Second hour: Kevin interviews Jan Lundberg, who says yes, industrial civilization is doomed, and yes, that’s a good thing. You might say he’s the anti-Tarpley.
Jan C. Lundberg is a speaker, writer, publisher, known for running what was widely considered “the bible of the oil industry” for the U.S., Lundberg Survey Inc. In 1979 the firm predicted the Second Oil Shock. After 14 years there, Jan left for-profit work to found the nonprofit Sustainable Energy Institute, now Culture Change. For over twenty years he has studied peak oil, energy alternatives, and conservation based primarily on grassroots change in lifestyle. Demonstration projects include Sail Transport Network and Pedal Power Produce, and the Auto-Free Times magazine (now CultureChange.org). Educated in Europe and on the high seas, he has observed diverse cultures which have contributed to his world view and musical compositions. His eco-rock song “Have a Global Warming Day” was heard on CNN-International.
