We are living in an age of unprecedented change, with a number of crises converging. Sever weather disruptions, global economic instability, declining biodiversity, resource wars, have all stemmed from the availability of cheap, non-renewable fossil fuels. Global oil, gas and coal production is predicted to irreversibly decline in the next 10 to 20 years, and severe climate changes are already taking effect around the world. The coming shocks are likely to be catastrophic if we do not prepare.
