[ See original article to listen to the talk. ]

Editorial Notes: Global Public Media has many other resources on Peak Oil and related issues. The Nov/Dec issue of Hopedance magazine (a co-sponser of the event) is devoted to Peak Oil. The event occurred Nov 27 and this speech was posted Dec 31. The steam (.ram) audio was awkward to listen to on my 56K modem. -BA
