Dr David Fleming was a writer on environmental issues, based in London, England.

He was among the first to reveal the possibility of peak oil's approach and invented the influential TEQs scheme, designed to address this and climate change. He was also a significant figure in the development of the UK Green Party, the Transition Towns movement and the New Economics Foundation, as well as a Chairman of the Soil Association.

Alongside these roles, his wide-ranging independent analysis culminated in two critically acclaimed books, Lean Logic and Surviving the Future . A film about his perspective and legacy - The Sequel: What Will Follow Our Troubled Civilisation? - is slated for release in October 2018, directed by Peter William Armstrong.
