How long can this global oil supply level be maintained? When will the decline in oil supply begin? How will that impact already rising gasoline prices, oil prices, food prices and the struggling state of the world economy?
To address shrinking fossil fuel supplies, increasing CO2 emissions, and rising global inequity we need to make immediate and drastic cuts to our energy use. Learn about viable curtailment strategies for food, housing, and transportation, why most "sustainable" and "green" techniques are inadequate, and how we can create cooperative low-energy communities to survive.

The International Conference on Peak Oil and Climate Change: Paths to Sustainability explores the root cause of rising gas prices, global warming, biodiversity loss and other indicators of global unsustainability.
