David Holmgren: Permaculture & Peak Oil: Beyond Sustainability

Classic permaculture talk (2007). David is known for his lectures & his Australian applications. Author of “Permaculture: Principles & Pathways Beyond Sustainability” (2002) . David is co-author with Bill Mollison of the original 1978 book “Permaculture One: A Perennial Agriculture for Human Settlements”. In this 25” video he talks ”about the need to move beyond the lulling hope that 'green tech' breakthroughs will allow world-wide 'sustainable consumption' to the recognition that dwindling oil supplies inevitably mean a mandatory 'energy descent' for human civilization across the planet. He argues that permaculture principles provide the best guide to a peaceful societal 'powering down."
