Below is an announcement for an upcoming webcast of Richard Heinberg's recent lecture in Eugene. A capacity crowd of 600 people attended and several hundred were turned away. Peak Oil is becoming an unavoidable topic even for the really jaded. There is a lot of hype and a lot of discrediting swirling around the topic.
My recommendation is to get as much information from as many sources as possible. The first part of this lecture is a factual presentation of information that can't be easily refuted. The second portion gets into opinion about what it all means and what we should be doing about it. In this area there is some contention but the facts remain and there is no questioning that all things we know about transportation, globalism vs regionalism and the american way of life are due for a fairly drastic change.
Here's the announcement:
