How will we react to the upcoming energy era?
If we consider that a barrel of oil contains the same energy as 4.5 years of human muscle labor, our future access to energy will define what we can and can’t do as individuals, nations, and as a global human culture.
During this lecture, Nate Hagens will discuss how the way we react to the coming era of harder to extract and more costly fossil fuels will be combined with newer, cleaner but more stochastic energy types will influence all of our lives.
This keynote lecture will be followed by the screening of the documentary Game Over: Kasparov and the Machine.
