part I – How Long the Twilight, and The End of Fossil Fuels: Part II – Twilight or Dawn?.
