GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Richard Heinberg, Senior Fellow of the Post-Carbon Institute, will speak at 6 p.m. March 14 in the Pugh Hall Ocora at the University of Florida.

Heinberg’s talk, titled “The End of Growth,” explores whether the recent economic meltdown and recession signal the end of economic growth, a new era of financial instability, peak oil and climate change. Heinberg is the author of 10 books, including “Powerdown” and most recently, “The End of Growth.”

This speech is part of the UF College of Liberal Arts and Sciences’ “Paths to Sustainability” Grimes Lectures, and is co-sponsored by the UF Office of Sustainability. The lectures are free and open to the public.

The next Grimes Lecture features Lara Galinsky, author of “Work on Purpose,” who will speak on “Creating a Career with Impact” on April 10 in Hough Hall, Room 150.
