About Christopher Clugston
Since 2006, Clugston has conducted extensive independent research into the area of “sustainability,” with a focus on NNR (nonrenewable natural resource) scarcity. NNRs are the fossil fuels, metals, and nonmetallic minerals that enable our modern industrial existence. He has sought to quantify from a combined ecological and economic perspective the extent to which America and humanity are living unsustainably beyond our means, and to articulate the causes, magnitude, implications, and consequences associated with our “predicament.” His research includes the publication of Scarcity – Humanity’s Final Chapter? in 2012, and several analytical updates.
