SFBC Treehouse Talk: Peak Oil and Local Communities

12:44 PM PDT on July 29, 2009

"After years of debate, many scientists tracking energy supplies believe we're past the peak rate of oil production. Statistics show that output peaked in 2008. Will the gap be filled using different energy sources? How will declining oil supplies impact societies dependent on cheap, convenient energy? What about our own families and communities? Join SFBC member, Michael Poremba, and get the skinny on peak oil, and learn how local communities are responding to peak oil and related global issues, such as climate change."
