Also, remember for Saturday afternoon there will be a FREE open conference for teachers and youth/students working on peak oil issues, featuring some of these amazing people and some cool others to be announced.

Glad to see Chris Martenson's name amongst the various luminaries. He's got a keen eye on the financial world but at the same time is completely savvy with climate chaos and resource depletion. His recent podcast interview with Joel Salatin was terrific. I'm sorry I won't be able to attend!

Someday I will get to go to one of these. Someday maybe it won't be on the coast. Someday I will have vacation and time in my schedule to travel.

Any bets on whether someday will ever come? *grin*

Seriously, great work and I hope we can get at least one member of our local transition group to go. It sounds like an amazing conference!
