A world is dying but the new one is not born yet. Even if we all know oil is a non-renewable energy, we still don’t really believe it and close our eyes to this reality thus not taking efficient actions to find a solution. Many think –and they may not be wrong– that our technological capacities could save us.
Nevertheless, we will certainly not live as we do now. Colin Campbell (Ireland) founder of ASPO, an association studying the state of oil resources. Nate Hagens (USA) studying economy and environment at Vermont University. Bruce Robinson (Autralie) economist. Edward Schreyer (Canada) expert in hydroelectric technology. Pierre Radanne (France) former head of ADAME. Hervé Hempf (France) author of several books dealing with political ecology. All these people from different circles tell us about what tomorrow’s world will be made of.
