[Last year’s Community Solution Conference was one of the most dynamic Peak Oil centered events ever to take place in North America. Dedicated activists and agriculturalists that attended the conference still use it as a benchmark to judge all other related events.

The conference offers a holistic approach to Peak Oil, bringing together experts in many diverse yet related fields. Richard Heinberg, Julian Darley, Pat Murphy, Vicki Robin, Megan Quinn, David W. Orr, and Peter Bane are just a few of the brilliant individuals who will be presenting invaluable information. Visit Community Solution for more information. If you can get to Yellow Springs, Ohio by September 22, do not miss this conference. – MK]
