I've been invited to talk to the MN State legislature about the three E's.  One of the sessions will be open to the public.

LEGISLATIVE ENERGY COMMISSION MEETING

Guest Speaker Chris Martenson

Co-Chairs: Rep. Bill Hilty & Sen. Yvonne Prettner Solon



PROGRAM

Martenson will present a broad and nuanced explanation of the interdependence of the economy, energy and environment. Known for his meticulously researched, data-rich and strictly non-partisan work, he will explore the limitations of an economy and geopolitical system dependent on infinite growth as it encounters the limits of a finite planet.



Through a clear, concise and illuminating explanation of demographics, debt, and the concepts of peak oil and net energy, Dr. Martenson will paint a startling portrait of the defining predicaments of our age and attest to why it is better to be a year early than a day late in recognizing, accepting and addressing the challenges we face.
