Richard Heinberg speaking on Peak Oil-- what it means and it's impact on us-- Eugene, Oregon, January 10, 2006, sponsored by the Eugene Permaculture Guild, introduced by the Mayor of Eugene

Richard Heinberg is a writer and teacher whose focus in these times is "peak oil". He has become one respected as one of the country's experts on peak oil and travels and lectures nationally and internationally on the subject. He also teaches Human Ecology at New College of San Francisco in Santa Rosa, California. Two of his several books are The Party's Over-Oil, War and the Fate of Industrial Societies and Powerdown:Options and Actions for a Post Carbon World. He explains that "peak oil" means that the cheap oil we've had available to build our industrial world is over and our industrialized world has already started coming to the end that is inevitable and which is likely to be a huge dislocation from the way of life to which we are accustomed in the "first world". It will affect the energy that we're used to having and transportation, food supply, common materials that we're used to which are based on oil -- plastic, clothes, buildings and on and on. As for the timing of this huge dislocation to our life-styles -- he thinks it's quite soon, that we may already have hit peak or will hit or soon, but really no one knows for sure and we will ony know for sure in retrospect. In this talk he explains the history, what's happening now with oil and how, whenever this long change and depression comes about, preparation and living sustainably without oil (and natural gas) will make the transition easier so there is no reason to put it off.
