Just what is Peak Oil? How will Peak Oil affect your life and your lifestyle? How will Peak Oil affect your City and its Health Care system?
Peak Oil will present many new challenges to our society in coming years; however, it can also present opportunities to those that address Peak Oil now. Expert panelists will examine Peak Oil, expose some of these challenges, and present scenarios for mitigating its impact. The Energy Club cordially invites you to an event that could change your life.
This event will feature presentations and discussion on the topic of "Peak Oil." In August 2008, the City of Edmonton released a report on Peak Oil that documented some of the effects that high fuel costs are having on citizens and local industry. Yet, the administration has not established an official position on Peak Oil, citing among other things disagreement regarding the underlying causes of today's high energy prices. The Energy Club is inviting informed speakers to give their assessments of Peak Oil, and to discuss its local and worldwide implications.
