Building a world of
resilient communities.

MAIN LIST

 

Got plans for the next few weeks?

[To] make sure that anyone who can make these conferences, especially the one-day ones, knows about them..

We also have a new meeting to plug: the Petrocollapse conference in New York City on Wednesday, October 5. Peakguy also discusses it on Peak Oil NYC.

(Original post) A quick reminder that the Second US Conference on "Peak Oil" and Community Solutions is happening this weekend. The speaker list is here. Keynote speakers include Richard Heinberg, author of Powerdown: Options and Actions for a Post-Carbon World and The Party's Over: Oil, War and The Fate of Industrial Societies and Michael Shuman, author of Going Local: Creating Self-Reliant Communities in a Global Age. Also speaking is well known rabble-rouser Jan Lundberg.

This conference is very much out on the sustainability/community end of the peak oil spectrum, rather than the supply/technology or economics ends (can a spectrum have three ends?) You can check out last year's proceedings. Anyway, I'm planning on making the trek over to Yellow Springs, Ohio (assuming my airline stays in business long enough), and will file a report. Let me know if any other ODers are going to be there and we can hook up.

And if you're in the Frederick, MD area, Roscoe Bartlett's Energy Conference is on Monday, September 26. We expect to have reports from both.
