Sharing Stories at Post Carbon Institute

Asher Miller, Post Carbon Institute
From Post Carbon Institute Executive Director Asher Miller:

Now in our seventh year, we’re going stronger than ever here at Post Carbon Institute. During the course of those years, we’ve been continually amazed at the progress and changes made in lives, homes, at schools, at work and in political arenas by people like you. Your efforts have given us great cause for optimism.

Thank you.

We’d like to hear more about what you’re doing. As you may know, our Senior Fellow, Richard Heinberg, is widely recognized as one of the world’s foremost educators on the perils of a global oil economy. Right now, Richard is starting his next book about how individuals and communities can build resilience in the face of uncertainty and rapid change caused by economic collapse, peak oil, climate change, and other crises. In short, this book is about you. So, you see, Richard wants to hear your stories; the stories of what individuals, families and communities are doing to transition to a post-carbon world.

Please contact us with your stories by e-mailing us at: stories@postcarbon.org

Tell us about your inspirational efforts, or maybe about those of someone you know. Are there any businesses, communities, or families who inspire you? Not only is Richard looking to illuminate these efforts in his new book, but we’d love to feature them on our soon-to-launch, brand spanking new website.

While we hate deadlines, publishers seem to derive great joy in imposing them. Meaning we have to your stories by September 18, 2009.
