    As committed, after having a terrific time traveling up the West Coast to hold Summits in San Francisco, Portland and Seattle, and then on to Denver and Austin, we're now bringing the same experience to more of the cities you've asked us to.

    And this will be a particularly special event to attend. Why? Because we've scored a major coup: David Stockman will be joining us in person as co-presenter for the day!

    So if you live in travel distance to NYC, come join us on Sunday September 16, 2018. You won't want to miss this!

    Executive Summary

    • There is not nearly enough net energy to meet our growth expectations in our lifetime
    • We are past the "tipping point". A hard rendezvous with limits to growth will arrive in the next 2 decades

    Energy Denial

    It is said that you cannot explain water to a fish and I have nearly as difficult time trying to explain energy to people today. We are surrounded by it so completely it is difficult to properly appreciate.

    But it is in every particle of food you eat, every piece of furniture in your house, every item you wear, and every trip you take — are all 100% dependent on energy that came from somewhere and subsidizes every single item and action.

    Fossil fuels are the vast majority of all the energy we use and, it cannot be repeated enough, they visibly and invisibly subsidize the so-called renewables, too. By that I mean solar and wind power cannot be generated until and unless the components are first manufactured and installed. And those activities are nearly 100% driven by fossil fuels today.

How are the roads they drove on built and maintained? How is concrete made and how did it all get to the job site? What do the factories and foundries run on that built the windmill? How far did each windmill component have to travel before arriving at the site?

    The answer to all of those questions is…

    The stories we tell ourselves have great influence over our destiny. These narratives shape our belief system and thus, in turn, the decisions we make.

    Find yourself making poor choices? That's likely due to a fallacy in one or more of the beliefs you hold.

    Psychology and social science has re-discovered this key learning: We can improve our odds of success in life by improving the stories we tell ourselves.
