Dr Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed

Many posts on this blog have been devoted to the holistic analysis of the converging crises of climate change, peak oil and financial instability.  The Crisis of Civilization is a thought-provoking documentary in this vein, investigating how global crises like ecological disaster, financial meltdown, dwindling oil reserves, terrorism and food shortages are converging symptoms of a single, failed global system.  The documentary is based on the book A User’s Guide to the Crisis of Civilization by Dr Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed, head of the London-based Institute for Policy Research & Development.
