David Fleming November 2010

At recent events I have played clips from interviews with the late, great David Fleming, and a few people have asked me to make the full footage available. So here it is:


22nd November 2006 – Schumacher College Earth Talk: “Lean Energy: A Practical Guide to the Energy Descent”

(courtesy of Schumacher College, after some hard digging through their archives!)


4th August 2009 – Interview on peak oil in his flat in Hampstead


4th November 2010 – Interview on ‘Lean Logic’ and much else, in an oak tree!

(audio only – courtesy of the wonderful Henrik Dahle of Uptrees)

If anyone has access to additional recordings of David, I’d love to hear from you.

And by the way, here’s a beautiful at-a-glance summary of the reviews for his posthumous books to date. A great start!
