Energy and Resources on a Planet Well Past Carrying Capacity

Location: University Classroom Building, room 100

In a free public talk, entitled "Energy, Resources, and Human Demand on a Planet Well Past Its Human Carrying Capacity", energy expert Nate Hagens will address opportunities and constraints after “the coming end of economic growth".


Nate Hagens is the former lead editor of The Oil Drum, a website that provides analysis and discussion of global energy supplies and the future implications of energy decline. He is currently a board member of the Post Carbon Institute, Bottleneck Foundation, the Institute for Integrated Economic Research, and the Institute for the Study of Energy and our Future.

Hagens received his master’s degree in finance from the University of Chicago, and his doctor of philosophy in natural resources from the University of Vermont.
