Richard Heinberg is the author of numerous books on alternative energies,
including his latest:"Peak Everything: Waking Up to the Century of Declines." He’s in Vermont this week for a number of speaking engagements
and he says if nothing else, the outrageous price of oil should
motivate the world to look for alternative energies — not solely because of cost, but more critically, because of supply.
He speaks with VPR’s Mitch Wertlieb.
