"Cheap oil is the party that we have been enjoying the past 150 years and that party is coming to an end. Within our lifetimes were going to see the end of the age of oil, and the result of that will be the end of the American way of life" - Richard Heinberg - in an excerpt from The END of SUBURBIA, www.endofsuburbia.com

"Permanently increasing oil prices and, at some point, the inability to obtain fossil fuels at any price will make much of our urban landscape more or less untenable. Politics and the economy will become more locally-organized, and some localities will adapt better than others" - Richard B. Anderson, www.forthefuture.org

Richard Bruce Anderson, Ph. D., is the founder and Senior Fellow at For The Future (www.forthefuture.org). Dr. Anderson is the originator of the Consumerism Project at For The Future. He is the author of Waking Up from the American Dream: How to Live a Happy, Satisfying Life in Our Unhealthy Consumer Culture. As a speaker and writer, Dr. Anderson has pursued an active role in the voluntary simplicity movement. Since 1998 he has been a member of the board of directors of Seeds of Simplicity, a national organization that organizes conferences, conducts workshops, and distributes a national newsletter on voluntary simplicity.  Read more about Dr. Anderson at www.forthefuture.org/about_us.htm.

Los Angeles Post Carbon is an organization of outposts of the Post Carbon Institute (www.postcarbon.org). Our industrial society is approaching the end of the oil age, and is completely unprepared for the consequences. Our aim is to educate the community on the issue of oil depeltion and the coming peak in global oil production, take action in our community to prepare for the post-carbon age and have fun along the way.  Our projects include organizing educational events such as Options and Actions for a Post Carbon Los Angeles, and working together with other local groups that are working torwards sustainability.  http://LA.PostCarbon.org

The event organizers are Eric Einem, eric@peakoilaction.org and Aire Celeste Norell, vegan@aireceleste.com. Check back at the event webpage for more information: LA.PostCarbon.org/options.htm


Peak Oil Information:

Peak oil is the point in time when extraction of oil from the earth reaches its highest point and then begins to decline.  Most oil experts estimate this peak will occur by 2010.

§  Oil is used for transportation, electricity, heating, cooling, pesticides, plastics, pharmaceuticals, asphalt, concrete and steel.

§  On average an American consumes 3 gallons of oil per day (1.8 gallons of which are imported).

§  In the US, 10 calories of fossil-fuel energy go into every 1 calorie of food.

§  Oil extraction will be physically unable to meet global demand

§  Alternative energy sources like nuclear and natural gas will fall far short of compensating for expected shortages of oil.

The first step in preparing for an energy-reduced future is to educate yourself.
