Kris De Decker: "Looking Back Towards a Human Powered Future"

On this episode, Nate welcomes back journalist, inventor, and low-tech expert Kris De Decker to take a deeper dive into a more human-powered system on the backside of the carbon pulse. Through both historical and experiential lenses, Kris shares five creative alternatives to current high tech systems - from hot water bottles to electric buses and preventative-focused healthcare systems.

Will society willingly move from a resource intensive growth economy towards a lower energy, human powered economy?
