Chris Martenson is a scientist and former corporate executive that that has obsessively devoted himself to advancing understanding about the three Es and implications for the future. His main body of work, The Crash Course, is a dynamic web-based video presentation that brings together the threads of the "three E's" and explains why and how the next 20 years will be completely unlike the last 20 years. Chris runs a popular website, www.chrismartenson.com, where he showcases up-to-date information about the three Es—with particular focus on the economy and financial system. Chris’s extensive scientific training guides how he thinks—he gathers data, develops hypotheses, and continually seeks to accept or reject them based on the evidence at hand. He lets the data tell much of the story. He also recognizes how inner beliefs influence the paths that we take. Chris has completed a PhD and post doctoral program in neuro-toxicology at Duke University.
