Why was Post Carbon Marin formed?

Worldwide oil production is very close to beginning its inexorable decline. It will impact almost every part of our lives, from food production to how we earn and spend money.

What happened at the first meeting?

Residents from all over Marin came to learn the very latest about oil and natural gas. We also started to discuss how we might prepare while creating a thriving community.

What will we do at this meeting?

We'll discuss how to organize ourselves; we'll launch some initiatives and provide updates on others already in process (we've begun to collect infrastructure information for the county: how old are the water/sewer pipes, etc.).

Where is Post Carbon Marin on the Net?

I still don't see what the big deal is...what's peak oil?
