Interview with Richard Heinberg • September 17, 2010
Heinberg says we need to begin planning for a "steady state" economy that runs on a lot less energy - most, if not all of it, from renewable sources. But for different reasons he says government leaders, business officials and environmental groups aren't dealing with the problem.
