[Video] Ian Dunlop – Transistion: Peak Oil and Climate Change

by on January 19, 2012


If you don’t have a sustainable environment, you don’t have an economy.” Ian Dunlop

Ian Dunlop is Deputy Convener of the Australian Association for the Study of Peak Oil. The Emergency Transition to Global Sustainability is the greatest innovation wave in history, Australia just doesn’t know it — yet!

Population growth, rapidly increasing consumption and short-termism are triggering the long-anticipated implosion of our conventional market economy — the immediate symptoms are global warming, peak oil prices, food and water shortages and financial instability. Holistic solutions are essential, yet we still talk in silos, focused on the minutiae of carbon “taxes” and compensation, defending the status quo whilst ignoring the bigger picture. This is the greatest chance we have ever had to set the country on to a genuinely sustainable footing — we should not waste it.
