Product Unavailable
The price of oil is currently six times as high as five years ago, and will double within the next two years. We're all aware of the negative aspects of being so dependent on oil and you can't ignore the affects on our planet from its abundant use. Even with the more advance western nations taking a stance on alternative energy sources and curbing emissions, it's the emerging markets, such as China and India, which in just a few years will cause a gigantic rise in demand. After nearly a century of an oil-fueled economy, we simply must switch to a new economic model. Our thirst for this, one of our most valuable resources, looks like it simply cannot be quenched. But is it possible to live without oil? Which best practices are available now? What trends and developments are to be expected? Two expert futurologists join forces to give us the answers in "Living Without Oil". Adjiedj Bakas and Rob Creemers reveal seven megatrends in this stirring book sure to inspire readers.
Adjiedj Bakas is a highly acclaimed futurologist, author and speaker. He researches social, cultural, economic, technological and spiritual trends and interprets these for an array of clients. He is the author of Megatrends Europe which sold more than 100,000 copies worldwide. Adjiedj presents around 250 made-to-measure speaking engagements internationally each year and is known as an 'optimist' (CNN), 'inspiring' (BBC), 'provocative' (TV2 Journal Denmark), 'a true citizen of the world' (Times of India) and 'Europe's best trend watcher' (Die Welt). Rob Creemers worked in the IT-sector since the early eighties for companies like Siemens and Olivetti as production control manager. In 1990 he believes 'the world of PC' in which he is working will change radically and decides to shift his focus to 'trendwatching'. In 1993 he sets up TechnoTrends. As a trendwatcher and market-analyst he now keeps a close eye on ICT, technology, climate and energy, population-ageing and globalisation.
