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".

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.
