On Friday’s Sex And Politics, I’ll be talking to Richard Heinberg. Richard is Senior Fellow-in-Residence of the Post Carbon Institute and has written extensively on the topic of Peak Oil, authoring 11 books on the topic since he began speaking about it in 2002. We’ll be focusing on his book Snake Oil: How Fracking’s False Promise of Plenty Imperils Our Future. We’ll be talking about oil and natural gas depletion, and the impact that escalating energy prices will have on the world economy.
The show starts at 6 PM and you can listen in to our webcast on My WBCR or tune in to our AM channel at 1090 AM.
Our interview is in advance of the Global Frackdown–on Saturday, over 200 organizations worldwide are participating in the Global Frackdown, an international day of protests on October 11, 2014, calling for an end to fracking.
UPDATE, October 11, 2014
Here’s a link to the Sex and Politics podcast site—I’ve uploaded the show and you can listen in. My interview with Richard Heinberg starts after the first hour, but there’s also a great discussion with Gene Russianoff, a NYC advocate for subway and bus riders for the last 30+ years.
