Future Scenarios

  • Apr. 29th, 2009 at 12:41 PM
I just stumbled across an interesting website (also a book, apparently) called Future Scenarios that focuses on the interplay between peak oil and climate change and how they is likely to affect the environment and the human race.

The author, David Holmgren, offers four possible scenarios for the future:

1. Brown Tech (slow oil decline, fast climate change)
2. Green Tech (slow oil decline, slow climate change)
3. Earth Steward (fast oil decline, slow climate change)
4. Lifeboats (fast oil decline, fast climate change)

The site focuses more on speculation than on activism and problem solving designed to actively work towards one or another scenario, but I thought it was very interesting and thoughtfully done.
