RSVP to Rebekah Smith ([email protected]), 651-296-8879

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.


Guest Speaker Chris Martenson

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


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.
