Since 2006, Chris Clugston has conducted extensive research into industrialism and its evolution, with a focus on NNRs (nonrenewable natural resources) – the finite and non-replenishing fossil fuels, metals, and nonmetallic minerals that enable our industrial existence; and increasingly pervasive global NNR scarcity, and its implications for industrialism and industrial humanity. His other writings include: "Industrialism – Our Commitment to Impermanence", and "Scarcity – Humanity’s Final Chapter?"
