Our present way of life in America is not sustainable. The question is whether we can make a transition to a graceful and sustainable future society, or descend into energy warlordism. Conservation, limits to growth and consumption and the transition to renewable energy and organic agriculture are some of the necessary approaches to the peak oil discussion. This week on the program we'll the look at the role that our social relations can play in meeting these future challenges - the development of community values and cooperative practices as a tool for living well in a world of scarce resources.

In the first hour of the program, fostorering resource conservation through cooperation via intentional communities. In our second hour, how the people of Cuba deindustrialized in the face of sudden politically induced energy scarcity.

Both of the presentations we'll hear tonight were recorded at the first US conference on peak oil and community solutions that was held in November 2004 in Yellow Springs, Ohio
