Peak everything : waking up to the century of declines
R. Heinberg. New Society Publishers, Gabriola, BC, (2007)
"The 21st century ushered in a new era of declines in a number of crucial areas: global oil, natural gas and coal extraction; availability of fresh water; yearly grain harvests; economic growth; extraction rates for minerals and ores; and climate stability." "Peak Everything addresses the personal, psychological, and cultural challenges we face as nature rapidly dictates our new limits. Richard Heinberg offers a combination of commentary and forecasting on subjects as diverse as farming and industrial design."--BOOK JACKET.
