The International Forum on Globalisation Teach-In.
Starting tomorrow in Washington is the International Forum on Globalisation’s **Teach-in: Confronting the Global Triple Crisis – Climate Change, Peak Oil, Global Resource Depletion & Extinction**, a wonderful event with an amazing array of speakers. Speakers include Megan Quinn, Maude Barlow, Richard Heinberg, Wes Jackson, Michael Klare, David Korten, Frances Moore Lappe, Bill McKibben and Vandana Shiva, to name but a few among 60. I was invited to speak, but having decided last year not to fly any more, I decided instead to film my talk and send it in the post, thereby saving 2,788 kgs of carbon by staying at home. I will post my presentation on YouTube tomorrow once the conference has started. If you are near Washington and can make it, it looks like a potentially life-changing event.
