A manifestation of the change in consciousness needed to shift away from Eisenstein's ascent-style narrative (growth, exploitation, pollution) will involve a new political movement, called something like the "contract, relocalize, earth-centered, simplify and conserve" party, which could include disenfranchised members of either of the 2 major political parties in the USA, both of which are captivated by the archaic narrative.

@sadol1: oil industry didn't come up with the insight of peak oil - they've hated that fact and tried to ignore. But reality won't let them. If oil is renewable as you speculate, it takes enormous amounts of time to happen so it won't rescue us. And even if it did it wouldn't address global climate disruption. The old economy simply isn't workable much longer.

So what happens after your half century supply runs out? You really think that Brazil will keep it all for your own use and not sell it to the world demand?

Wonderful interview. Its so easy to get lost in the dark with all the looming problems. It is wonderful to see ways we can come together to to work on a positive future and it all goes badly to have new directions ready to implement. Thank you also for taking us beyond just the financial. Love your work.

It's also true that our beliefs are determined by our actions. Narratives are always fictions. Why are you surprised? Looking for new narratives is a task for those who seek to be the leaders of the new order, the new high priests.Maybe we have to get rid of narratives that deceive us.

pick oil is BS, here in brazil we found the biggest oilfield in our history, enough for brazilian consunption for at least half a century, peak oil is bs from oil industry to make it more expansive simple as that
