Richard Heinberg to speak in Northfield November 12th

If you care about the fate of the Earth and the society our children, grandchildren, and subsequent generations will inherit, you owe it to yourself and those generations to come to spend part of your Friday evening at the Northfield Ballroom (1055 Highway 3 North). Richard Heinberg, award-winning author of eight books, including The Party’s Over: Oil, War and the Fate of Industrial Societies; Powerdown: Options and Actions for a Post-Carbon World; and Peak Everything: Waking Up to the Century of Declines, will speak on the subject Mom, Dad, We Need to Talk: Preparing Together for a Changed World” at 6:30 p.m. this Friday, November 12th.polarge

I’ve read several of Heinberg’s books and saw him speak in Minneapolis several years ago. Whether you think that the issues of peak oil and global climate destabilization are critically important to the future of humankind (as I do) or think that they’re a bunch of liberal crap, I can confidently predict that he will provide thought-provoking commentary on how our community can plan for rapid and radical change that will challenge your thinking. I encourage thoughtful Northfielders of all political persuasions to attend.

The talk, sponsored by Transition Northfield, will be followed Saturday morning by a community discussion at 9:00 a.m. at the Northfield First United Church of Christ (300 Union Street).
