Building a world of
resilient communities.

MAIN LIST

 

Power Down or Power Shift?


Did fracking kill off Peak Oil? Or just the world's hope of alternative energy? Coming up, energy guru Richard Heinberg on his new book "Snake oil, How Fracking's False Promise of Plenty Imperils Our Future."

But if conventional society can't power down, maybe we need a Powershift. Two budding youth activists heading for the October Powershift meet-up in Pittsburg tell it like it is. Later we'll hear Howard University Senior Brian Menifee, but Radio Ecoshock starts right now with this moving story from West Virginia.
