# 3/29: Blacking Out: the Great Power Denial (Peak Oil)
Dona Benicia Room, Benicia Public Library. Mon Mar 29 7-9 p.m.
Almost every passing day brings news of further problems with the global oil supply and Americans already know that something strange is happening to natural gas prices. The truth is leaking out that the world is now finally in the long-predicted oil peak/plateau phase, and will soon begin an unstoppable decline. To compound this situation, the US is getting towards the end of its easy natural gas, which some have seen as a temporary bridge to a solar future – or more likely more coal and nuclear.
Julian will discuss the ways in which energy shortages are becoming the defining issue of this decade, and are deep drivers behind US military policy and hidden causes of much mysterious behaviour in the economy. Some of the supposed solutions and pretended panaceas will be critically examined, and Julian will also talk about how energy is linked to global warming (which will likely be the defining issue of the century). Finally, we will discuss why local responses leading to local self-reliance in renewable energy, money & food, will become the only workable alternatives in a world growing terminally short of big, centralized energy.
Julian Darley is the author of the forthcoming book "High Noon for Natural Gas" (from Chelsea Green Publishing), an environmental philosopher, journalist, and founder of Post Carbon Institute & Global Public Media
