      Houston has denied climate change because we are the oil capital of
      the world. But we have as much to lose from rising sea levels,
      stronger torrential rains and hurricanes, and other climate change
      impacts as places that have led climate protection efforts like
      Massachusetts, Californian, New York, and Seattle.

      The good news is that peak oil makes protecting the climate easier
      "provided the use of coal is phased out and ... use of unconventional
      carbons, ... is accompanied by CO2 capture and storage" said
      Drs. Hansen and Kharecha of NASA in a recent paper. Peak oil is
      the leveling off and decline of global oil production.

      Dr. Kharecha will speak in Houston on Friday night 10/19 at the World
      Peak Oil Conference by ASPO-USA in downtown Houston from 10/17 to
      10/21. Entrance fee for the talk is $20. Entrance fee for the
      conference ranges from $150 to $500.

      "What if the secret behind civilization is that we've had really good
      weather? ... A sudden cooling and drying 8,200 years ago set back
      the development of the first cities in the Fertile Crescent. Some
      4,000 years ago, decades of drought accompanied by howling winds
      scoured the Mesopotamian plain of the Akkadians, the most powerful
      civilization of the region. The Mayans never recovered from intense
      drought in the first decade of the tenth century A.D. ...

      Now climate is changing again."
