Popular Energy Site to Offer Enhanced Features
January 14, 2009 (Sebastopol, CA) Today Post Carbon Institute announced an agreement with EnergyBulletin.net to formally adopt the site as a core Institute program.
Said Asher Miller, Post Carbon Institute Executive Director, "Since its inception in 2004, EnergyBulletin.net has served a vital role for the growing community of professionals and concerned citizens seeking high quality news and opinion about the peak of global energy supplies.
“Throughout this time, volunteers have dedicated countless hours to manage the site. As the need grows even more dire, Post Carbon Institute is keen to ensure that EnergyBulletin.net thrives. We are proud to take EnergyBulletin.net under our wing and plan to enhance the site by integrating our Global Public Media content and other multimedia to produce a one stop shop of the most in-depth peak oil and energy content on the web."
EnergyBulletin.net covers a wide range of news, research, and analysis including:
- energy production statistics, models, projections and analysis;
- articles which provide insight into the implications of peak oil across broad areas including geopolitics, climate change, ecology, population, finance, urban design, health, and even religious and gender issues;
- a range of information to help preparedness for peak energy, such as:
- renewable energy information
- alternative financial systems
- low energy agriculture
- other subjects that lead to better understanding the implications of and solutions to an energy production peak.
Said Bart Anderson of EnergyBulletin.net, "The last I looked, Energy Bulletin was getting about 370,000 visits per month (about 1,325,000 page views). With social changes coming faster than ever, we need a more robust organization so we can continue to support the community that's grown up around peak oil and sustainability.
"We've had a relationship with Post Carbon for years, so this next step feels natural. It's the right thing to do."
