Guy McPherson is professor emeritus of natural resources and the environment at the University of Arizona, where he taught and conducted research for twenty award-winning years. He lives in an off-grid,straw-bale house where he puts into practice sustainable  living via organic gardening,raising small animals for eggs and milk,and working with members  of his rural community.

An energetic speaker, he has appeared before countless audiences to speak about the two primary consequences of our fossil-fuel addiction: global climate change and energy decline. His talks highlight the importance of living sustainably, a necessity driven by the ongoing collapse of the environment, industrial economy, and by the arriving shortages of cheap oil.

If you leave one of his talks and are not thinking deeply about the subject,you were not listening.
