Next week, a very promising conference about peak oil (primer) and what comes after is taking place in New York City. The list of speakers is impressive and includes James Howard Kunstler and Jan Lundberg among many others. "The idea for a conference in New York titled Petrocollapse is the brainchild of Andrew McKillop, one of the speakers for the conference. His idea was to have key peak oil experts present their knowledge to the public. [...] The audience is encouraged to be participants at the conference, and we all hope to come away well informed, better connected and hopeful of positive action for these interesting times." The where & when is: The Community Church of New York Unitarian Universalist, 40 E. 35th Street, New York, NY 10016, October 5, 2005 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
