"Change is in the Wind" - Peak Oil Events
There's an interesting op-ed on the Culture Change website, referring to how the national (well, U.S.) conversation on peak oil is getting louder -- in part through conferences like our own:
"Many awareness-raising events concerned with peak oil and petrocollapse are taking place lately. The news media, mainly concerned with price sensation, are helping somewhat to awaken the oil-addicted population, albeit with narrower concerns than the End of the Oil Age. Recent headlines include 'Beijing’s Pursuit of Oil' and 'Consumers Face a New Reality.' The San Francisco Board of Supervisors unanimously passed a peak oil resolution on April 11, 2006. It acknowledges the threats posed by peak oil and calls for the establishment of a city-wide study to assess San Francisco's vulnerability to peak oil."
The bulk of the article is Jan Lundberg reporting on the Pentagon-sponsored presentation, "Energy: a Conversation about Our National Addiction" on April 24th.
