As posted on The Oil Drum: New York City, a conference on Local Solutions to Energy Problems is coming up in New York in April. The ambitious schedule is jam-packed with presentations, panels and films.
The conference aims not only to educate people on peak oil -- the end of the era of cheap oil -- but to give people ideas and tools that they can bring to creating clean energy solutions in their own lives. "Regional experts in economic localization, sustainable food systems, alternative transportation, and responsible financial management will share their insights into the evolution of a low-energy, sustainable society. Numerous networking opportunities will be available with established local organizations that have already embarked on this vital transition."
