Back in December I posted a trailer for The Crisis of Civilization. Based on the work of security analyst and political scientist Dr Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed, this new documentary explores the interconnections between climate change, peak oil, terrorism and our ongoing financial crisis. Mat has also written about Ahmed's work on the connections between peak oil and the Egyptian revolution.
Given the increasingly convincing evidence that no government is prepared for peak oil; that worst-case climate scenarios are looking more and more realistic; and that the Global economic order as we know it may be coming to an end, we thought it might be a good time to talk to Dr Ahmed in a little more detail about how this all fits together.
Update: The chat was held on Thursday 12th of January, 2012. The video below is an archived version of the conversation.
