This is a first for us at Post Carbon Institute/Energy Bulletin: an online ‘creative’ fundraising campaign. We want to create a presentation deck for all the HUNDREDS of people who have asked us over the years for our slides. But rather than just dump our slides on people, we want to develop a presentation deck and story that is easy to present and personally resonant. Richard has written a fantastic script that presents our oil journey in a truly accessible way, we are now looking to turn this into something really user friendly and inspiring to present. If we’re able to raise the funds, not only will we create the slideshow but will train volunteers so that they can deliver it in their own communities.
While we’re not seeking much (we’re very adept at getting a lot of bang for our buck), the end product will be a powerful educational tool that all of us can use to raise awareness and ‘basic literacy’ within our homes and communities.
We hope you can support this project in one way or another and thank you, once again, for all your support in the past. We’ve a whole lot of work to do. If you have friends who might be interested please check out our campaign page and share the link.
We’re out to save the world.
This is straight talk, no hyperbole. We don’t have much time and it is critical that all of us truly understand the real cost of energy production in an industrial age and how this impacts the environment, the economy and the very fabric of society.
Fact is,while we’re all chafing at the bit to act (do something, anything!), even many hardcore environmentalists still don’t really get it. Beyond the environment, there are numerous interwoven issues that we have to deal with… and there is no magic bullet that will save us. We have hard work to do. And a hell of a lot of it.
