Peak Oil Presentation Delivered to Seattle Council Member Mike O’Brien’s Streets for All Seattle Project
It has been too long since my last post. I apologize. I have no valid excuse, other than the fact that my schedule has been incredibly overbooked. Because I’ve been so busy, I feel justified in ‘double dipping’ with this particular post, which is in fact a short Peak Oil presentation that I just delivered to a group of Seattle City Council Members (Mike O’Brien and Tom Rasmussen), self-proclaimed transportation policy wonks, and representatives from some transportation special interest groups (bike advocates, rail advocates, etc.). Both Mike O’Brien – Chair of Seattle’s Carbon Neutral Initiative – and Tom Rasumussen – Chair of the Transportation Committee – spoke briefly before I took the stage.
It is safe to say that outside an ASPO conference (Association for the Study of Peak Oil) one is never preaching to the choir when giving a Peak Oil presentation. That said, I believe that this was one of the most friendly and receptive crowds yet. So, without any further ado, here are my slides and a transcript of my short (10 min) talk.
