Conference 8/13/06 Peak Oil
- Second Annual Peak Oil Mini-Conference
Sunday August 13, 2006
1 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Maintaining our way of life depends on cheap oil
but this is ending. Global oil production will
peak soon, if it hasnt already, and then
decline. The expected consequences are rising
gasoline prices, rising food prices and a
stagnant economy. Discuss how to cope with rising energy prices with:
· Jeffrey Brown, independent geologist in
the Dallas area, author of "What the mainstream
media are not telling you about the run-up in oil
prices" and "Texas and lower 48 oil production as
a model for Saudi Arabia and the world"
· Alan S. Drake, a consulting engineer
based in New Orleans and author of "The
electrification of transportation as a response
to the peaking of world oil production".
· Karl Pepple, City of Houston, Director of Environmental Programming
· Fred Yebra, Austin Energy, Director of Demand Side Management

If we attempt to ... do things ... for the world
without deepening our own self-understanding, ...
freedom, integrity, and capacity to love, we will
not have anything to give to others. We will
communicate nothing but our own obsessions, our
aggressiveness, our ego-centered ambitions;
Thomas Merton quoted in Soul of a Citizen by Paul Rogat Loeb
